Paul Goussot

A versatile musician, Paul Goussot has always tried to diversify his job as an artist by specializing in the organ, the harpsichord, in improvisation as well as in teaching skills. Titular of the Dom Bedos organ at the Abbey of Saint­-Croix in Bordeaux, he has now succeeded François­-Henri Houbart at the Rueil­-Malmaison Conservatory.

Born in 1984 in Bordeaux, Paul Goussot’s organ playing career took off when he entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris where he gained the most important distinctions. Prize winner of numerous international competitions (Bruges, Saint­-Maurice, Luxembourg, Saint-Albans, Haarlem), he is invited in prestigious festivals, and he performs with artists such as Christian Ivaldi, Olivier Latry or with the Caius Consort in Cambridge.

In October 2009, Paul Goussot is appointed 1st young artist in residence in the Cathedral in New­-Orleans for six months. During that stay, he gives organ or harpsichord concerts in Louisiana as well as in Texas.

Paul Goussot’s improvisational skills plays an essential role in his artistic pursuits. His growing interest in silent movies leads him to accompany several screenings in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
