Biography

Joris Verdin studied organ and musicology. From this dual background originates his special interest in rediscovery of forgotten music from all style periods, concurrently with creations of contemporary works. He has also proved his mettle as a composer. He teaches organ at the conservatory of Antwerp and performance practice at the catholic university of Leuven. At the same time Joris Verdin has been building up an international reputation as a specialist of 19th-century harmonium music. He is on the board of the Göteborg Organ Art Centre. In the field of music editions he has been working in Germany, France, and the Netherlands. His discography boasts a series of CDs with music from the 16th through the 20th century. In May 2000 his CD with César Franck’s organ works was acclaimed as “Event of the month” by the French music journal Diapason, and in 2001 he received the annual Cecilia Prize of the Belgian music press. The ensemble Capilla Flamenca often calls on him to perform early music.
