Video: Virtuoso Organ Music Here is the first of what we hope will become a trend: an organ concert on video, well played with excellent visual material and stereo sound (as well as conventional sound). The incredibly virtuosic Philippe Delacour plays two fine organs: the Cavaillé-Coll at Notre-Dame in the French city of Metz, and the pivotal Haerpfer organ built in 1960 at St. Jean-Baptiste at Château-Salins. Both organs are contained in handsome 18th-century cases, and their histories are explained in three languages, including English, in the booklet which accompanies the videotape.
