* Marcel Dupré Cortège et Litanie for Organ and Orchestra op. 19/2
* Francis Poulenc Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani in g minor
* Franz Schmidt Symphony No. 2 in E-flat major

Classical Music Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani brought audiences to their feet right from its premiere in 1939: a powerful and bombastic work that nonetheless breathes with delicacy. The British organ virtuoso Wayne Marshall stages it alongside ‘Cortège et Litanie’, one of the most popular works by Poulenc-contemporary Marcel Dupré. The Tonkunstler Orchestra devotes the second half, led by Wayne Marshall, to the composer Franz Schmidt, who’s Symphony No. 2 combines classical form with modern tonality.
