Organ Symphony No. 1

An organ symphony is a piece for organ solo. It is a symphonic genre, which is more similar to the organ sonata or suite. Composers, writing these organ symphonies, had treated the instrument as the symphony orchestra, by imitating the orchestral tone color, texture and symphonic process. The first organ symphonies were written in 1867 by German Wilhelm Valentin Volckmar, but soon the genre is mainly associated in French romanticism. Cesar Franck was one of the French composers, who wrote what is considered to be the first French organ symphony in his Grande Piece Symphonique. Then two other composers came along: Charles-Marie Widor, who wrote 10 organ symphonies, and his pupil Louis Vierne, who wrote six. They both had continued to cultivate the genre in that time. Unlike in tradition that symphonies should have four, five or six movements, in modern times and nowadays the composers are writing only one movement in their symphonies. In my experience I did it the same. My inspiration of writing my very first organ symphony was Charles-Marie Widor's first movement of his sixth symphony for organ solo. It expresses the triumph and heroic character, more likely it represents a person aming for victory.
