Le Souffle de l’orgue

Here’s a short interview with the organist, Jean-Christophe Geiser, of the Cathedral in Lausanne with its Fisk organ. More information on the organs of the Cathedral is at grandesorgues.ch.

Q: Music allows deepening the faith of those who listen and those who play it?

A: I am sure. That was my case. My parents are Christians but I did not go to the organ because of religion. The music opened my spirituality. I always play a concert at the major Christian holidays, Good Friday, Easter, Pentecost, Christmas Day. The public is not necessarily committed. However, people who do not identify with the cult pick something in music. And they find it. Bach was presented as the fifth evangelist, is quite accurate.
