Charles-Marie Widor was born to the organ. Raised in a family of organ-makers, he showed early talent for the instrument and would later come to embody all its might and splendour. His life heavily intertwined with that of the great French organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, this new collection of Widor’s complete organ works brings together eight years’ worth of recordings; captured across France on period Cavaillé-Coll instruments. Performed by Joseph Nolan, this celebrated cycle saw him visit St Sernin, Toulouse, St. François-de Sales, Lyon and La Madeleine, Paris.

REVIEWS:

Nolan’s combination of vivid virtuosity, towering technique and inspired interpretative intensity makes his set the current yardstick in Widor symphony recordings.

– Gramophone

Nolan transcends Widor's scores, truly reveling in the Gothic beauty of this music and the grandiose instruments of this belle époque. – Choir & Organ
