Improvisation - Dance suite

Composer, organist and improviser Thierry Escaich is able to combine these three profiles in a unique manner, binding them inextricably together to reflect his rich inner world. An ambassador of the great French school of improvisation, four-time recipient of the Victoires de la Musique award and 2020/21 resident organist of the Dresden Philharmonic, Escaich is equally impressive as a brilliant performer of a stylistically diversified repertoire that blends early and contemporary, folk and sacred music, or an inspired composer whose unique, highly personal style covers a broad spectrum of forms and genres.
Presented under the evocative title Mirror Dances, the evening’s programme takes us on a thrilling musical journey. Pairing the elaborate grandeur of the Baroque style with contemporary pieces, it is interspersed with the organist’s own compositions and masterful improvisations.

In Thierry Escaich's work there are no works of youth but the eternal youth of a work which is being built before our eyes with sincerity like a maturity in constant evolution.

I want to go to the end of my struggles, without worrying about wanting to be original.
