Der 2 choral von Franck wohl der mit sehr herber stimmung, erschloss sich durch clercs vollendete spielweise. Temperamentvoll, kräftig, lyrisch weun nöting-kaum lässt sich mit diesen adjektiven der Eindruck Beschreiden.

M. Clerc provides a model of sensivity to nuance, in phrasing, in registration, most particularly inbalance. A higly treasurable release.

I just thank the AGO for bringing in M. Clerc. For me, that was the best organ concert I’ve attended the decade. His playing was so clean and transparent. He really used the whole instrument. His music selection was played with emotions. It was some of the best soft playing I’ve ever heard and really made the big parts count

M. Clerc has total understanding of the varying musical styles of three of the featured composers. It is a joy to hear Tournemire played with the flair of Tournemire, unmistakably sensual Langlais and the dignified perfection of Dupré. This CD is recommended because of the perfect match of music and performer. This is a must-have in your collection of French organ music.
