Fascinated by organ in all its ways of expression, Guy-Baptiste Jaccottet (1998) studies repertoire in the class of Benjamin Righetti (HEMU-Lausanne) and improvisation in the class of Paul Goussot (CRR Rueil-Malmaison). Deeply attracted to improvisation, theater and cinema, he is titular organist at the Théâtre Barnabé. From 2019 to 2021, he is assistant organist at the Saint-François Church in Lausanne. In 2020, he took up his duties as titular organist at the Temple de La Tour-de-Peilz and as organ teacher at the Conservatoire de Montreux-Vevey-Riviera.

 

As a concert organist, a cinema organist or in chamber music, he gives about thirty concerts a year, notably in prestigious places (Verbier Festival, Festival internazionale di musica organistica di Magadino, Festival l’orgue fait son cinéma Geneva, Festival Bach de Lausanne, Davos Festival). Always keen to defend a wide and varied repertoire, he regularly produces videos on his YouTube channel. His music was also recognized in 2016 with the First Prize and the Audience Prize of the international composition competition Musique Nouvelle pour Flûte-à-bec as well as the publication of his pedagogical works by the association Kinder an die Orgel (2022 release).

 

Eager for novelty, but respectful of the traditions, he received in 2019 the scholarship for talent and creativity from the Fondation Casino Barrière

teaching

Study the organ through dynamic teaching adapted to all ages and levels. Are you interested? The organ class of the Conservatoire de Montreux-Vevey-Riviera (CMVR) is open to all of you !

 

Do not hesitate to contact me to talk about it !

You can also browse the pages of the Carnaval des Zoorganistes, written especially for budding organists. For the more adventurous, the score of "Pictures of a Silent Movie" will soon be available!

La Tour-de-Peilz
dscf2484_51512128939_o.jpg
La Tour-de-Peilz

The temple of La Tour-de-Peilz is a bit like my "office" : it is there that I practice daily, that I accompany the religious services, and that I teach.

 

It has two very complementary organs which are at the center of the musical life of the temple : the Jean-François Mingot gallery organ (1991) and the Felsberg/Liardon choir organ (1994).

It is the Association des Concerts Clef-de-Voûte that makes musically live this place, through the "Concerts de Saison" and the "Orgue du Marché" concerts.

 

The two organs can be heard every second Saturday of the month at 11am during the "Orgue du Marché", as well as during the services, on Wednesdays at 9am and Sundays at 10am.

Théâtre Barnabé
Théâtre Barnabé

The Théâtre Barnabé, which specializes in musical comedy and cabaret, houses in its main hall an organ straight out of a child's dream, a fantastic instrument imagined by Jean-Claude Pache, alias Barnabé. This unclassifiable musical instrument, halfway between a barrel organ, a cinema organ and a church organ, never fails to amaze the audience at each concert.

 

For more than 20 years now, the Festival Voix du Muet has been held in this out-of-time place. During this festival, improvising organists bring silent film masterpieces back to life for an evening.

 

Unfortunately, the organ is not in good condition and needs a lot of care. This is why the association Les Amis de l'Orgue du Théâtre Barnabé (AOTB) was founded in 2020. Their main goal is to finance the regular maintenance of the instrument and the development of a complete restauration project.

 

Stay tuned, big projects coming up!

recordings

Place the microphones, choose the framing, record, listen, correct, edit... It's a real work process that pushes me to go to the end of things. Although videos can never replace the feeling of a live concert, they allow me to share my passion with a different audience.

Two CD recordings are planned for 2022-23, in duet with flutist and recorder player Charlotte Schneider, then solo with a Bach program. However, while waiting for the release of these two albums, check out the various streaming platforms... there are already a few recordings waiting for you.

scores

Compositions, transcriptions, works for children & more !

​New scores are regularly posted on my IMSLP page

" Frescobaldi/Liardon: Canzoni"

When Gaël Liardon died in 2018, many were looking for the manuscripts of his accompaniments to Frescobaldi "canzoni a canto solo". No trace of them had then been found, although their existence was certain.

In March 2020, I used the time of lockdown to re-transcribe these counterpoints from the recordings Gaël had made of them in 2014 with Jan van Hoecke on recorder. 

Since then a manuscript (dating from before the recordings) and two digital scores (made after the recordings) have been found. (More details can be found in the preface).

The result of the combination of these different sources is available on www.gaelliardon.ch or directly here.

" Pictures of a silent movie"

A work for children commissioned by the association Kinder an die Orgel. Soon to be published !

" Pictures of a silent movie"

A commission for harp and harmonium from the Festival 4 Saisons, which harpist Tjasha Gafner and I premiered on October 24, 2020 in the Salon Alice Bailly at the Opéra de Lausanne. The score is available here. Recordings made at the Temple de La Tour-de-Peilz are online here.

"Le Carnaval des Zoorganistes"

A work for budding organists. The score is now available for free on IMSLP. All the pieces have been video recorded by students from the Conservatoire de Lausanne and are available here.

" Dario Castello, Sonate a canto solo"

 

A brand new continuo realization for Dario Castello's "Sonata Prima a Soprani solo" and "Sonata Seconda a sopran solo" (Sonate concertate in stil moderno, libro secondo).
