sawyl: (A self portrait)
Via Martin Handley on R3's Sunday, the discovery that it's the 80th anniversary of Charles-Marie Widor's death. The toccata from the 5th Symphony never really gets old: the rapid semi-quaver runs that propel the piece forward with those big statements in the pedal line, the constant changes in key and the dramatic use of dynamics.

This is the same version that Handley selected: Olivier Latry playing the grand orgue de Notre Dame de Paris. Be warned, though, that the tutti, when it is finally deployed, is shockingly loud...
