A conservatory guest recital performed by organist Vincent Warnier.
Winner of the Grand Prix for performance at the 1992 Chartres International Organ Competition, Vincent Warnier is resident organist at the Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont in Paris (a post he inherited from Maurice Duruflé) and at Notre-Dame cathedral at Verdun. Until 2011 he held teaching positions at the University of Poitiers, the Lycée Racine, and the Collège Stanislas, before embarking on concert tours in Japan and across Europe. In September 2013 he began a two-season residency at the Lyon Auditorium. His career has taken him in recent years to such musical centres as Amsterdam, Lucerne, Tokyo, Paris, Berlin and Budapest. Vincent Warnier studied in Strasbourg and then at the Paris Conservatoire, and was taught by André Stricker, Daniel Roth, Michel Chapuis, Olivier Latry and Marie-Claire Alain. He completed his musicology studies at the Sorbonne by gaining the highest teaching qualification in the French system. Warnier writes weekly columns for France Musique, and has recorded for Intrada and Naxos.
