Thierry Escaich, organ
Emmanuelle Delpech-Ramey, director Gilles Boustani, video designer
Admired by The Diapason as 'an improviser of genius,' international organist Escaich is renowned for his concert work as well as his brilliant compositions. Escaich and acclaimed director Delpech-Ramey musically and theatrically re-create Paris from 1910 to 1920, aided by Boustani's inventive projections of historic images and dreamlike re-imaginings of the city of lights. A man and a woman, played by two silent actors, poignantly transport audiences back to a Paris embodied by decadence and eroticism, by artistic daring and the devastations of war.
"Escaich's performance was so thrilling that the audience leaped up to applaud at the end."—Cleveland Plain Dealer
