About

Praised by the great Leif Ove Andsnes for his ‛clear singing soundʼ, Antoine Pichon is a student of internationally acclaimed concert pianist Peter Jablonski at the Royal College of Music in London.

 

He has recently performed on BBC Radio 3 In Tune and has had the opportunity to perform in Norway, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Serbia. Following two recitals at the World Piano Conference in Novi Sad, Serbia, and the Festival Off in Colmar, France, he has been invited to perform again in Novi Sad in 2017 and in Colmar in 2018.

Between 2013 and 2017, Antoine studied at the Mozarteum University Salzburg. His teachers include Henri Sigfridsson, George Kern, Tatiana Sieurac, Simone Fontanelli and Thérèse Lindquist. He has attended masterclasses with Evelyne Brancart, Oxana Yablonskaya, Alexander Bonduriansky, Archie Chen, Frederic Chiu, Mayron Tsong and Leif Ove Andsnes among others.

“”

“The Seven Fantasies op. 116 by Brahms were a delight. […] Antoine Pichon displayed great tension and tenderness, with large eruptions, luminous minimalism, peaceful breathing and finally voluble, dazzling explosion without exaggeration. […] His Liszt Third Concert Etude in D flat Major “Un Sospiro” sparkled with vivid colours at a furious pace, and he was always able to bring the audience back to calm.”
