Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

In 1899, Charles Mutin built an organ especially for Alexandre Guilmant. The composer had to wait until he was 62 before being able to have his own private performing room with a 28-stop organ. His private concerts continued until his passing in 1911. Participants in his concerts included Marcel Dupre, and around 1925, Dupre fulfilled his dream of living near Paris, only a few steps from Guilmant's house. As fate would have it, the current resident of Guilmant's house were moving, and the organ was up for sale. After purchasing the organ, Dupre continued the tradition begun by Guilman. The organ heard on this reissue by the late Francoise Renet, is essentially the same organ first installed in Alexandre Guilmant's home more than 100 years ago.
