Overview

This box set of four documentaries provides a comprehensive examination of the organ as a musical instrument over the centuries. First on the bill is Latin Origins, which discusses the device's inception, in Bartolomeo Formentelli's workshop in Verona, Italy, and its gradual spread through Spain, France, and Italy; subtopics include the Golden Age of the organ in Sixteenth Century Spain, the French style of the organ in the Eighteenth Century, and the classicist style popular in Italy. The second documentary, From Sweelinck to Bach, moves ahead into the 17th and 18th Centuries, and looks at the development of the instrument during that 200-year period, with examinations of composers who made the organ a cornerstone of their work, such as J.S. Bach and Jan Pieterszoon Sweelink. The third film in the set, The Golden Age, moves into the first half of the Eighteenth Century, known as "The Golden Age of Organ Music"; it explains the fundamentals of the German and French schools, and touches on the works of composers including Louis Marchand and Jean-François Dandrieu. Finally, part four, The Modern Age, examines the organ's evolution from the early nineteenth century through the present day, with trips to Switzerland and France and the discussion of organ composers including Olivier Messiaen, Max Reger and Charles-Marie Widor.
