Sample Set: St. Omer, Cavaillé-Coll 1855
Software: Hauptwerk VI
Genre: Romantic
César Franck (1822-1890), originally from Liège was one of the most famous Parisian organ masters. So no further details concerning his life.

The Fantasie in C, op. 16 is the first piece of the collection "Six pièces pour grand orgue". It was finished in 1860, so five years after the beautiful Cavaillé-Coll organ of St. Omer was finished. It consists of vour major parts:
The first part is a slow lento, wich proceeds in calm accords. Follows an Allegretto Cantabilie part which makes uses of three tonal colors: the solo melody is played using the trumpet of the recit, The Flute harmonic of the bombarde and the 8' calm foundations of positive and great organ form the third tonal color.
Follows a short quasi lento part coupling essentially all available reads to a powerfull climax.
The fourth and last part is a calm Adagio played with a registration using Voix humaine, Voix coelestis and the Gamba of the Recit.
