Olivier Latry is a virtuoso of the highest order, so it is perhaps no surprise that he holds the office of titulaire des grands orgues at France's most iconic cathedral, Notre Dame in Paris. Latry is famous for championing the music of his compatriots in performances around the world, and today's recital is no exception. The programme is dominated by French composers loved for the colour and expression in their music, and this recital is sure to explore the full range of Hereford Cathedral organ's possibilities.
