Vincent Dubois is one of the brightest young talents in the organ world. In the summer of 2006 he was given permission to record Cavaillé-Coll masterpiece at Saint-Sulpice for JAV Recordings. This CD was produced and recorded by Christoph Frommen in SACD Surround Sound. Surround Sound Recording is the ultimate in audio technology which creates extraordinary sonic definition and reproduction of the room ambiance.
Included in the 32 page booklet that accompanies the CD is an interview with Michel Goussu, the organbuilder who cares for and was part of the team that recently restored the instrument. Michel Goussu discusses fascinating details about the history, design and care of the organ at Saint-Sulpice. A photo essay of Vincent Dubois recording the Liszt, working with the 2 registrants making the crescendos and decrescendo, is also included in the CD booklet.
This disc will play on a standard CD player, but an SACD player is needed to hear it in Surround Sound. These CDs are considerablely more expensive to record, master and manufacture, this is the reason for the higher price. The the audio results are out of this world
