Info for Marcel Dupré Organ Recital: Widor & Dupré (Remastered 2015)
The organ king of instruments stood for centuries solely in the service of church music Widor who as an organist felt himself bound to follow the traditions of Johann Sebastian Bach was daring enough to undertake an historically significant step by founding the French organ school Its representatives strove for the authentic performance of Bach s works and redefined the almost boundless possibilities of their instrument in their own compositions Widor‘s Organ Symphonies which were certainly intended to incorporate orchestral characteristics are notable for their finely worked counterpoint prominent rhythm sure sense of form and massive tonal effects as is impressively demonstrated here in this performance of the Allegro from Symphony No 6 The introvert Salve Regina is in a very different vein conjuring up mystic spheres with its Gregorian melodies Likewise Dupres Prelude and Fugue is imbued with a sacral character whereby the scurrying Prelude culminates in a powerful main section His Triptyque provides a rather more worldly contrast with its dancelike nature and nicely rounds off this record which offers an excellent crosssection of the art of two giants of the organ What is more the 6900 organ pipes of New York‘s St Thomas Church ensure that the listener will enjoy a truly powerful sound.
