As part of a series of celebrity organ recitals to mark the retirement of Southwark Cathedral's director of music Peter Wright, Olivier Latry of Notre-Dame de Paris is coming to Southwark.
The recital will be followed by a collection in aid of the appeal for the rebuilding of the fire-damaged Notre-Dame cathedral.
Established as the leading worldwide ambassador for his instrument, French organist Olivier Latry has performed in the world's most prestigious venues, been the guest of leading orchestras under renowned conductors, recorded for major labels and premiered an impressive number of works.
Named titular organist at Notre-Dame in Paris at the age of 23 and organist Emeritus at the Orchestre National de Montrwal since 2012, Olivier Latry is first and foremost an accomplished, thoughtful and adventurous musician, exploring all possible fields of the organ music, with an exceptional talent as an improviser.
