The 1st organ symphony is neo-romantic, bright and extrovert. It consists of 6 (short) movements. The 1st is a severe, moderately fast prelude with a lively joyful middle section. The 2nd movement is a fugue on the same motif. The 3rd is a moderately slow intermezzo in Lied form. The 4th movement is a very fast scherzo with a development (middle) section, using again the same motif. The 5th is a slow chorale. The 6th and final movement is fast and lively and in sonata form with a rather large coda, in which the motif returns. Registration indications are as in late French romantic organ music (Widor, Vierne) and are meant as a guide. The recording gives an indication of the sound I want.
