The Brussels host family of Fumika's competition days brought the friendship between the violinist and the organists. The organ of the church of Finisterrae fully restaured in 2000 to its original romantic state of 1856 marries wonderfully the sound of the violin, and particularly the music of the time around 1866, for which we chose the compositions from Ysaye and Franck. The virtuose Zigane of Ravel is a real fireworks of violin music, sophisticated but folk in the same time, with the diatonic and modal use of scale and harmony, some tribute to the Japanese influence in Europe. Married since 20 years, the Belgo-Japanese couple of organists will perform the "Thème et Variation" of Takuya Nemoto, written for organ four hands and 4 feet as a Belgian première, and the work of Xavier Deprez in world première.
