Creation is the secret garden of the organ builder, and becausse of it, he will express his taste and his knowledge.
Unfortunately, in France there are few projects involving real innovation and creativity. We stayed for a long time in a baroque period, with a demand for classical French, German or Flemish organs. This was in opposition to the neo-classical organ, but it led to an impoverishment in organ building. In times when technical innovation permitted boldness, our profession stayed in the background.
The organs presented here are of the kind that are easy to play listen to. People who search for more complicated organs should look at the restoration of the organ of Temple Neuf in Strasbourg.
