A centuries-old instrument, the organ is a landmark and unconditional instrument of sacred music. Its impressive architecture as well as its particular tones have inspired generations of composers and faithful throughout the centuries.
We initiated this program at the request of Jean-Paul Muller and the association of the Organ of the Sainte-Bernadette-du-Kreisker church in Lorient (AOSBL), who wanted a musical moment uniting voice and organ to mark the inaugural season of the building's new baroque-inspired organ. To do so, we could conceive of counting on the active participation of organists Mickaël Gaborieau & Teddy Garbet to design a program from scratch.
"Organ and Voice" delivers to the public a singular complementarity, surprising the audience by the harmonic power as by the palette of nuances of the pieces integrated into this program.
