Xaver Varnus has played concerts on the most significant organs in the world, including the ones in Bach's Thomaskirche in Leipzig, Washington National Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, Berlin Cathedral and the chief churches of Paris - Notre-Dame, Saint-Sulpice and Saint-Eustache. He has also played on the largest working instrument in the world: the Wanamaker organ in Philadelphia. In May 2006, he was one of the foursome to inaugurate Müpa Budapest's organ. As an organist, writer and media personality alike, he has done a great deal to popularise organ music.
A total of six million tickets have been sold for the three thousand concerts he has given over the course of his career so far, and he has released 53 records, 65 concert films and five books. His YouTube recordings have been viewed 17 million times - with his 2013 concert at Berlin Cathedral, where he recorded Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, alone attracting more than five million viewers. His 2007 quadruple platinum record From Ravel to Vangelis, released by Sony and recorded on Müpa Bu...dapest's organ, has sold more copies than any other album of organ music in history. 'Varnus is an incredible talent, just as original and exciting in every sense as Glenn Gould was,' wrote the music critic from Canadian national daily The Globe and Mail. Varnus has split his time between Canada and Europe since he was a teenager.
