    César Franck – Prelude, Fugue et Variation, Op. 18

    Hi there everyone,

    I owe this to my Br.CD :-)

    He told me and insisted long ago to try Franck.... and he was right 100%
    This is the first time I try Franck and I'm soooo addicted to this piece...
    It keeps sounding in my head for weeks during and after recording.
    I can't get it of my mind....
    So powerful music !

    Here's my trial :

    http://organ.etcetera.cc/major-i-ame...music-samples/

    Scroll down page to find the piece.
    I was with the beta team on this new ACO and decided for a go...
    Posted here as organ music and not as a sampled organ set demo :-)

    Hope you like and I dedicate it to Corno Dolce !

    Hi Panos

    Wonderful performance ... enjoyed listening to this Franck piece. I have played it in concerts over the years, and won an organ competition playing the entire piece from memory in 1966. Out of all the works of Franck, this one ranks one of my most favorites, not only to listen to, but to play as well.

    Keep up all the great work!

    Lars

    PS. Still have and listen from time to time your performance on Bux Passacaglia... sooo beautiful playing.... I keep it as main reference of this work.
