Internationally renowned concert organist Dr. Martin Gregorius was born in 1991 in Poland, where he discovered at the age of 5, the monumental organ at Gdańsk-Oliwa Cathedral. Fascinated by the instrument, this encounter sparked his musical journey to study organ, improvisation, music theory, composition, conducting and church music at world-leading music institutions, including the Detmold University of Music (Germany), the Conservatory of Paris and the Conservatory of Lyon (France). During his studies, he discovered different styles of musical interpretation under the direction of Michel Bouvard, Hanna Dys, Roman Perucki, François Espinasse, Olivier Latry and Tomasz Adam Nowak. Improvisation has always been at the forefront of his artistic creation. With his remarkable talent, he developed his own unique style under the French masters, including Pierre Pincemaille, Thierry Escaich and Philippe Lefebvre. In 2017 he obtained his doctorate, which focuses on the improvisation of the French Organ School.
In 2017, Martin Gregorius was appointed Organist in Residence at the Sapporo Concert Hall “Kitara”, Japan. During his year of residency, he performed throughout Japan in prestigious venues such as the Art Tower Mito, Sumida Triphony Hall and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. He collaborated with world-renowned conductors and soloists such as Matthias Bamert, Simon Gaudenz, Rainer Küchl, Max Pommer, Shuntaro Sato, Kanade Yokoyama and reputed orchestras including the Sapporo Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Prague and Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie. In 2018, Martin Gregorius released his debut album “Stained Glass Dances” at the Sapporo Concert Hall.
