Dieterich Buxtehude  ; (c. 1637/39 – 9 May 1707) was a Danish-German organist and composer of the Baroque period. His organ works represent a central part of the standard organ repertoire and are frequently performed at recitals and in church services. He composed in a wide variety of vocal and instrumental idioms, and his style strongly influenced many composers, including Johann Sebastian Bach. Today, Buxtehude is considered one of the most important composers in Germany of the mid-Baroque.

 

 

He is thought to have been born with the name Diderich Buxtehude. Scholars dispute both the year and country of his birth, although most now accept that he was born in 1637 in Helsingborg, Skåne, at the time part of Denmark (but now part of Sweden). His obituary stated that "he recognized Denmark as his native country, whence he came to our region; he lived about 70 years". Others, however, claim that he was born at Oldesloe in the Duchy of Holstein, which at that time was a part of the Danish Monarchy (but is now in Germany). Later in his life he Germanized his name and began signing documents Dieterich Buxtehude. Buxtehude was exposed to the organ at a young age, as his father, Johannes Buxtehude, was the organist at St. Olai church in Helsingør. Dieterich was employed as an organist, first in Helsingborg (1657–1658), and then at Helsingør (1660–1668). St. Mary’s in Helsingør is the only church where Buxtehude was employed that still has the organ in its original location...

Fabrice Eulry  (born September 4, 1962) is a French boogie-woogie pianist, very famous for his amazing performances that he manages to make both technical and humoristic.

 

Fabrice Eulry est un musicien et compositeur français né le 4 septembre 1962 dans le Tarn à Carmaux.
Après ses débuts au piano en 1972 il s'aperçoit rapidement qu'il est davantage un musicien d'oreille que d'écriture. Influencé dès les années soixante par la musique afro-américaine, sa musique très rythmée, conservera cependant toujours le pilier de la tradition européenne.

 

À partir de 1981 il devient pianiste professionnel, essentiellement soliste. Basé en province (Lille, Grenoble ou il fait son premier passage télé remarqué par FR3) puis il part pour la Nouvelle-Orléans en 1988 et 1989 puis ne donne plus de concert pendant un an, se retirant dans le massif central pour aiguiser son jeu pianistique et composer. Il entamera à partir de 1990 une carrière à Paris qui partie de peu, lui vaudra une notoriété croissante.

 

Remarqué en 1987 par des musiciens parisiens comme Carl Schlosser, avec qui il enregistrera un premier disque en 1991 qui leur vaudra le prix mainstream de l'académie du jazz, aidé par son éclectisme, qui lui vaut par ailleurs de nombreuses critiques de ses pairs, mais dont il profite pour mettre un pied dans tous les milieux musicaux très fractionnés, du musette aux folklores, en passant par la variété, les clubs de Jazz comme le Petit-journal et les établissements où l'on danse le rock'n roll et le swing comme le Slow-club1 ou le Caveau de la huchette, où les orchestres l'engagent dans un premier temps, et où à partir de 1993 il passera régulièrement pendant des années sous nom, avec son propre orchestre, Fabrice Eulry voit sa réputation se médiatiser...
