One of the most engaging live performers of his generation, the multi award-winning pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet regularly works with conductors such as Pierre Boulez, Andrew Davis, Vladimir Jurowski, Vasili Petrenko, Daniele Gatti, Valery Gergiev, Kiril Karabits, Neeme Järvi, Andris Nelsons, Ivan Fischer, Ingo Metzmacher, and Krzysztof Urbánski.
Named ‘Artist of the Year’ at the 2012 International Classical Music Awards, his recent highlights have included an appearance at the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York with Louis Langrée, a BBC Prom with Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. He returns to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Budapest Festival Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra, as well as performances with the Orchestra National de Lyon, Tivoli Symphony Orchestra with Kirill Karabits, and in Japan with the NHK Symphony and Kyoto Symphony orchestras.
A former student of Pierre Sancan at the Paris Conservatoire, Bavouzet was invited by Sir George Solti to give his debut with the Orchestre de Paris in 1995 and is widely considered as the Maestro’s last discovery. As well as his performing activities, Bavouzet has also made a transcription for two pianos of Debussy’s Jeux, published by Durand with a foreword by Pierre Boulez. He won first prize in the International Beethoven Competition in Cologne as well as the Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York in 1986.
Bavouzet is Artistic Director of the Lofoten Piano Festival in Norway.
He will perform with Singapore Symphony Orchestra on 8 September at the Esplanade Concert Hall.
