Presentation

The presence of Marie-Claire Alain at Notre-Dame de Paris was rare: only five recitals in all. Thus, the publication of these two accounts is all the more precious. The selection brought together on this disc illustrates the French organist’s unique ability for choosing in the palette of the Notre-Dame instrument the suitable sonority for each type of piece. Aurélie Decourt
