Label: Erato - • Format: 2x, CD • Country: Europe • Genre: Classical • Style: Romantic Franck*, Marie-Claire Alain – Great Organ Works = Grandes Œuvres Pour Orgue /5(2). Here Alain executes "ad libitum" in an organ which technically speaking is not exactly what Franck had in mind; however, Alain's organ has beautiful tonalities in the reed stops. In her expert hands (and feet) this organ becomes a very special instrument and she has no difficulty in obtaining all those psycho-acoustic effects Franck envisioned originally/5(10). Marie-Claire Alain's newest recording of Cesar Franck's works for organ is the one by which all others should be compared. We are treated to some of her very best playing very free and imaginative, and exceedingly interesting. As usual, Mme. Alain has included insightful program and performance notes.5/5(7).
A conversation between Marie-Claire Alain and producer Michel Garcin Marie-Claire Alain, one of the supreme organists of the 20th century, grew up in a distinguished musical family that was obsessed with Bach. He duly proved a determining force in her life and she made no fewer than three complete recordings of his mighty catalogue of organ ciszalarbieweivenoteleningtorlo.xyzinfo: Marie-Claire Alain. Label: Erato - • Format: 14x, CD Reissue Box Set Compilation Slipcase • Country: Germany • Genre: Classical • Style: Baroque Bach* / Marie-Claire Alain - Complete Works For Organ = L'Œuvre Pour Orgue (, CD) | Discogs. I bought this CD as an import. Thought it was a bit pricey at the time - but you are getting Marie Claire Alain and it is one of the best recordings of these works. Then realised that it is a double CD and some of the stuff on the second disc is really mind blowing. Just wish that I had been able to buy it at today's much lower price/5(9). Spanning four centuries of music, from Baroque masterpieces by the likes of Couperin and Grigny, through cornerstones of the French organ repertoire by Widor, Vierne and Messiaen, to two discs of works by her brother Jehan, this collection is testament to her vast and impressively wide-ranging recording legacy. This is a highly authoritative release not just in terms of playing but also in Alain's accompanying notes. The Caen organ is a particularly fine specimen of a Cavaillé-Coll, dating from – 25 years after the St Clotilde organ for which Franck wrote much of this music. The recording captures it, and the church's atmosphere, effectively.
