Kulturpalast dresden 2

Thierry Escaich takes up the position of Palastorganist (Organist-in-Residence) with the Dresden Philharmony, for the 2020/21 season. 

Already familiar to Dresden audiences after his recent recital at the Dresden Kulturpalast, Thierry Escaich will perform a solo recital on New Year’s Eve 2020.

He will appear later in the season in an unique collaboration with the Ellipsos Saxophone Quartet in a recital programme of his own improvisations and transcriptions of works from Bach to Piazzolla.

Escaich will also appear with the Dresden Philharmonic to perform his own symphonic poem for organ and orchestra, La Barque solaire and Copland’s three-movement Symphony for Organ and Orchestra ; he will also give a late-night performance of the solo organ version of Messiaen L’Ascension.
