Francis Poulenc
Concerto for Organ, Strings & Timpani in G minor

n the 250 years since the death of Handel, the Organ Concerto of Francis Poulene is the only work of its kind which has established a place in the standard concert repertoire.   This is an extraordinary situation in itself, and it becomes even more extraordinary on closer inspection, for this was an uncharacteristic work composed for an unexpected medium by the most unlikely composer.

Recorded in association with David Bowerman at St Augustine's Chapel, Tonbridge School, in October 2000 and July 2001, by kind permission of the school authorities.
Produced by William M Robson
Engineered by Philip Hobbs, Calum Malcolm, Andrew Hallifax
Post-production by Ben Turner at Finesplice
Original artwork by Toulouse-Lautrec “Jane Avril”, 1899 - courtesy AKG London.
