With only a few exceptions, organ music since the time of Max Reger had lost its connection to the general development of advanced music. Composers were inspired to use the serial technique to organize musical elements other than pitch by the revolutionary approach to rhythm developed in the 1930s and 1940s by the French composer Olivier Messiaen. Unlike most other avant-garde composers, Messiaen was an organist and thus very interested in the organ and in trying to apply new compositional techniques to his instrument. The chapter also provides information on the Bremen concert in May 1962 that was regarded by the music critics as revolutionary in approach.

Keywords:   Bremen concert, Olivier Messiaen, organ music, compositional techniques, Max Reger
