César Franck - Prélude, Fugue et Variation Op. 18 for Harmonium and Piano

Joris Verdin, Harmonium
Arthur Schoonderwoord, piano

This is the original version of this piece which is more often heard in Franck's arrangements for organ and piano solos.  Here is the score.   I listen to it and wonder how many French film scores and a lot of the music of the Cirque de Soleil would have existed if he'd never written this.  Of course Franck didn't know that.   I could brain the producer for cutting that last note just a tiny bit short.  Show folk!
