Its importance in both quality and quantity makes it the most important evidence of this tradition that was developed over almost a century in the larger cities of the region. To celebrate the start of the Buxtehude Year, Bernard Foccroulle, the new director of the Festival dAix-en-Provence who is also one of the most brilliant organists of our times, uses five historic and modern instruments that, with their different characters faithfully captured by Jerome Lejeune, cast new light onto the richness and the variety of this repertory.
