    Anyone have any opinions on the organ works of Franz Schmidt? Haven't heard them yet.

    On my side, I would say Michel Corette's Grand jeu avec tonnerre,



    and more recent, Francis Chapelet's Etna 71

    Neither have I ... but I have a couple of his works for organ. Very energetic works, much beyond my abilities at this point in my life. Nor do I have access to an organ that would do his works justice.

    My favorite organ work is the Poulenc concerto for organ, timpani and strings.

    Shamefully underrated and almost never played!!!

    JSB's is the best, I agree. However, Johann Caspar Kerll isn't so bad!

    Overall, relatively uncultivated territory for me, but I´ve got a good collection of works.

    Favourites rather plain - BWV565 and Liszt´s Ad Nos-Fantasia with Chorzempa (Philips), plus some of Händel´s charming Organ Concertos.

    I personally prefer Smalins recording of Toccata & Fugue, much clearer and I love the tempo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipzR9bhei_o

    Mozart's Epistle Sonatas are among my favorites. Short little concerted organ works to be played between movements of his masses. Delighful stuff!

    #1:

    Olivier Messiaen - la Nativité du Seigneur (1935)

    Favourite interpreter of this work; Jean Boyer, Olivier Latry, Gillian Weir, the composer

    Very sad that Jean Boyer never recorded it commercially!

    That's probably my number 1 too. Immense work.

    I'm starting to explore Messiaen's Méditations sur le mystère de la sainte trinité - does anyone have any thoughts about the music, recorded performances etc?
