Vierne Complete Organ Symphonies, Winfried Lichtscheidel, organist
Special Price! 3-CD set - [ACD-2042]
$19.98

In a set of 3 CDs (at a special price), all six of the organ symphonies composed by Louis Vierne (1870-1937) are played by Winfried Lichtscheidel on the large, 3-manual organ built in 1999 by the firm of Gerald Woehl (b. 1940) of Marburg, Germany, for the Church of St. Martinus in Sendenhorst, Germany. The 62-rank organ was built to play French Romantic music convincingly, with characteristic stops, though it maintains a classic core and mixes French nomenclature with German. The works are played wonderfully well and very well recorded in the large acoustic of the church. The 36-page booklet includes notes in English and in German on the music, the organ, and the organist. This CD was produced in 2021 by the Ambiente CD label and imported by Raven.
