- Jean Guillou (Organ)
Notes & Reviews:
Jean Guillou has been hailed as a distinguished interpreter of organ literature, a key exponent of the art of improvisation, a composer of note and a leading figure in the field of organ theory and design. Stemming from the grand tradition of French organistcomposers typified by his teacher, Marcel Dupre, Guillou has enriched the repertoire of the pipe organ with a number of extraordinary transcriptions of Bach, Handel, Liszt, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Mussorgsky and Stravinsky. The stunning Kleuker organ of the Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Neiges, in Alpe d'Huez, France, lends its incredible spectrum of colors to Guillou's transcription of Bach's monumental Goldberg Variations.
