Edouard Batiste (1820-1876) was the organist of St-Eustache in Paris and was much praised then.
This elevation is, IMHO, a very strange and frustrating piece : you don't know where you are : Chopin, Lefébure, Meyerbeer, Castafiore, Opéra Comique, but hardly at church ???? I couldn't find any "natural tempo", with always the temptation to to go twice slower or twice faster. I'd give a good deal of euros to know how the Old Man played it !
But I like it :-) Nevertheless, I didn't follow completely Batiste's instructions about :
- tremblant
- and permanent open-shut of swell-box. I tried, but this made me seasick as surely as a winter storm in the Biscaye bay.
So, by no means an "historically informed" nor faithfulrendition !
Nevertheless again, the fine Aix's Ducroquet-Cavaillé seemed quite in the same "sound league" as I imagine (by pure mind wandering) the Daublaine-Callinet-Barker played by Batiste.
