Organ Recital With Eric Plutz

University Organist at Princeton University, Eric Plutz has appeared at distinguished venues throughout the United States and in Europe. A review of one of his solo recordings exclaimed, "Plutz is a master craftsman . . . his performances are sensitive, emotional, stunningly accurate, and spectacularly musical . . . truly a world-class performance by a world-class musician" (The Diapason). To celebrate the sesquicentennial of Louis Vierne's birth, Plutz will present all six of the composer's symphonies on the Aeolian organ in a pair of recitals. This rare two-part event in Duke Chapel is not to be missed.
