The Great Organ Cavaillé-Coll


Our series of auditions d'orgue (organ recitals) will continue at Ste.Clotilde in 2014-2015. Every second Saturday of each month (october-june), there will be a recital at 5 PM on the famous Cavaillé-Coll organ, directed artistically by Olivier Penin, hte organiste titulaire. Since it was built, this organ was the home of some famous French organists-composers: César Franck, Charles Tournemire, Jean Langlais. The organ was restored and enlarged in 2005 and is now one of the biggest and best organs of the French capital. The presence of a mobile console makes it possible for listeners to see the organist playing. The entrance is free.

You can consult the programme of the concert by clicking on the organist. Then, the pdf file is opened.
