Sapszon Season ticket / 2

The church of Notre-Dame in Paris was one of the most important sites of music history in the 12th century. Eight centuries later, what kind of music did its ancient walls inspire? Many consider Louis Vierne's mass for choir and two organs to be the pinnacle of the genre of the Romantic organ mass. Written in 1899, it was premiered a few years later by the composer and Charles-Maria Widor. In order to perform it in churches where two organs are not available, Zsigmond Szathmáry was recently commissioned to arrange the work for one. The first half of the concert features two new pieces, first a piece by Yves Castagnet (1964), appointed organist to Notre-Dame in 1988, and then a magically atmospheric Magnificat for organ and vocal soloists by Jean-Charles Gandrille (1982).
