In memoriam Gaël Liardon.
Liardons beautiful organ works are characterized by stylistic purity, clear voice guidance and musical simplicity. Liardon died at the age of only 44, but remains alive in his music.
The amazing chorale trio on “Wenn wir in höchsten Nöthen sein” harmonizes the melody in minor.
Another one of Liardons beautiful chorale trios, based on "Freu dich sehr, o meine Seele", I recently posted here:
'Gaël Liardon (1973-2018) was a versatile Swiss musician, composer, organist, piano player, singer and songwriter, teacher, improviser, theorist and researcher, organizer of concerts and cultural events. He loved discovery and was interested in many musical styles.‘ (Benjamin Righetti, Lausanne)
