(1949 - 2013)

Pierre Moret

Compositeur - Composer

Organist

Pierre Moret studied music  in Paris in the 1970s.

From 1981 to 2000, he withdrew from contact with churches and organs.

In 2000, he discovered the great richness of some of the organs in Finisterre (Brittany), where he was encouraged to play works suited to each instrument, and to compose for them.

At the same time, he met Yves Berthou, a famous talabarder ("bombarde" player) in Brittany, who tought him some of the Breton airs that he plays so skilfully.
Pierre Moret chose to adapt them for solo organ by composing variations. Then he had the idea of recording them, adding some baroque and classic works constructed in similar style; the title of the record was obvious : Airs and variations Breton airs, baroque and classic works.
The  St-Thégonnec organs were chosen because they are as well suited to Breton airs as to the works of J.S. Bach, L. C. Daquin, J. Pachelbel, W.A. Mozart J.P. Sweelinck.
