  1. The Symphonic Organ – Orchestra Edition

    About a year ago, we shared a montage of music for the symphonic organ – works by three giants of the French Organ tradition – exploiting the palette of organs built mainly in the 1800’s in France. This week, we revisit the idea of symphonic organ music, this time with organs adding to the palette of a symphony orchestra.

    As large organs became more common in new concert halls in the later 19th century, a modest repertoire of celebratory music for organ and orchestra also began to develop.
