ArtistsJean-Baptiste Dupont (organ)
Trained in the French organ tradition, both in interpretation and improvisation, his new recording of Widor's Eighth Organ Symphony combines this tradition with the sound-world of a Cavaillé-Coll organ: the instrument at Saint-Sernin (Toulouse) seems to be custom-made for the most complex work by Widor who confessed that without the experience of listening to the Cavaillé-Coll instruments he would not have written any organ music.
Jean-Baptiste Dupont is deeply rooted in the heritage of the French music tradition. His extensive expertise as an improviser leads to a particular state of consciousness within music: when interpreting repertoire works, he grasps and analyses the creative structures of the work on a deep level; in the moment of the performance, he experiences them like an improviser – the creative process of the composer becomes his own when he plays.
You are invited to listen to one of the most famous French organ works, played on a French organ by a French organist - a resounding commitment to the French tradition!
