The pipe organ at the Parish Church of Saint-Sulpice in Paris France is one of Cavaillé-Coll's masterpieces. Vincent Dubois plays a varied program on this pipe organ featuring works by Mozart, a transcription of Liszt's "Evocation à la Chapelle Sixtine", a transcription by Vierne of Rachmaninoff's Prelude in c-sharp minor, and an improvisation at the console. Vincent Dubois is one of the brightest talents in the organ world. This CD was produced and recorded by Christoph Frommen in SACD Surround Sound. Surround Sound Recording is the ultimate in audio technology, creating extraordinary sonic definition and reproduction of the room ambiance. Included in the 32-page booklet accompanying the CD is an interview with Michel Goussu, the organbuilder who cares for, and was part of, the team that restored the instrument. Michel Goussu discusses fascinating details about the history, design and care of the organ at Saint-Sulpice. A photo essay of Vincent Dubois recording the Liszt, working with the 2 registrants making crescendos and decrescendos, is also included in the CD booklet. This disc will play on a standard CD player, but an SACD player is needed to hear it in Surround Sound.
