Synopsis

Product Description
This program of heroic music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Dupré, Brewer, Stanford, Dubois and Jongen, and from the high baroque by Telemann, featuring the Aeolian / Mander organ of the landmark Princeton University Chapel is a sonic spectacular that sounds great in stereo on standard CD players, and even better in DSD (Direct Stream Digital) Stereo and 5.1 DSD Surround Sound on SACD surround players. Princeton University Organist Eric Plutz gives a remarkable performance throughout this disc. The Washington Symphonic Brass are featured in track 3 in a critically-acclaimed performance of Marcel Dupre's Poeme Heroique. Later in the program, Phil Snededor of the Washington Symphonic Brass is spotlighted in 2 short works by Telemann (tracks 7 and 8) with Eric Plutz playing a small continuo organ, and Alistair MacRae on violoncello. Total program time 74 minutes.

Musique Heroique: Top Notch
Paul Van de Water | Virginia, USA | 02/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This program comprises six organ works with the word "heroique" or "eroica" in their title. (Amazon garbles the accented French title of the disc.) They are performed on the Princeton University Chapel organ: built by Skinner in 1928, modified by Aeolian-Skinner in the 1950s, and renovated by Mander in 1991. The SACD sound is glorious, and the performances by Princeton University organist Eric Plutz are first rate. The longest piece on the disc, Stanford's three-movement Sonata Eroica, is a brilliant tribute to Charles Marie Widor and the French, composed during World War I.
