Thierry Pallesco was born in Paris in 1956. After achieving his piano studies at the Conservatoire National de Région de Versailles in the class of Madeleine Chacun - he later became one of her assistants - he studied the organ at the Ecole Nationale de Musique d'Orsay with André Isoir (gold medal in 1980), then with Rolande Falcinelli at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris where he was awarded the first prizes in harmony (in 1980, in the class of Roger Boutry), in counterpoint (in 1981, in the class of Jean-Paul Holstein) and in fugue (in 1982, in the class of Michel Merlet) then his prize in organ (in 1983).

In 1984, he was a finalist of the composition competition of the Amis de l'Orgue. Since then his works have been published in France and Germany.

At the present time, he is professor of harmony at the University of Poitiers, France. He has been organist of the Cathédrale St-Spire de Corbeil-Essonnes (in the Paris area). He now plays in Poitiers (St-Paul Church)

This CD, made in Glasgow Cathedral is the first commercial release of Pallesco's organ music. Internationally acclaimed and leading concert organist Kevin Bowyer is the ideal exponent of this repertoire which is an ideal collectors CD.

"Kevin Bowyer is a characteristically fine intermediary, finding dark poetry in Pellesco's granite-edged, transcendentally laced music....strong stuff but rewarding" Michael Quinn - Choir and Organ
