Guy Saint-Clair (1944-2010)
Brilliant international classical concert piano soloist and composer, Guy Saint-Clair was not only a child prodigy (composing at age 3 and soloist with orchestra at age 5) but studied with giants of the piano: Yvonne Loriod, Olivier Messiaen, Frieda Valenzi, Paul Baumgartner, earning Doctorates from France, Germany, and Switzerland. His compositions have been recorded with famous symphonies in Holland, France and England. His recordings with the London Symphony include several world premieres. Guy and his wife, International Portrait Artist, Audrey Sanders, are the founders of the FLORIDA LAKES SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA.
Beloved of audiences for his outstanding musicality as well as his gentle charm, Guy’s dynamic and heartwarming Spirit will live on with each note of the music he loved so well.
