This recording offers a new perspective for listening to the twelve pieces for organ by César Franck. The approach taken by the three performers Joris Verdin, Cindy Castillo and Bart Verheyen was to conform as closely as possible to the time and the circumstances in which the pieces played here were composed. They have limited themselves to assimilating and then to applying as far as possible the source material of that period, which at the same time presupposes turning a deaf ear to everything that has been said and written since Franck's death. Compiling the present program offered the opportunity to produce two discs with a carefully considered choice of both program and instrument, a choice which does not necessarily correspond to the usual sequencing of Franck's oeuvre. Here we present two symphonic organs with very different colors and in very different acoustics, played by different personalities who have one important thing in common: their fascination with Franck.
