Charles-Marie Widor: Symphonie pour Orgue No. VI

Charles-Marie Widor

Symphonie pour Orgue No. VI

op. 42,2, 1876/1878


In his VIth Organ Symphony, Charles-Marie Widor showed himself to be at the height of his compositional mastery.
In the densely-worked monumental outer movements, the expressive slow movements and a dramatic, brilliant Intermezzo, Widor exploits the possibilities of the instrument to the full.
The new Carus edition is based on the last edition of 1928/29, published during the composer’s lifetime, as the authoritative source.
Corrections made subsequently by the composer have been taken into consideration.
In addition, references are included to important variant readings in earlier editions.
Editorial suggestions on the performance of individual passages complete the new edition.

...Überraschend angenehm und sehr zufriedenstellend ist - sowohl lesetechnisch als auch ästhetisch - das für Editionen des Carus-Verlags eher ungewöhnlich großzügige Notenbild ... eine Ausgabe, die sich auf jeden Fall auf für den großzügig mit gemeinfreien Noten versorgten zeitgenössischen Organisten lohnt.
