Widor's thrilling Organ Symphony No. 5, with its famous final-movement Toccata, offers sprawling, extrovert drama, a mood it shares with prize-winning French composer-organist Thierry Escaich's exuberant Ã‰vocations, with their nods to Baroque and Renaissance music.
Works by Franck and Bach's great G major Fantasia, with its 'wonderful variations and foreign tones', complete the programme given on the Royal Albert Hall's famous 'Father' Willis organ.
Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.
