19:00 Thierry Escaich (France)
Thierry Escaich was born in 1965 in Nogent-sur-Marne (France). He studied at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musiqueet de danse de Paris, where he has taught classes in improvisation and composition since 1992. In 1997 he became the titular organist at Paris’ Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont, succeeding Maurice Duruflé. Escaich composes in many genres and forms and his catalogue includes over 100 works, such as Chaconne for orchestra, oratorio Le Dernier Évangile and a double concerto for violin and cello, Miroir d’ombres. His first opera Claude, to a libretto by Robert Badinter after Victor Hugo’s Claude Gueux, was premiered at the Opéra de Lyon in March 2013 to great acclaim. His most recent works include a viola concerto, La Nuit des chants, for Antoine Tamestit and the organ concerto Quatre Visages du temps which received its European premiere by Escaich and the Orchestre National de Lyon in November 2017. In June 2019 the world premiere of Escaich’s Vers l’esprit for organ was performed by Henri-Franck Beaupérin at the Abbaye de Sylvanès. Thierry Escaich’s works are performed by leading orchestras in Europe and North America and by renowned musicians such as Lisa Batiashvili and François Leleux, Valery Gergiev, Paavo Järvi, Alan Gilbert, Alain Altinoglu, Louis Langrée and others.
