About

Leonard Slatkin pays tribute to the sumptuous organ of the Lyon Auditorium with this 100% French music concert!

Built in 1878 by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll at the Palais du Trocadéro, the organ of the Maurice-Ravel Auditorium was acquired by the city of Lyon in 1977. Made up of 82 stops and 6,508 pipes, it is one of the most beautiful French organs. From April to November 2013, a team of specialists led by Michel Gaillard from the Manufacture Aubertin worked on its restoration. The meticulous work they made turned the hundred year-old organ into a powerful instrument with a perfect tone.
