Notes and Editorial Reviews

The oeuvre of Joseph Jongen, born in 1873, carries quantitative weight with its more than four hundred works. However, since his music is relatively little known, it often ends up being compared with works of more famous composers. The three works on this release concentrate on the organ, the orchestra and the interaction between the organ and orchestra.

 Magnificient recording October 27, 2016 By Guy Sauvé See All My Reviews "I strongly recommend this cd. Both orchestra and organ resound splendidly. All three works are from his mature period and demonstrate masterful command of both orchestration and organ registration. CPO has accomplished here an excellent sound engineering which gives full bloom of both timbral subtilities and density of the forces engaged." Report Abuse
