BLIND ORGANIST FROM FRANCE TO PLAY HERE
Bach, Clarambault in Andre Marchal's Program Next Friday on Famed Organ Of Germanic Museum
Andre Marchal, celebrated blind organist of the Church of St. Germain des Pres in Paris, is giving a recital on Friday evening, December 2, at 8:15 o'clock on the famous baroque organ of the Germanic Museum. The program will consist of music by Clerambault and Bach, and of improvisation on a given theme.
Born in Paris February 6, 1894, Marchal began his musical studies at L'Institut National des Jeunes Aveugles. Since 1915 he has held the post of organist of St. Germain des Pres. His career as a virtuoso is a spectacular one. His own series of recitals at St. Germain des Pres have covered most of the organ literature.
