Composer's note

The Organ Symphony No. 4 is a modern-classical (i.e. neo-romantic, with impressionist influences) composition, consisting of four movements. The 1st one is a solemn and moderately fast prelude, based on two themes. The 2nd one is a fast, tense and vigorous scherzo with a lovely singing middle section. The 3rd one is a slow movement in which the singing main theme is alternated with two other themes, the second one a kind of lullaby. The 4th and final movement is solemn and fast and in sonata form, and characterised by a main theme with a running bass. 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 notated as in late French romantic organ music (Widor, Vierne). The recording (digital performance in Sibelius 5.1 with Garritan Personal Orchestra, not Hauptwerk) gives, besides the registration indications an indication of the sound I want.
