    Olivier Latry & Thierry Escaich in Edinburgh

    Ear-bending, jaw-dropping performances last night from Latry and Escaich in St Mary's Metropolitan Cathedral in Edinburgh. Merkel, de Grigny, Franck, Vierne and Durufle formed part of the programme, with improvisations making up the rest. The Duet Improvisations were unbelievable, whether from one organ stool or from two consoles, one at the east end, the other up in the organ loft in the west end. The lengthy, unwavering applause at the end would have left them in no doubt of the audience appreciation! They duly rewarded the audience by playing a most enjoyable duet encore (from printed music) that contrasted with all that had gone before.

    Sounds great. Very lucky you could attend such a performance.
