|George C. Baker|
George C. Baker, organist, born in 1951, began studying the organ at the age of 10, following a solid initiation to the piano. He continued his studies at Highland Park Methodist Church in Dallas, then at Southern Methodist University (Texas). During this time, he won the American Guild of Organists competition, thus becoming its youngest prize-winner.
He later went to France for advanced study with Marie-Claire Alain and Jean Langlais, before unanimously winning the Grand Prize in interpretation at the Chartres Competition.
His technical skills and architectural sense led him record one of the few existing versions of Darius Milhaud’s organ music, as well as the complete organ works of J.S. Bach, which is currently in the process of being re-released by Solstice.
