WIDOR: Organ Favourites

Charles-Marie Widor’s ten organ symphonies, inspired by the magnificent Cavaillé-Coll organ at Saint-Sulpice in Paris revolutionised the art of organ playing and composition in France. This disc of selected highlights includes the Symphony No. 5, the best-known of Widor’s symphonies, with its famous concluding Toccata, the Andante cantabile from Symphony No. 4, one of the composer’s loveliest slow movements, and the hugely virtuosic Allegro from Symphony No. 6, which features one of the most exciting crescendos in the organ repertoire. Bach’s Memento is a tribute to a composer whose reputation Widor did much to re-establish in France.
