Mon nouvel orgue? C’est une orchestre!
(My new organ?  It’s an orchestra!)
Works of César Franck (1822-189)
In commemoration of the 200th anniversary of his birth

César Franck is without question the most influential and significant French organist and composer for organ of the 19th century.  Taking full advantage of the technological and sonic developments of the instruments designed and built by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, he created an entirely new musical language for the organ, and inspired a generation of French organist/composers whose legacy continues even to this day.  5 of his 12 major works for “grand orgue” will be presented in this program, concluding with his landmark Grande Pièce Symphonique.

This concert will not be livestreamed, but we plan to post a video version after the concert....watch this space!
