Soothing and thrilling at once, the transcendent organ works of J.S. Bach are some of his finest compositions. Performed by Renée Anne Louprette.
Hailed by The New York Times as “splendid,” and “one of New York’s finest organists,” Renée Anne Louprette has established an international career as organ recitalist, accompanist, conductor, and teacher. She has performed with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, Voices of Ascension, Clarion Music Society, American Symphony Orchestra, The Dessoff Choirs, New York Choral Society, Oratorio Society of New York, and Piffaro. In New York City she has appeared in Carnegie, Zankel, Avery Fisher, Alice Tully and Merkin Halls, and Miller Theatre of Columbia University.
“She presented herself as a communicative player with no shortage of imaginative ideas, withfingers fully capable of backing them up, and with feet which are not just nimble on the pedals, but every bit as expressively articulate as her fingers.” –Michael Dervan, The Irish Times
