Just in time for the 50th anniversary of Marcel Dupré's death on 30 May 2021, the first episode of Dupré Digital went online. Tobias Frank, Director of Music at St. Luke's in Munich, initiated this huge, trilingual music and documentary project that takes its listeners and viewers on a journey of discovery through the musical cosmos of the French composer.
Musicians from all over the world perform never-before-heard music by Dupré, including his secular choral songs, chamber music, drafts of "Le Chemin de la Croix", his last great work for organ and orchestra "Résonances" in a version for organ and piano, but also curiosities such as Dupré's cadenza to a Handel organ concerto and much more.
Interviews with experts such as Olivier Latry (Paris), Prof. Ben van Oosten (The Hague), Prof. Robert Quinney (Oxford), Dr. Jeremy Filsell (New York), Denis Rouger (Stuttgart) and former students Dominique Rebourgeon and Michel Tissier as well as the composer's granddaughter Alice Szebrat-Tollet portray Dupré in a total of 13 episodes as a composer, virtuoso, pedagogue and man of his time and reveal surprising and controversial facets.
In a newcomer project, musicians around the world will perform the cycle "Nymphéas", Dupré's impressions of Claude Monet's water lily paintings.
The individual episodes as well as all information on the performers and performance venues can be found on the trilingual project website
