The recital ends with the formidable Fantaisie pour orgue-Aeolian, a work which makes extraordinary technical demands on the organist - in fact the composer himself wrote that it was Ďunplayable by the fingers and feetí. This led to the work being condemned to obscurity and it was as recently as 1988 that it was reconstructed and published for the first time. Andrew-John Smithís performance defies this edict, and the translation of the original registration to the organ of La Madeleine is a feat of ingenuity.
Played on the Organ of La Madeleine, Paris.
