CD Les Nuits hallucinées

Les Nuits hallucinées / Orchestre national de Lyon, dir. Jun Märkl (Accord/Universal)

La Barque solaire with organ is an exhilarating race for organ and orchestra, in which the organ, played by the composer himself, melts into the symphonic material to pulse and beat with the flow of the music…the entire symphonic poem with organ weaves its own path, brought inevitably by its necessary interior: a strength which the writing conveys as a strong and impressive wildness, until its final explosion which resounds like a triumphal note.”

“This is surely this year’s most significant contemporary music release…In listening to these three new works, each as successful as the other, one can recognise the essential qualities of Escaich’s music; the originality of his harmonies, the richness of his orchestration and an unerring understanding of shape.”
