The young organist Pétur Sakari (aged just 21) has gathered five giants of the organ repertoire for his debut disc on BIS, performing on the famous organ of Saint-Étienne-du-Mont in Paris.

The five composers are all interconnected – Charles Tournemire and Louis Vierne studied together (under Franck), Maurice Duruflé studied under Tournemire and was Vierne’s assistant at Notre Dame, and Marcel Dupré counted Vierne (and Widor) among his teachers and himself taught Olivier Messiaen.
