Description: Only available recording of Lemare’s four-movement, 37-minute symphony (published in 1899) which fittingly, given how much orchestral music Lemare transcribed for his own instrument, like an excellent organ transcription of a late 19th-century Germanic orchestral symphony. No higher praise, etc... David Leigh (organ of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin).
