About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

When palace organist Olivier Latry plays on our large concert hall organ, it's always like New Year's Eve: somehow festive, atmospheric and a bit grand. But now it really is the last evening of the year and he has come up with a particularly fitting programme. It ranges from a well-known prelude by Bach to his own improvisations. Afterwards, the audience is invited to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and snacks in our foyers with a view of the Altmarkt.

Olivier Latry

The French organist Olivier Latry is an accomplished, thoughtful and adventurous musician who explores all possible areas of organ music and has an extraordinary talent for improvisation. He became titular organist of Notre-Dame de Paris at the age of 23 and launched his international career from there. His concerts repeatedly take him to the fantastic Eule organ in the Kulturpalast, where he will once again be the palace organist in 2024/25.
