Luc Ponet plays the organs of the Basilica in Tongeren

Composer(s):
Artist(s):

In this recording, the third in a series of three in which we present recently rediscovered works and unfamiliar repertoire, we explore the salient characteristics of organ performance in the Prince-Bishopric of Liège and its influence on the French classical organ style. These recordings are part of a PhD research programme that will be concluded in 2019; the results of this research will also be published on the Internet at that time. This project was launched on the discovery of the Tongeren Organ Manuscript (Manuscript Berx); the contents of this manuscript will be published as a modern performing edition within the near future. Readers are invited to consult https://kuleuven.academia.edu/LucPONET for further information on all of the above.

Luc Ponet The organist and conductor Luc Ponet was born in Hasselt and studied at the Lemmens Institute (Leuven University College of Arts) in Leuven and at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna. He was professor of organ at the Lemmens Institute from 1982 to 2000. Than, he was appointed as an inspector (academies of music and conservatories) for the Flemish community, since when he has been a guest lecturer and visiting professor at the Lemmens Institute (Leuven), Concordia University (River Forest – Chicago) and Waco University (Texas). He is the organist-titular for the historic Le Picard organ (1750) in the basilica of Tongeren, the oldest city in Belgium; he is also the resident organist for the Landcommanderij Alden Biesen, the European cultural and congress centre of the Flemish community in Bilzen. He is the artistic director of the Bach Academie Alden Biesen and has been appointed city organist of Leuven as well as curator of the Leuven Orgelstad Festival in 2012.

Luc Ponet gives lectures, master classes and concerts throughout the world. He has recorded for Naxos, Pavane Records, Étoile Productions and, from 2018 on, for Et’cetera Records; articles by him have also appeared in various professional journals. He is currently working towards a PhD at the University of Leuven, researching organ performance practice in the Prince-Bishopric of Liège during the first half of the 17th century, as well as its influence on the classical French organ repertoire and its relationship to other organ performance and compositional styles in Europe.
