Renaud

Jean Renaud (Nantes) (1934- ??) learned his skills from Raymond Bouvet (first as apprentice, than as compagnon) and Erwin Müller. He started his own company in 1960. He is a representative of the neoclassical style but restored also several large Cavaillé-Coll organs. In the eighties of the past century, his firm was bought by Gildas Ménoret: Maison Renaud-Ménoret and this firm was bought in 2001 by Nicolas Toussaint (Manufacture Bretonne d'Orgues). He worked with several organ builders around Nantes, e.g. Robert frères, Nicolas Toussaint, Claude Berger and Bernard Hurvy.
