Grand chœur dialogué

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Eugène Gigout (1844–1925) succeeded Guilmant as professor of organ at the Paris Conservatoire. His Grand chœur dialogué, which is among his best-known works, exploits the exciting contrasts available between the various departments of a large organ. This is music of a bold and strongly rhythmical character. A central section for the manuals only provides respite from the grandeur of the opening and prepares for its re-introduction at the work’s thrilling conclusion.
