Overview

This program actually represents one installment in an extended documentary series about the history of the organ as a musical instrument. Volume Three covers the first half of the Eighteenth Century, known as the "Golden Age of Organ Music"; it highlights such subtopics as the French versus German schools of organ building, and the pivotal roles of such composers as Jean-Francois Dandrieu, Johann Sebastian Bach and Louis Marchand in making this renaissance happen. Two world-renowned organists, Andre Isoir and Gustav Leonhardt, turn up for performances of the seminal works from the said era, while others including Daniel Birouste and Xavier Darasse comment on the mechanics of constructing organs.
