Notes and Editorial Reviews

Canadian organist Vincent Boucher continues his cycle of the organ music of Charles Tournemire (1870-1939) with volume 3 devoted to Triple choral op. 4. This work is crucial to understanding and appreciating not only Tournemire’s work, but French symphonic organ music of the early 20th century. Triple choral op. 4 marked a turning point in Tournemire’s career, when he became the truly original composer that we now know.

“To undertake this recording project is to face an unsuspected and gigantic quantity of music: 253 pieces of L’Orgue mystique, the symphonies, the poems, the collections... It is also to find oneself in the presence of music that is innovative, mystical and poetic,” says Vincent Boucher.

Read more Boucher has performed extensively, both in Canada and in Europe, and most notably at the cathedrals of Chartres, Bourges, and Notre-Dame de Paris. In 2000 he won first prize in the John Robb Organ Competition. In 2002, he won the Académie de musique du Québec’s Prix d’Europe, which has not been given to an organist since 1966. In 2003 he was awarded an Opus Prize in the category Discovery of the Year. He has already made seven award-winning and highly praised recordings on the ATMA label.

R E V I E W S:

The organ music of Charles Tournemire (1870–1939) is a revelation... The Triple Choral (1910) is a key work in his journey to individuality. Organist Vincent Boucher’s performance is well paced and his expressive rubato is tasteful... Boucher employs to full advantage the magnificent Casavant organ and acoustics of the Church of St. John the Baptist in Montreal; the sound on this recording is glorious... Boucher captures the improvisational feel of Tournemire’s style in the second [selection from L'Orgue mystique] — music that is unearthly at times, seemingly in-the-moment explorations conveying striking visions... Three brief Postludes for antiphons of the Magnificat round out this deeply reflective disc.
