Albert Gilbert Ribollet (1884-1963) graduated from the Paris Conservatory
in 1900. He studied with Alexandre Guilmant, Charles-Marie Widor, and Louis
Vierne, among others. Vierne dedicated his “Préambule”
to him. For many years, he played the organs in the Cathedral of Nice, France.
In 1915, during the war, his leg was amputated but he continued with his music.
He served as director of Nice Conservatory from 1947 until 1954. On November
5, 1999, the city council of Nice named a street in his honor. His compositions
include organ music, motets and masses, and symphonies for orchestra. These
pieces require moderate playing ability.
