Ghislain Leroy and Romain Leleu
The 21st Season of the Eccles Organ Festival continues Sunday November 9, 2014 at 8:00 pm at The Cathedral of the Madeleine with a recital by the French duo Ghislain Leroy (organ) and Romain Leleu (trumpet).
Hailing from Northern France, and educated in the National Conservatoires Supérieurs de Musique in Paris and Lyon, Ghislain Leroy and Romain Leleu revisit since 2006 the emblematic duo Trumpet and Organ. Artists with a rare musical empathy, with a strong commitment to share the passion for their instruments, they propose in their recitals a large panorama from all epochs and styles.
All performances of the Eccles Organ Festival are open to the public and free of charge.View items...
David Enlow, hailed for his "enormous virtuosity" (Stuttgarter Zeitung), "arresting performances" (The American Organist), and his "gutsy, yet sensitive" playing (Organ Canada), is a concert organist and church musician who has performed across the United States, in Canada, and across England and Europe. Mr. Enlow’s recent recording of the complete major organ works of César Franck on the Pro Organo label Pater Seraphicus has been well reviewed, notably in the French language press. Mr. Enlow is Organist and Choir Master of the Church of the Resurrection in New York. This concert is open to the public and free of admission.
