Carl Piutti (1846-1902) was a teacher at the Leipzig Conservatory and an organist at St. Thomas's in Leipzig. He wrote many organ pieces in a late-romantic vein, including Two Hundred Chorale Preludes for Organ, op. 34. These organ preludes were among the most frequently heard liturgical organ music of the late 19th century. Their mixture of chorale elaboration, melodic figuration, striking harmony, toccata-like virtuosity and imitation was never an end in itself, but always subservient to the essence of the underlying hymn tunes. Influences from Mendelssohn are evident in the melodic writing.
