Charles-Marie Jean Albert Widor (21 February 1844 – 12 March 1937) was a French organist, composer and teacher, most notable for his ten organ symphonies. Widor was born in Lyon, to a family of organ builders, and initially studied music there with his father, François-Charles Widor, titular organist of Saint-François-de-Sales from 1838 to 1889.

Charles-Marie Jean Albert Widor (1844–1937) was a French organist, composer, and teacher. Widor was born on 24th February 1844 in Lyon to a family of organ-builders, and initially studied music there with his father, who was an organist himself. The French organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, reviver of the art of organ-building, was a friend of the Widor family: he arranged for the talented young organist to study in Brussels, with Jacques Lemmens for organ technique and with François-Joseph Fétis, director of the Brussels Conservatoire for composition.

THAT THE FRENCH ROMANTIC SCHOOL OF the organ owes its being to Cavaillé-Coll, a statement routinely heard, is true only in general. Unqualified, it misleads on three counts. First, two schools, not one, emerged in France in the nineteenth century: an earlier school, headed by Saint-Saëns and Franck, and a later, headed by Guilmant and Widor. Even if Saint-Saëns’s earliest organ works had not preceded Franck’s-a first Fantasy and the Bénédiction Nuptiale antedate theSix Piècesby a handful of years-his predilection would place the younger man at the beginning of our survey Save. 4 Charles-Marie Widor.

By Charles-Marie Widor. Charles-Marie Jean Albert Widor (February 21, 1844 - March 12, 1937) was a French organist, composer and teacher, and was at the forefront of a revival in French organ music in the late 1800's.

Charles-Marie Jean Albert Widor (February 21, 1844 ? March 12, 1937) was a French organist, composer and teacher. The French organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, reviver of the art of organ building, was a friend of the Widor family: he arranged for the talented young organist to study in Brussels, with Jacques-Nicolas Lemmens for organ technique and with François-Joseph Fétis, director of the Brussels Conservatoire for composition. In 1870, with the combined lobbying of Cavaillé-Coll, Charles Gounod and Camille Saint-Saëns, the 24-year-old Widor was appointed as organist of Saint-Sulpice in Paris, the most prominent position for a French organist.

Michael Murray fills out the remainder of the disc with French organ pieces. The organ and recording are both superb. If you love organ music, you won't want to leave the disc after just the Organ Symphony. This is probably the most impressive SACD disc I have heard.
