As a true mirror of a vocation, the pianistic creation of César Franck, Camille Saint-Saens and Thierry Escaich reflects the aspirations of a tradition of composers having counted among the greatest organists and improvisers of their time. In this wake, the voice of the great Cantor J.S Bach will be paraphrased for the piano by Ferruccio Busoni, one of his most fervent transcribers. From end to end, this programme transcends the aesthetics and weaves links between past and present, so much does this literature hold a particular universe.
