Thierry Escaich: Evocation II

Books | Organ

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Thierry Escaich
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Born in 1965, Thierry Escaich studied in Paris where he obtained eight first prizes for Organ and Composition. His performances and works during his professional career have also received various distinctions, Evocation II being no exception.

Composed in 1996, Evocation II is very modern, exploiting tonality, rhythm, harmony, and many other elements to a virtuosic level. Esciach is a great improvisation expert and Evocation II reflects aspects of this through use of complex rhythms and developed melodies. For all advanced organists seeking to vary and expand their contemporary repertoire, Esciach's Evocation II is an exciting addition to the repertoire.

        IT is a fine Impressive wall of imaginative pulsating sound, which does require an excellent acoustic and great delicacy and accuracy to set it off.
        Otherwise in the hands of terrorists it could just cause acoustic carnage...
        It looks frankly terrifying on the page, but the form is logical.
        It presents a temptation to the organist to just "Tonk it up",
        But there are many subtleties without which you could lose the plot (and put off your listeners).
        Useful to play if in a really bad mood...
