4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying in every regard, February 12, 2007
This review is from: Complete Organ Works, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
There's something special about those glorious Cavaille-Coll organs, they all have that uniquely rich, chocolatey tone in the reeds. At first I was a little dissapointed that this particular Cavaille had been chosen as it's got no 32' stops, then ... upon reading Widors registration guide on the music, he doesn't mention 32' (like he does on Symphony N. 5 for example).

van Oosten's playing is insightful, crafted and beautifully assembled. Given the acoustics in the church where this is recorded is quite vibrant he allows loads of breathing space at phrase ends (especially in louder passages) and this helps with resultant murky textures. Symphony 2 also contains a rendition of the "alternative" scherzo, which is typical Widor: cheeky and elfin in feeling.
