First of all I was attracted by piano as an instrument. I was four years old when I discovered the piano and its endless possibilities. Three years later, at seven, I was claiming I wanted to be a pianist. This aspiration never disappeared. It became a reality thanks to several strong personalities.
First, Hervé Billaut (Grand prix 1983 at the Concours Marguerite Long) really taught me how to play. When I was 16 years old, after six years in his class at the Conservatoire National de Lyon, I received a golden medal.
In 2004, Daniel Blumenthal, laureate at the Concours Reine Elisabeth in Belgium invited me to join his class at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles.
Having completed two Masters diplomas in Brussels (piano and chamber music), I have been performing in Belgium (Malines, Gand, Anvers, Courtrai) as well as in France in the Lyon region (Festival Un piano à Collonges, Beaujolais en scène et musique,Théâtre de Gleizé...).
In 2010, I met with Nelson Delle-Vigne. A splendid pianist, he inherited from his masters Claudio Arrau et Georges Cziffra a deep knowledge of the repertory, a great talent for pedagogy and a unusual generosity. As an artist in residence at the Fondation Bell’Arte, founded by him, I succeeded in extending my activity as a soloist to other European countries and to the USA.
The Cortot Hall in Paris, the Musée des Instruments de Musique in Brussels, the Centro de los Artes and the Teatro Nacional de Funchal in Madeira, the Centro Cultural de Picanyia in Spain, the Conservatorio di Torino in Italy, the Ciurlionis Museum and the Music Academy of Vilnius in Lithuania, the Roerike Museum of Moscow in Russia are some of the concert halls where I performed lately.
In Belgium, I have played with the Brussels Chamber Orchestra, with the Oxalys Ensemble, with the Quartett Coryfeye, with the Quartett Amôn, and with the pianist Julien Libeer, with whom we often perform together. Besides, since the creation of the Festival EuropArt in 2012, I am happy to contribute to a better knowledge of less known musicians such as for instance Gade, Riadis, Vasks, Muscat, Adams.
In the USA, I am invited regularly by the Chopin Society in Atlanta (Ga). I perform also every year since 2012 at the Palm Beach Atlantic International Piano Festival in Florida. Under the conductor Philippe Entremont, I played the two piano concerti by Chopin which were very well received.
In March 2018, the complete Etudes of Claude Debussy will be released by Cypres Records, with twelve poems from the Belgian poetry Lucien Noullez.
This coming season will take me to France, Luxembourg, Spain, England, Lituania, and Canada for releasing tours.
