Premiere solo recording — The Julia Irene Kauffman Organ, Casavant Freres Op. 3875, 2011

This program of French masterworks was designed to showcase all the colors and nuances of this outstanding new instrument. It includes the world premiere recording of an important piece by beloved composer Florent Schmitt: Prière (Prelude in G minor), Op.11 (1899). These sonic riches were captured in three-dimensional, high-resolution sound by Reference Recordings' own chief engineer and technical director "Prof." Keith Johnson. HDCD, or High Definition Compatible Digital, provides fuller, richer sound while remaining fully compatible with conventional CD players.
