Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Between 1899 and 1930, Vierne wrote six organ symphonies of hitherto unknown richness in timbres, mysticism and cyclical architecture. With this volume, the three-part Audite recording of the six Louis Vierne organ symphonies is complete. The St. Martin Goll organ creates unobtrusive power and fullness of sound yet remains clear. The work's polyphonic structures become distinct and the transparency of sound permits freshly considered tempi. Hans-Eberhard Roß is Director of Church Music in Memmingen.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The more fully registered passages here seem to me the more persuasive, as they effectively engage the reverberation of the room. The quieter and more lightly registered movements and sections are the ones that sound clinical to me. A good example is the opening movement of Symphony 5.
