Widor epitomizes French organ music of the 19th century. He quickly made a name for himself as a composer, and his 10 symphonies for solo organ are regarded today as the best of the virtuosic French school. Vol. 2 brings together the Organ Symphony op.69 with orchestra and the Symphony for Solo Organ No. 7 op. 42, 3 interpreted by Schmitt, who is a most distinguished German organist of the younger generation.  Widor himself quite often termed his op. 69 a “grand concerto for organ.” 
 
 

"" A second CD from this soloist/orchestra comination confirms Widor as one of the ’greats’ in Frenchlater romantic music. The third Symphony for organ and orchestra has Saint-Saens hovering in the background and certainly parallels the latter’s Third, with grand climaxes, gorgeous melodies and lush orchestral textures. The towering and technically difficult Seventh Organ Symphony is given a brilliantly electrifying performance on the marvellous Rouen organ, with the 5-secon acoustics captured magically." *****
