Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

After a long career as an organist Franck returned to the piano and composed the music on this disc. Ulfert Smidt transcribed and arranged this music for organ. Jean Langlais became the organist at the Basilica St. Clotilde in Paris almost 100 years after Franck. Langlais was blind since the age of 2 and developed a very special relationship with music afterwards. The pieces for harmonium and organ show the influences of Gregorian chant as well as the influence of the liturgy.
