Description

Daniel Roth is widely acclaimed as one of the world’€™s leading interpreters of French Romantic Organ Literature today. He is the titular organist of Saint-Sulpice in Paris where his predecessors were the who’€™s who of French organ composers and organists: Charles-Marie Widor, Marcel Dupré and Jean-Jacques Grunenwald. The world-renowned Cavaillé-Coll pipe organ at Saint-Sulpice inspired all of them to artist heights of composition and improvisation. This pipe organ is one of the few large Cavaillé-Coll pipe organs that is almost as the builder would have known it at the end of the 19th €“ Century. This instrument is a perfect venue for Mr. Roth’€™s recording of two Symphonies of Charles-Marie Widor: Symphonie No. 5 pour grand orgue, Op. 42, No. 1 and Symphonie No. 6 pour grand orgue, Op. 42, No. 2. Symphonie No. 5 end with one of the best-known organ works The Widor Toccata, with its unceasing cascade on the keyboards and its roaring earthshaking pedal theme. This Toccata has great appeals to organists and non-organists alike and has been used a the recessional to many weddings. These recording were made by the noted Germany recording engineer, Christoph Martin Frommen and the sound quality is excellent. The physical CD is a limited quantity press. The recording is packaged in an elegant Digipak, with a 20 page booklet with notes on the Widor Symphonies by concert organist Stephen Tharp, stoplist and numerous photographs.
