ArtistsJoseph Nolan (organ)
The fifth volume in Signum's series of Charles-Marie Widor’s Organ Symphonies, performed by Joseph Nolan on the magnificent Cavaillé-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’ being genre-defining in their influence.
Praise for other releases from this series:
“This looks like shaping up to be the Widor Organ Symphonies cycle of the decade” - Musicweb International
“What impress most is Nolan’s marvellous sense of architecture and far-sighted view of these scores… Add to this the sumptuous sound Signum has captured from La Madeleine and you have a disc which pleads Widor’s case with consummate eloquence.” - Marc Rochester, Gramophone – January 2014
"The spacious acoustic, excellently judged by Signum’s engineering team helps set a patina of Gothic mystery round Nolan’s purposefully paced, fluid middle movements.” - Building a library, December 2013
