Organist, composer, author, critic, teacher – Widor, Charles-Marie 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. On their latest release the musical discoverers of the Trio Parnassus introduce us to the superb quality of his chamber music, which today is almost entirely forgotten.
“One senses that the well prepared players have a natural empathy for Widor’s writing. Their high quality playing is especially spirited and expressive.” Music Web
