For centuries organ and trumpet have lived in a perfect harmony. In the past they were an ideal instrumental duo for presenting sacred reflections in the church, celebrating divine perfection and transcendental heights. Today they work together also on concert stage. However, it is not only original works that come into being; this pair of distinctive instruments lures many musicians to witty arrangements as well.
The composer and organist Thierry Escaich is a skillful improviser. At concerts he uses these skills in a combination with his own compositions. His frequent onstage partner is Romain Leleu, one of the most remarkable young European trumpeters.
