Voyages is the first album to be recorded on the spectacular new organ of the Paris Philharmonie. Comprising Voyages of 11 famous pieces – ranging from Bach to Khachaturian by way of Mendelssohn, Chopin, Liszt, Wagner, Saint-Saëns, Rimsky-Korsakov, Fauré, Debussy and Falla – it showcases both the ‘symphonic’ capacities of the new organ and the phenomenal artistry of leading French organist Olivier Latry. Paris’s magnificent new concert hall, the Philharmonie, opened in January 2015, but its monumental organ – which has over 6000 pipes and 91 different stops and weighs more than 25 tonnes – was not inaugurated until early 2016. This album, Voyages, comprising famous short pieces transcribed for organ, is the first to be recorded on the instrument.
