Guy Poupart Contemporary

Born in Luxemburg 1963. First organ lessons by late cathedral organist Carlo Hommel (Luxemburg). After years devoted to chemistry (PhD from ETH Zürich), Guy studied organ with Rudolf Scheidegger, organist at the Grossmünster Zürich. Concert diploma (summa cum laude) with Bernhard Billeter. Masterclasses with Ton Koopman, Zsigmond Szathmáry, Montserrat Torrent and Jean-Claude Zehnder. Stipends from the Norwegian State enabled him to follow private studies with Guy Bovet, Bernard Winsemius and Ludger Lohmann.
Guy Poupart is often invited to play concerts in Norway, Europe and South Korea. He has played recitals on famous organs in Germany, Switzerland, and the Ukraine. In 2013, Guy has been invited to play in South Korea (Kyong Dong Church in Seoul and at Seoul Theological University where he also had a masterclass). He participates in international festivals in Kongsberg, Oslo, Bergen (Norway), Wiltz (Luxemburg), Vendssyssel and the Sønderjylland/Schleswig  Festival (Denmark / Germany). Here is a list of important venues that Guy has played recitals.
His repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to today’s music. He is especially dedicated to newer music, both from Scandinavia and other parts of the world. He often plays little heard newer music, e.g. William Albright’s ”The King of Instruments”, Jehan Alain’s “Trois danses”, Guy Bovet’s “Tangos Ecclesiasticos” or Ad Wammes’ ”Vallée des danses”.
