About

The monumental and colourful sounds of the organ and symphony orchestra blend together perfectly on this splendid recording of Saint-SaŽnsís ďOrganĒ Symphony, Poulencís Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani and the Toccata from Charles-Marie Widorís Organ Symphony no.5. The majestic organ chords at the start of the final movement of Saint-SaŽnsís Symphony equal the sublime effect of Beethovenís choral conclusion of his Ninth, and have made it an audiencesí favourite straight from the moment of its 1886 premiere.

Poulencís Organ Concerto shows the composerís retrospective side, while simultaneously offering flashes of his stylistic playfulness. After Poulencís serene concerto, Widorís Toccata offers a vibrant conclusion to this programme.

The Geneva Victoria Hall organ (Van den Heuvel, 1993) is played by Christopher Jacobson, who has already released a solo album with performances on the Aeolian Organ at Duke University Chapel, as well as a recording of Tyberg Masses with the South Dakota Chorale on PENTATONE. On this album, he works with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and conductor Kazuki Yamada, who have a vast PENTATONE discography.
