Notes & Reviews:

The Twelve Pieces for Organ of Cesar Franck is a definitive collection of the composer's works for organ, performed by the Montreal-based organist and composer Pierre Grandmaison, himself a protege of Maurice Durufle. Franck's extraordinary compositions revolutionized the organ repertoire and laid the foundations for future composers, including Widor, Vierne, Tournemire and Dupre. These works were recorded in Montreal's Notre-Dame Basilica on the magnificent Casavant organ, which has been played by all the great 20th-century French organists. The Notre-Dame instrument was the first 4-manual (81 stops) Casavant organ, and the largest in the country at the time of its installation in 1891.
