French organist Olivier Latry is one of the most distinguished concert organists in the world today. One of three titular organists at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, he is also Professor of Organ at the Paris Conservatory of Music, and he maintains a full schedule of concert performances appearing regularly as a soloist at prestigious venues and festivals, and with leading orchestras around the world. In addition, Mr. Latry has made many acclaimed recordings and has received many prestigious awards and honorary degrees in recognition of his distinguished work in the field of organ performance and teaching. Having performed in more than fifty countries on five continents, Mr. Latry does not want to specialize in any specific repertoire, but rather wishes to explore all styles of organ music, as well as the art of improvisation.

AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE Nov/Dec 2013 (Review of the CD: “Three Centuries of Organ at Notre-Dame”) “Latry is clearly one of the brightest stars in the current organ world. His performances here are nothing less than brilliant.”
