Description: Since winning the Grand Prix de Chartres for interpretation at the 1992 Chartres International Organ Competition, and his appointment four years later as organiste titulaire at Saint-Étienne-du-Mont in Paris – where, along with the composer-organit Thierry Escaich he succeeded Maurice and Marie-Madeleine Duruflé, Vincent Warnier has secured his place as one of the leaders and most major figures in the 21st century French organ school.

He regularly performs in the prestigious concert halls and cathedrals of Lucerne, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Beijing, Berlin, Barcelona, Budapest and Lyon (where he served as organist in residence at the Auditorium Maurice Ravel from 2013 to 2015). Over the last year in Paris, he inaugurated the newly built organs of the Radio France Auditorium with the Orchestre national de France under the direction of Christoph Eschenbach and the Philharmonie of Paris with the National Orchestra of Lyon under the direction of Leonard Slatkin. Often heard on the airwaves of France Musique, Vincent Warnier participates in numerous programs such as La Tribune des critiques, Sacrées Musiques and Le Mitan des musiciens, where he shares his thoughts and musical scholarship with his listeners.

Program: will include works by Buxtehude, J. S. Bach, Boëly, Brahms, Jehan Alain and the recital will conclude with an improvisation
