Organ Works on CD

Max Reger's fantasies for organ are, like Liszt's works, virtually symphonic poems for solo organ. The Op40/2 work is divided into 6 movements, and each mirrors the text of the Protestant chorale on which the work is based anger, sin and love all are depicted here. Cesar Franck's Piece Heroique is the last of his Three Pieces for organ composed in 1878 for the inaugural concerts of the new Cavaille-Coll organ in the Salle des Fetes in the Palais du Trocadero. The Franco-Prussian war had just ended, and the French had been defeated. The troops marched through Paris in 1871. It must have been a somber procession. Franck's work is rather more funereal than jingoistic - it's emotions are ambivalent. Just as Liszt was a piano virtuoso, Edwin Lemare was the foremost organ virtuoso of his time. Taking a work by another piano virtuoso - Camille Saint- Saens' orchestral symphonic poem Danse Macabre (already Liszt had transcribed the original for piano) and transcribing it for organ Lemare created one of the most famous of organ showpieces.
