Olivier Latry, titular organist of the Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral and one of the most important concert organists in the world, will deal extensively with Johannes Brahms in Heidelberg. He bridges the gap from the latter's Prelude and Fugue in G minor, written in 1857 in connection with organ and counterpoint studies, to the masterful Choral Preludes op. 122, with which Brahms finally ended his creative work in 1896. Latry at the same time makes cross-references to corresponding works by the baroque master Bach and the French modern classic Marcel Dupré. A great improvisation on themes by Brahms rounds out this enlightening concert on the Kuhn organs of the Jesuit Church.
