Pianist Philippe Bianconi
Anne Ratner Concert Series in NYC
French pianist Philippe Bianconi has been described as an artist whose playing is “always close to the soul of the music, lling the space with poetry and life,” (Washington Post) and who offers “an extraordinary exhibition of musicianship, technical control and good taste.” (The London Times)
Bianconi was awarded the Silver Medal in the Seventh Van Cliburn International Competition and made his acclaimed recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 1987. Since then, he has appeared as a soloist with leading orchestras, including those of Cleveland, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Atlanta, Dallas, Buffalo, Montreal and Vancouver, and has performed at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony under James Conlon. He has collaborated with such distinguished conductors as Lorin Maazel, Christoph
von Dohnanyi, Kurt Masur, David Zinman, JoAnn Falletta, Marek Janowski, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, Edo de Waart, and Yoav Talmi.
An active and acclaimed recitalist, Philippe Bianconi has performed around the world, including at New York’s Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall, at Wigmore Hall in London, for the Berlin Philharmonic, and in San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Hamburg, Milan, Madrid, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Sydney. His recent recital in the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris was a huge success, with Le Figaro acclaiming him “one of the best pianists in France.”
