After the celebrations of a double inauguration (of the organ in the Henry Le Bœuf Halll and of the new music season), Olivier Latry comes back for a treat in the form of a recital. With “The Musical Testament”, this exceptional organist and improviser wishes to show audiences how strongly the musical heritage of the great Bach – and more particularly the choir and organ arrangement – has resounded through musical history, especially among romantic composers like Brahms and Franck. Music which comes into its own on the new organ in the Henry Le Bœuf Hall.
