Robin Ticciati & DSO - Debussy & Faure - BBC Music Magazine “Music to my Ears”
Symphonic music is very special to me as an organist, because there is so much to learn from the different layers and the drama and colours of the performance. The orchestral sound helps me choose registrations and stops on the organ. Conductor Robin Ticciati's recording of Debussy's La mer and Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande is constantly on my CD player. I saw Robin in his inauguration concert with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester, and it was the first time I saw him conducting live. He has an authentic, magical approach to being on stage and makes you forget where you are, and I have only experienced a similar reaction to Claudio Abbado.
