The course is directed by Phillippe Bardon Titular organist of the cathedral of Pontoise and co-titular organist of the organ of St-Maximin. Through his long practise of the Isnard organ and his musicological knowledge, he puts his teaching in the service of an authentic and sensitive musical interpretation.
This course opens up the whole French idiom and playing the Isnard organ takes one back to the origins of organ building and playing, often leading one to approach registration of later organs in a new and exciting way.
