In his organ symphonies, Charles-Marie Widor explores the orchestral possibilities of the organ and releases them from their purely liturgical function. To hear them on an instrument of Cavaillé-Coll, is always a special experience. Martin Bambauer even plays on the same organ of Saint-Sulpice in Paris, on which Widor himself played as an organist for 64 years.
