Daniel Roth has held several prestigious positions as both performer and teacher. His teachers at the Paris Conservatory included Marie-Claire Alain and Maurice Durufle. At the age of 20, Roth made his debut at the organ of the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur in Montmartre-Paris, as assistant to his teacher, Rolande Falcinelli. He later succeeded her as titular organist, a post he held until 1985. That year he was appointed titular organist at St-Sulpice. He has won several competitions, among them the Grand Prix de Chartres 1971 for interpretation and improvisation.

After holding teaching positions in Marseille, Strasbourg and Saarbrucken, Roth is currently Professor of Organ at the Musikhochschule in Frankfurt am Main. He has also been Artist-in-Residence at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and chairman of the organ department at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. For his many compositions he has received the Florent Schmitt prize awarded by the Academie des Beaux-Arts (Institut de France). He is also well known for his brilliant improvisations.

Roth holds the titles of Chevalier de la Legion d Honneur, Officier des Arts et Lettres and Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Organists (London). In 2006 he received the Prize of European sacred music from the Schwebisch Gmend Festival (Germany).

His recordings have been carried by Erato, Philips, Aeolus, Arion, Pathe-Marconi EMI, Motette, JAV, Prioy, and Wergo (Schott).
