About this event

The second of this year's organ recitals is given by the mercurial organist of St-Étienne-du-Mont in Paris, a composer and improviser of renown who is new to the Royal Albert Hall and its mighty instrument.

His programme contrasts chorales by Bach, Reger and Franck, recalls the spirit of Bach in his own Evocation III, and concludes with an extended improvisation in homage to Liszt.
