Hommage à Daniel Roth - Portrait of an Artist (Code: OP6002)

With this DVD and CD we want to honour one of the great organ personalities of our time. It is intended to document his long, versatile artistic activity as an interpreter and improviser, as university teacher and composer.


In a 45-minute interview in the „Salon Widor“, Daniel Roth talks about his life, his development and his activities. Experience Daniel Roth at home in his study at the house organ and at the piano. Accompany Daniel Roth on a trip through Paris, and hear the master on his organ in St. Sulpice playing improvisations, and pieces by J.S. Bach, C.M. Widor, and C. Saint-Sains.


For Daniel Roth, music and organ-playing are an affair of the heart! „Actually I wanted to be a pianist but my mother told me: become an organist, so that you can use your music to improve humanity“.

I came to music through Albert Schweitzer“.


That’s Daniel Roth: a musician in body and soul!


The accompanying CD has a selection of recordings of Daniel Roth at the organ of Saint-Sulpice with improvisations and music by J.S. Bach, Ch.M. Widor, C. Saint-Saensd and D. Roth.
