Flor Peeters: Selected Organ Works
Peter Van de Velde (Pierre Schyven Organ of Our Lady’s Cathedral, Antwerp)
There have been rare CD recordings exclusively dedicated to the organ works by Flor Peeters in recent years. Therefore, our new SACD-release with Peter Van de Velde playing the symphonic Schyven Organ (1891) of Antwerp Cathedral, is dedicated to the grand organ works of this main protagonist of the Belgian organ tradition in the 20th Century. The symphonic Pierre Schyven organ is an ideal instrument for Flor Peeters’s large scale works. During his lifetime the composer even premiered some of his works on this organ.
Peter Van de Velde, the titular organist of the Antwerp cathedral, choose a wise program across the entire compositional works by Flor Peeters, starting with the early Symphonic Fantasy op.13 and ending with the paraphrase of Salve Regina op.123. Between the monumental works he inserts some of the beautiful Chorale preludes from op.68 to complement the program in an excellent manner.

Ave Maris Stella
Gerard Gillen performs the music of Peeters and Franck on the organ of St. Mary’s Pro Cathedral Dublin. Over the years, the Pro-Cathedral organ has become regarded as one of the finest examples in Ireland of the late nineteenth-century grand Romantic organ. Gillen is one of Ireland’s leading church and concert organists.
“As a Peeters pupil, Gerard Gillen brings a sympathetic sensitivity...The [Franck] Prelude, fugue et variation receives one of the most satisfying interpretations heard recently. The sensuous shaping of the Prelude dispels the notion of Franck as an austere pedagogue.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2010
