Notes and Editorial Reviews

Organist, composer, author, critic, teacher - Charles-Marie Widor was a man of many talents and extremely successful in all of these endeavors throughout his life. His organ works, especially the magnificently virtuosic toccata from the fifth sonata continue to enjoy the greatest popularity.
