César Franck Bicentennial Celebration
Organ works from St. Clotilde, Paris

St. James Cathedral Organist and Director of Music Joseph Adam continues on a year-long celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of César Franck and his magnificent contributions to the French organ repertoire. In this series of four recitals, Franck’s major works are surveyed along with major works by his most important successors at the Basilica of St. Clotilde in Paris. This third program includes Franck’s Cantabile in B Major (1878), Fantaisie in C, op. 16, and Choral III in A Minor, as well as Symphonie d’après »Media vita« (1932) by Joseph-Ermend Bonnal (1880-1944).
