Josef Gabriel Rheinberger dedicated his 9th Organ Sonata (composed in May 1885) to Alexandre Guilmant, the indefatigable concertizing virtuoso who had already given the first Paris performance of Rheinberger's 1st Organ Concerto (in F Major, Op. 137). with opulent harmonies, conspicuously frequent tempo changes, and chords which are a true delight when played on a Cavaillé-Coll organ, the rhapsodic "Fantasie" at the beginning of the 3rd movement certainly lives up to its name.
