George C. Baker performs works of his teacher at St.-Sernin de Toulouse With obvious admiration for the great variety of moods, themes and colors found in the works of Langlais, George Baker records works “from simple to complex, from softest to loudest, from slow to fast, from monophonic to homophonic to polyphonic,” including two less well-known works Langlais dedicated to Baker. The 1889 Cavaillé-Coll organ at St.-Sernin was a favorite of the composer and was carefully chosen by Baker as the venue for this recording. Even though the recording sessions had to deal with carousing students and noisy skateboarders outside the church, the fine result shows Baker’s dedication to his teacher’s work.
