In this live recording organist Peter Van de Velde and deFilharmonie bring a unique program of symphonic organ works in which the versatility of the Belgian organ school fully reflected.

In the symphonic poem Le chasseur maudit Cesar Franck, let the best known of all three organist-composers, shows its most reckless side. Romantic organ concerto by Joseph Callaerts demonstrates the craftsmanship and sophistication of the Belgian virtuoso organ school while impressive Symphonie concertante Joseph Guy is characterized by a majestic poetry.
