Product Description

Four disc set (2 DVDs and 2 CDs) with 88 page booklet

This boxed set provides a complete portrait of the great composer. The centerpiece is a magnificent three-part documentary showing how Widor came to write his organ symphonies, how his compositional style developed and matured, and how these works fit into his overall career as a performer, teacher and writer. Presented by Gerald Brooks and featuring interviews with Widor scholars Daniel Roth, John Near and Anne-Isabelle de Parcevaux, this film also sets Widor's organ music in the context of his work as a mainstream composer of operas, ballets, chamber music and orchestral symphonies.
