davidh Posted January 10, 2013 Share Posted January 10, 2013 Fugue State Films have done it again - another multi-media pack fully up to the standards of everything that they have done before. The set includes:- DVD1: The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll. It follows his life through 3 periods, 1811-1840, 1840-1862, and 1862-1869, in 157 minutes of video, where the history of his life is very much the history of the organs that he built and the composers that he nurtured. DVD2: The Organs of Cavaillé-Coll. 202 minutes covering 15 of his instruments. DVD3: Apres Cavaillé-Coll. 140 minutes of composed music and improvisations inspired by his instruments. CD1 and CD2. More than 70 minutes each, presenting performances on each of the instruments which appeared on DVD2. A 80-page A5 booklet with specifications of each of the instruments. The set costs £64.50 for UK buyers - see http://www.fuguestatefilms.co.uk/ for more details and a video trailer, or try youtube cavaille-coll. The company needed £80,000 to fund the making of the set, and many people subscribed in advance to make it possible. It was an excellent investment! Last year "Tempo Primo" lamented the prospect of Farnborough Abbey being included in the project. Unless I have missed something, his fears have not been realised.
