Sun 11/3 @ 2PM
At the age of 31 French organist Pierre Queval from Nantes is well on his way to a stellar career. After studying organ performance and improvisation at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, in 2014 he became head organist of the Cavaillé-Coll/Haerpfer-Ermann organ of the Saint-Ignace Church in Paris. He’s performed on organs in many other French churches as well.
Queval will do a solo recital at the Cleveland Museum of Art on the Gartner Auditorium’s McMyler Memorial Organ. He’ll perform pieces by César Franck, Charles-Marie Widor, Jehan Alain, Maurice Duruflé and Louis Vierne, and conclude the program with one of his own improvisations.
The concert is free, and no reservation is required.
