Music Director Christoph Eschenbach leads the Philadelphia Orchestra through a programme featuring organ and orchestra, with one of the world's finest virtuosos, Olivier Latry, resident organist at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris.

These are recordings made at the inaugural concerts of the new pipe organ at Philadelphia's Kimmel Center in May 2006. The new instrument is the largest pipe organ of any concert hall in the United States, and combined with the legendary sound of the glorious Philadelphians, it provides a thrilling sound demonstration on SACD. The press qualified these performances as electrifying:
"one of the great performances in Eschenbach's music-director tenure …If this performance is well-captured on disc, it will be a case of lightning in a bottle." Philadelphia Inquirer
Penguin Guide 4 stars Radio 3 Building a Library First Choice
