Louis Vierne is regarded as one of the greatest late romantic composers of organ music. His work comprises an essential contribution to the genre of the French organ symphony. With Symphonies No. 3 and No. 5 Carus has launched a recording of the complete organ works of Vierne on the new Kern organ in the Dresden Frauenkirche. Samuel Kummer, the resident organist in the Frauenkirche, exploits the resources and sonorous possibilities of the organ so that the majestic sound of the music unfolds magnificently in the outstanding acoustic of this great church. This new SACD offers unlimited enjoyment not only for organ music afficiandos.
