Misc. Comments

The Symphonie Dorienne (Organ Symphony No.3) is a modern-classical composition and is a rather intimate and contemplative work. It consists of four movements. The 1st one is a solemn and moderately fast prelude based on one fluent lasting theme. The 2nd one is a fast "gargoylesque" scherzo with a singing pastoral middle section. The 3rd one is a slow and rather sad movement in sonata form with two contrasting themes (the singing main theme and one chorale-like). The 4th and final movement is characterised by the alternation of a slow and solemn episode and a fast twinkling toccata-like theme, that are both further developed. 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.
