Misc. Comments

The Organ Symphony No. 1 is neo-romantic, bright and extravert. It consists of 6 (short) movements. The 1st one is a severe moderately fast prelude with a lively joyful middle section. The 2nd one is a fugue one the same motif. The 3rd one is a moderately slow intermezzo in Lied form. The 4th one is a very fast scherzo with a development (middle) section, using again the same motif. The 5th one is a slow choral. The 6th and final movement is fast and lively and in sonata form with a rather large coda, in which the motif returns together with the choral in a majestic apotheosis. Registration indications (based upon the Hauptwerk sound set of the Mutin / Cavaillé-Coll organ of the Notre Dame in Metz) are intended as a help and are mainly notated as in late French romantic organ music (Widor, Vierne). In 2016 I have revised the piece, checking every registration indication and every bar and I can assure now that the piece is entirely playable and that it will sound great if you follow my registration indications. The recording (digital performance in Sibelius 5 with Garritan Personal Orchestra, not Hauptwerk !) gives, besides the registration indications, a scant indication of the sound I want.
