Janette Fishell

The organ is me. I can’t make a distinction between the instrument and who I am because I’ve loved it, it’s meant so much to me. It is the way I communicate with my students and with an audience. It’s been my lifelong companion, my teacher, and my comfort.

A recitalist and teacher of international standing, Janette Fishell has performed in many of the world’s greatest concert venues, and has been featured in live radio broadcasts worldwide.

Her recordings include performances of the music of Marcel Dupré, Petr Eben—a Czech composer on whose music she is considered the leading authority—and J. S. Bach, as well as duet literature performed with her husband, English organist Colin Andrews.
