Young star Douglas Cleveland plays the remarkable Rosales organ of Trinity Cathedral in an all-French program which includes the rarely played (and wickedly difficult) Esquisses ("Etudes") of Dupré. Also included are Franck's beautiful and tuneful Prière ("Prayer") and Vierne's brilliant Second Symphony.
This recording traces the works of female composers from Medieval times through the twentieth century. Played on the Rosales organ of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, this program includes some music never before recorded on compact disc. Featured composers include Elfrida Andree, Florence Price, Ethel Smyth, and Fanny Mendelssohn.
