Bernard Foccroulle (organ)
Sonia Wieder-Atherton (cello)
Yoann Tardivel (organ)
During the years in which Bernard Foccroulle was successively director of the Theatre de la Monnaie in Brussels and the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, he never ceased to devote himself to his instrument, the organ, regularly making recordings, giving numerous concerts and several premieres. The compositions on this recording range over that thirty-year cycle, from the 1991 premiere of Jonathan Harvey's in Strasbourg to that of Betsy Jolas's Musique d’autres jours, a piece combining organ with cello that was premiered in Paris in February 2021 during the Présences Festival. His collaboration with the cellist Sonia Wieder-Atherton also resulted in a new composition by Bernard Foccroulle for this organ-cello duo!
