Description: Callaerts was a student of Lemmens, one of the founders of the "Belgian Organ School" and his concerto, unlike the better-known Jongen which has the organ always present, sometimes accompanying, sometimes as soloist, is a traditional virtuoso concerto in the tradition of Liszt, with all of the excitement and color that implies.
