A first encounter with the IV/79 Eccles Memorial organ in Salt Lake City’s Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Madeleine reveals an instrument of robust character that imbues Andrew Unsworth’s recital of cornerstone Franco-German works with muscular immediacy. Built by Kenneth Jones and Associates in 1992, the 4,066-pipe machine sits within bright, responsive acoustics that light up Bach’s G major Prelude & Fugue (BWV 541), accentuates the red-blooded drama of Mendelssohn’s War March of Priests and vividly frames contrasted pieces by Dupré, Duruflé, Franck, Alain, Böhm and Vierne.
