Notes & Reviews:

In October 2011, American organist Christian Lane won 1st Prize at the 2nd Canadian International Organ Competition (CIOC) held in Montreal. On this new recording, Mr. Lane embraces a wide sample of music, with the magnificent Casavant organ Op. 869 at des Saints-Anges Gardiens Church in Lachine (Montreal) as his inspiration and focus. Christian Lane is one of America's most accomplished young organists. Consistently acclaimed for his "driving energy and mature interpretation (The American Organist)," he holds a Bachelor's degree and the Sacred Music Diploma from the Eastman School of Music. Subsequently, he completed graduate work as a Robert Baker Scholar at Yale University, earning a Master's degree from the Yale School of Music and a certificate from Yale's Institute of Sacred Music.

Reviews

Prizewinner Lane promotes CIOC excellence with panache, verve
The Canadian International Organ Competition 2011, won by Christian Lane, carries as a benefit the production of a CD to broadcast the talent and instruments now available. Mr. Lane wastes no time in illustrating his prize-winning skills with a stunning recital on the Orgue Casavant op.869 in the Church of Saints-Anges Gardiens, Lachine, Montreal. Nineteenth and Twentieth century composers shine once again via the mastery of this rising star of the organ world.


The recital program is jump-started with Elgar’s Imperial March, and not a breath is taken until the conclusion of Vierne’s Carillon. Each composition is beautifully suited to the very French-quality sound of the 2006-refurbished Casavant organ. Variety in the program selection illustrates technique, religious contemplation, regal celebration, and fantasy. The lovely and clever stop combinations shine through the pieces as elegant texture and provocative spirit. Mr. Lane also wrote the helpful notes for the booklet.


This recording promotes the CIOC festival and invites talent from worldwide competitors, showcasing the instruments and compositions to be appreciated in this genre. The earnest organ student, manuscript scholar, traveler, and music lover will want to acquire a copy of this CD, and travel to Canada to partake of its cultural banquet. Mr. Lane’s career as recitalist, teacher, scholar, and organ star has just been launched, providing a stellar example for others to emulate and appreciate.
