BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Thierry Escaich Composer Portrait concert / BBC National Orchestra of Wales, cond. Franck Ollu

“Such is [his music’s] energy and buoyancy that the listener is carried irresistibly in the flow. To counterbalance this apparently unstoppable force, Escaich concerns himself with structure and, in characteristically French fashion, also explores the colour and timbres of sound, with sometimes cataclysmic peaks.”

CD Organ Concerto No.1

Liège Philharmonic Orchestra, cond. Pascal Rophé with Olivier Latry / Escaich Organ Concerto No.1 (Accord)

“His concerto exploits the full sonic and colour ranges of the orchestra and organ in this thrilling three-movement work, the second rising to an awe-inspiring climax only topped by the shattering coda of the finale.”
Gramophone, September 2014
