Escaich - tanz-Fantasie avec E. Aubier 




Thierry Escaich (organ), Éric Aubier (trumpet) - Recorded at Saint-Étienne-du-Mont Church (Paris). 

This piece was originally written in 1997 for the final of the Markneukirchen International Trumpet Competition in Germany, in a version for piano and trumpet, then transcribed in 2000, for organ and trumpet. Again we find a dance with constantly irregular and constantly changing metrics, based on the alternation of a motive in repeated notes and a more lyrical melodic phrase. The dance is preceded by an introduction in the form of a questioning, in which the thematic material arises from short sequences punctuated with rests.
