Recording the ‘18’ as a début CD is an ambitious project, but Louprette has chosen a fine organ, surely regarded as an historic instrument by now. Her registrations sound beautiful, and there is a well-schooled musicality in her playing that encourages contemplation and stillness. However, in some pieces the reverent character leads to tempi that are laid back, although this is a subjective interpretational quibble. Louprette seems to be playing to the spacious building rather than to my study, and there should be a difference in approach to playing in large empty buildings and making recordings for the domestic market.
