Composer: Gigout, Eugène
Sample Producer: Milan Digital Audio
Sample Set: Notre Dame de Metz Mutin/Cavaillé-Coll
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Romantic
From: »Dix Pièces«.

A very, very important organ piece of the French romantic periode and perhaps Gigout‘s best organ composition in my opinion:

- an intelectual use of the elements from the opening pedal-solo over the whole piece,
- a visional introducing of the Choral,
- a dramatic development.
- a very special hommage à J. S. Bach.

You know the Leduc-serie »Musica Sacra« from Leduc with »Dix or Douze Pièces pour Grand Orgue ou Piano Pédalier« of Boellmann, Dubois, Gigout, Lemaigre, Rousseau, Salomé and other. Nearly everybody of these composers showed with Nr. 1 or Nr. 1 & Nr. 2 of these books his relationship to J. S. Bach. It was mostly Prélude et Fugue; so also Gigout with his Introduction and Thème Fugué from »Six Pièces«. It is very unusual to compose here a piece with a theme simular to the Bach‘s Violoncello-Suites, with a fictive Bach-Choral and with a symphonic development.
