As with Volume 1, this disc provides a rare opportunity to hear Saint-SaŽnsís organ works played on the very instrument for which they were composed - the magnificent Cavaillť-Coll at La Madeleine, Paris.
The art of improvisation was essential for French organists and huge importance was placed on the development of this skill. Saint-SaŽns was renowned for his extraordinary organ improvisations and it was said that Ďhis genius was of an indescribable splendourí. In committing these extensive improvisations to paper, he offers an insight into his instinctive musical logic and dazzling virtuosity.
The Preludes and Fugues bear witness to the composerís improvisatory flare and demonstrate the extent of his vastly imaginative compositional skills.
