According to The Diapason, Stephen Tharp is the best organist in America. Experience his “colourful, driving and brilliant” (The New York Times) playing in this recital dedicated to the ancient and contemporary masters of the organ. Stephen Tharp covers here more than 300 years of organ music and focuses on French music. But Johann Sebastian Bach, the father of all organists, cannot be missed. Stephen Tharp proves that the organ is still relevant today by playing a contemporary work by his compatriot George Baker, who is very attached to the French organ culture.
