  • Belgian organist and composer born in 1954, I am professor emeritus of analysis and harmony  at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

  • I am  at the origin of the construction of the organ of the N.-D. des Grâces church in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, better known as the ‘Orgue du Chant d'Oiseau’. I was there  titular organist and curator until 1990.

  • Inveterate improviser and recognised as such, I have also made myself heard, as a concert performer, in a wide repertoire ranging from Buxtehude to Messiaen, with a predilection for French symphonic music.

  • In my discography, I would like to cite my recordings of Widor (Symphonie gothique), Dupré (Versets sur les vêpres de la Sainte Vierge) and Messiaen (Les Corps glorieux).

  • For the radio, I have often performed in live or deferred broadcasts, notably as a soloist in the 'Symphonie concertante' by Jongen and the concertos for organ and orchestra by Poulenc, Dupré and Flor Peeters.

  • As a composer, I immediately obtained the SABAM composition prize in 1985 with my opus  1, a Stabat Mater for an eight-part mixed choir.

  • As a teacher, my original pedagogical approach to teaching the scriptures based on the repertoire has aroused real enthusiasm among my students.
