Welcome to Secrets of Organ Playing Podcast #48!
Today's guest is Dr. Martin Jean who is Professor of Organ and Director of the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.
Professor Jean has performed widely throughout the United States and Europe and is known for his wide repertorial interests. He was awarded first place at the international Grand Prix de Chartres in 1986, and in 1992 at the National Young Artists’ Competition in Organ Performance.
In 2001 he presented a cycle of the complete organ works of Bach at Yale, and his compact discs of The Seven Last Words of Christ by Charles Tournemire and the complete Six Symphonies of Louis Vierne, both recorded in Woolsey Hall, have been released by Loft Recordings. Recordings of the organ symphonies and Stations of the Cross of Marcel Dupré are forthcoming on the Delos label. Professor Jean is on the board of directors of Lutheran Music Program. He earned the A.Mus.D. from the University of Michigan.
In this conversation, Professor Jean shares his insights on what does it take to raise the next generation of leaders of the sacred music field in the 21st century.
