The concertist’s perfect knowledge of the particular qualities of the Hispanic organ, the lightness, brilliance, sensitivity and touch of humor of his perfectly mastered playing convinced listeners that Villeneuve possesses… a true concert instrument. ” (La Dépêche) The passion for the organ that he has cultivated since childhood indeed nourishes his interpretation which owes its effectiveness to the attention he pays to the registrations studied to make maximum use of the qualities of each instrument.
