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.
