Poulenc: Organ Concerto / Nezt-seguin
London Philharmonic Orchestra; Nezet-Seguin; O'Donnell
Composed by: Poulenc; Saint-Saens
This live LPO recording from London’s Southbank Centre marks the first release featuring the newly refurbished Harrison and Harrison Royal Festival Hall organ. From the first earth-shattering chord of the Poulenc to the thrilling finale of the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony, it was clear that this is an instrument of hugely impressive proportions. Among organist James O’Donnell’s numerous awards and honors for his recordings are the Gramophone Award for ‘Record of the Year’ in 1998 for his recording of Masses by Martin and Pizzetti for Hyperion.
