Charles Marie-Widor The Organ Symphonies


The fifth volume in our series of Charles-Marie Widor’s Organ Symphonies, performed by Joseph Nolan on the magnificent Cavaille-Coll organs of La Madeleine, Paris and Saint-Sernin, Toulouse. Bridging the generations from Mendelssohn to Messiaen, Empire to Republic, Widor was born to the organ. His Lyonnaise kinsfolk were organ-builders, he showed early talent for the instrument, and for decades was the embodiment of its might and splendour across the Gallic domain – his ‘Organ Symphonies’ were genre-defining in their influence.

★★★★★ Nolan transcends Widor’s scores, truly revelling in the Gothic beauty of this music and the grandiose instruments of the belle époque – Choir & Organ

Joseph Nolan proves himself an excellent Widor interpreter – MusicWeb International
