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...
