Colin Harvey Posted March 27, 2008 Share Posted March 27, 2008 If you haven't bought this month's BBC Music Magazine with David Brigg's CD of Vierne 3 and Widor 5 at Saint Serin, Toulouse, it comes highly recommended!! The playing is DB's usual magasterial standard (so excellent in every respect), the organ is fantastic and the recording is superb - clear and yet dramatic. I prefer DB's performance of the Vierne to the excellent Jeremy Filsell - the recording quality is much better and it's much clearer. In addition to the 2 organ symphonies, there is an improvisation by DB on the bell chimes at St Sernin. Compositionally, it is a match for any of the movements in either of the symphonies! The only error I can spot is that, according to the CD cover notes, it was recorded on 23 & 24 of October 2008!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
