A few words about the program

His program includes masterworks by Johan Sebastian Bach, Sergei Rachmaninov, and jazz improvisations inspired by Art Tatum. “My interest for the organ came relatively late – at the age of 16 – with composers like Bach and Rachmaninov,” comments Chriss. “But it was Tatum that got me thinking seriously about music. He is a big inspiration.”
