    Dupré - Deux Esquisses

    So a year or so ago my organ teacher gave a recital here at my school and he closed his program with Dupré's Deux Esquisses (Two Sketches). I absolutely loved them and had never heard them before. They quickly moved right to the top of my goal list. Anyway they don't seem to be well known and it seems that just the other day someone on YouTube posted a recording of him playing them in concert and I wanted to share it with you all here because they are two of my all time favorite pieces!

    Also, if you're interested he just released a new CD from the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC and the Sketches are on there!

    Yes I saw the video when it was posted! Already got my copy of the CD too! He gave me a copy the day it was released. =D Some really really great rep on there and of course the organ and the cathedral are magnificent.
