Bach-Buxtehude : La Rencontre de Lübeck
L'Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal
At the age of 20, Johann Sebastian Bach walked 400 kilometres to Lubeck to hear Dietrich Buxtehude, the greatest German composer of the day, play the organ. This musical pilgrimage is the inspiration behind Vincent Boucher's latest recording. He performs organ works by Bach, the cantor of Leipzig, and Buxtehude, the great master of Lubeck, on the Beckerath Organ at the Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal.
Vincent Boucher was appointed titular organist at Saint Joseph's of Mont Royal Oratory in 2015. As Artistic Director of its concert series, he enriches the musical life of the Oratory by presenting over 50 recitals every year. He has performed extensively and internationally, notably in England, France, Germany and Austria. His recital Vincent Boucher à l'orgue was featured on the Mezzo television channel broadcasted in 40 countries. His 15 recordings have won many prizes and have garnered praise from critics around the world.
