Symphonie Gothique, Opus 70
Symphonie Romane, Opus 73
Charles-Marie Widor (1844 – 1937) created the Symphony for organ, of which the only example before him was César Franck’s Grande Pièce symphonique. By the time he was 30, Widor was France’s foremost organ composer and virtuoso. As organist of Saint-Sulpice, he presided over the largest organ in France. Succeeding Franck as professor of organ at the Paris Conservatory, he numbered Charles Tournemire, Henri Mulet, and Louis Vierne among his pupils; and later, as professor of composition, taught Marcel Dupré, Lili and Nadia Boulanger, Darius Milhaud, and Arthur Honegger.

The instrument is charming, deliciously dry in its setting, bright, cheerful, in every way a pleasure. So is the performance.
