For example, the opening movement is 45 minutes long but consists of only nine Five Sonatinas (1994) - Andrew Violette - Ultra Violette (CD of score. In terms of large-scale organ works on religious subjects and glacial tempos, Messiaen is the most obvious comparison.
I am not in the category of listeners who usually enjoy pieces of exceptional length, Album). I feel that they almost never justify their extreme use of time. Parts of the second movement are exquisite. The extremely long finale also contains very compelling sections, with its many harmonic shifts and inexorable trajectory.

The perfect gift for the classical music enthusiasts! The music meditates on one harmony, subtly shifting accents and syntax to produce similar lines with different semantic and metric meaning.
