The Genius of Aristide Cavaillé-Coll
3-DVD & 2-CD set documenting 16 organs - [FSF-Cavaille-Coll]
$99.95

The distinguished British film maker Fugue State Films has produced a high quality 3-DVD and 2-CD boxed set containing the first ever full-length documentary about the life and work of Aristide Cavaillé-Coll. The documentary is accompanied by many recordings and filmed performances of works by Franck, Saint-Saëns, Guilmant, Boëllmann, Widor and Vierne on a superb selection of Cavaillé-Coll organs – expect to see St. Sulpice, St. Ouen, St. Sernin, and more. The set includes an 80-page booklet.

The two CDs contain performances on 16 Cavaillé-Coll organs. The organs are listed in chronological order and the CDs feature compositions from the same period as each organ or music closely associated with a specific organ.

The first DVD contains three 50-minute films that make up the documentary mini-series, The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll. Gerard Brooks presents, and interview subjects include Kurt Lueders, Ronald Ebrecht, Carolyn Shuster Fournier, Pierre Pincemaille, Thomas Monnet, Olivier Latry, and Eric Lebrun. The second DVD goes into detail about the individual organs, with detailed demonstrations and at least one performance in each location. The third DVD showcases contemporary improvisations and compositions, featuring Daniel Roth, Olivier Latry, Pierre Pincemaille, Jean-Pierre Griveau, and Michel Bouvard.

All material (films, booklet, etc.) is presented in three languages: English, French, and German. Though this is not a Raven production, Raven enthusiastically supports this effort.
