Notes and Editorial Reviews

Aeolus continues its successful cooperation with the Belgian organist and titular of the Cathedral of Antwerp Peter Van de Velde and presents with this new release the complete organ works of the Walloon composer Guy Weitz (1883-1970). The album is enriched by some major organ works of the better-known Weitz contemporary Joseph Jongen (1873-1953). This double album was recorded on the organs of Antwerp Cathedral (Pierre Schyven, 1891, last recording before its restoration in 2014) and of the Laurentius Church of Antwerp (Pels & Son, 1934), a huge building mounted in the 1932 art deco style. The generous acoustics of both church spaces is more realistic through the exceptional recording techniques utilized in this project, and underlines Read more the consistently symphonic character of the works of both late romantics.
