Good News from Paris #1637
…selections from the inaugural concerts on the new Grenzing pipe organ in the Radio France Auditorium.
This remarkable instrument (4 manuals, 87 stops), commissioned in 2009 and visited by the PIPEDREAMS tour group while under construction at the Grenzing shop in 2010, was completed and installed in 2015 only after considerable delays in the completion of the hall itself. Presented to the public to great acclaim May 7-9, 2016, these inaugural concerts were made available for American broadcast by EuroRadio in conjunction with Radio France.
