I have heard this organ in person and this SACD captures it well, and M. Latry captures Cesar Franck beautifully on this instrument. The organ roars when it needs to roar and purrs when it needs to purr. The Prelude, Fugue and Variation has to be one of the best performance since Biggs on Columbia LP. I thoroughly enjoy his performance of the A minor Chorale. I wonder if the remaining works will be released by Olivier Latry at the Notre Dame organ!!!! This truly is "The King Of Instruments"!

None of this I am about to write is new. Indeed, César Franck's organ music characteristics are a well known quantity. It is mentioned on the reverse of this SACD that it was Liszt's educated opinion that (Franck's) "These poetic pieces have a clearly marked place alongside the masterpieces of J.S.Bach." There is no doubt that Franck was heavily influenced by Bach's music as well as Liszt himself and Wagner by way of Mendelsshon and Beethoven. This shows in his chromatic writing and in the development of thematic cells and the use of successive thematic modifications.

We should note that Franck wished his organ pieces to be played according to the registrations he had specified; clearly, the authenticity of any performance depends upon strict respect for these directions. We should also be reminded that these compositions were written at and for a very special Cavaillé-Coll organ at the Église de Sainte-Clotilde. This Cavallié-Coll has important differences in it's disposition compared to the normative organs by the same builder; the location and physical confines of the nave where the organ was placed in the late 1850's determined this. Thus, other performing solutions are necessary when performing Franck's music on other organs.

While all the pieces in this SACD were written "in" and "for" this organ, the only exception is the "Pièce heroique" that was composed to be played initially at the then new organ of the Trocaderó and that is a conundrum that has never been resolved satisfactorily ever since...so it seems.

Latry's performance is no exception to the rule; he had to find a compromise solution for his own organ at Notre-Dame Cathedral.
