Thierry Escaich, composer and organist S.EROME

Thierry Escaich has been a church organist in Paris for more than 20 years. He plays hymns and chorales, and then improvises on those themes. On Wednesday's Performance Today, we'll hear Escaich's 21st Century twist on the old Lutheran tune, A Mighty Fortress Is Our God. The piece is called 'Psalmos' by Thierry Escaich and is performed by the Cincinnati Symphony.
