Olivier Latry (organ)

Celebrated French organist Olivier Latry returns to the Proms for the first time in over a decade for a programme centred around transcriptions and arrangements for the ‘King of Instruments’. The organist of Paris’s Notre-Dame Cathedral roams through 250 years of music in a wide-ranging recital programme that stretches from Bach to Falla. There’s a rhythmic charge to the recital, which includes virtuosic transcriptions of Khachaturian’s frenzied Sabre Dance, Falla’s hypnotic Ritual Fire Dance and Saint-Saëns’s devilish Danse macabre, as well as Bach’s dramatic Toccata and Fugue in D minor, and Bach arrangements by French organist-composers Widor and Gigout.
