Torvald Torén - organ
This album contains parts of three live concerts by Swedish organist Torvald Torén. He performs organ works by the greatest organ composer of the 20th century, Marcel Dupré. The recordings are made on three famous organs in Sweden: The Linköping Cathedral (5 Antiphones) 1987, S:t Jacob's Church in Stockholm (Symphonie-Passion) 1977 and the Lund Cathedral (Évocation) 1986. Torvald Torén spent a great part of his career on French organ music, which also gained him international praise.
Rolande Falcinelli, the successor of Marcel Dupré at the Paris Conservatory, remembers Torvald Torén: "Similarly to Marcel Dupré appointing me as his primary interpreter, I think Torvald Torén is a natural successor to this legacy, with his magnificent technique and sense of style."
