The French organist and composer Jean Guillou (*1930) calls his own cycle 'Colloque' in which the grand seigneur among the virtuoso organists wants to present an exchange of ideas, while juxtaposing contrasting instruments such as the organ and percussion, piano or panpipes. 'They represent characteristic personalities who present their ideas with conviction, contradict each other and influence each other all the same.' With such musical conversations, Guillou wants to release the organ from its liturgical obligation and make it more accessible to the audience.In Colloque No. 7 the organ and the piano 'talk to each other': be it in pleasant cooperation, be it in concertante opposition - in this three-part work both instruments engage in a spirited conversation. And one can well imagine what happens musically in the concluding 'Tumultuoso' after 'Lento' and 'Misterioso'!
