Peter Van de Velde

The Antwerp cathedral organist Peter Van de Velde gathers almost exclusively world premiere recordings on his new album, in the center of which is the only organ symphony by the Belgian Camille Jacquemin. Peter Van de Velde ranks as the fifth organist of the romantic Schyven organ of Antwerp Cathedral. Peter Van de Velde (* 1972) started his organ-studies by himself at the age of nine. At the age of twelve he became organist at the local church in the little Flemish village of Doel. He received his first musical tuition at the Antwerp Academy of Fine Arts. He was awarded first prize for music notation and concluded his organ studies at the Academy with highest honors. He went on to pursue his studies at the Royal Antwerp Conservatory of Music where he won several first prizes in addition to other comparable awards.
