Olivier Latry, Organist of Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, will perform an all-French program, including works by Marchand, Grigny, Dupré, Cochereau, Escaich, and the complete Symphonie V of Widor. The recital will take place at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24th.

Olivier Latry is one of the most celebrated and brilliant organists in the world today. His all-French program will display the full spectrum of French sonorities of Ascension’s Quoirin organ, from the resplendent Baroque trompettes and bombardes of Marchand’s Grand Dialogue in C to the rich Romantic timbres of Dupré’s opening movement of his Symphonie Passion to the thrilling modern colors of Thierry Escaich’s Evocation II. Finally, Latry will play the complete Symphonie V of Charles-Marie Widor, known throughout the world for its famous Toccata.
