Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ben van Oosten numbers among today's best-known organ virtuosos. His complete recordings of the organ works of Marcel Dupré, Louis Vierne, and Charles-Marie Widor are nothing short of legendary. It is thus not surprising that his invitation for a portrait of the grand Stahlhuth/Jann organ in Luxembourg's Dude-lange resulted in a "Festival of French Organ Music." This full CD program extending over almost eighty minutes captures a fascinating performance on a his-torical instrument of supreme tonal beauty.
