Vincent Thévenaz

Vincent Thévenaz is professor of organ and improvisation at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Geneva and titular organist and carilloneur of the Saint-Pierre Cathedral in Geneva. His concerts have led him to many European countries, as well as Argentina, Uruguay, Canada and India. Having benefited from a complete training (organ, piano, classical and jazz improvisation, musicology, musical theory, direction, singing, French and Russian letters), he aspires to make known and appreciated the many different facets of the organ: as a soloist, with other instruments, sometimes classical (violin, flute), sometimes quirky (Alpine horn, percussion), as well as with an ensemble. He also plays different keyboard instruments, such as harmonium, Hammond and theatre organ, and carillon. Passionate about improvisation, he devotes himself to it on the piano as much as the organ, in concert or to accompany silent films.
