Bertrand Chamayou on the cover of International Piano magazine

The bi-monthly piano authority describes the Ravel, Debussy and Saint-Saëns specialist as a 'French colourist'.

Bertrand Chamayou is the cover star for the January 2018 edition of International Piano magazine, out now. The in-depth interview delves into the mystery and spirituality of the music of Liszt, Debussy and Ravel. 

'Bertrand Chamayou doesn’t just perform music of the great Late Romantic and French Impressionist composers – he seems to channel their very spirit as he plays. Robert Turnbull met the Frenchman at his International Piano Series debut in London, where he mesmerised the audience with some extraordinary Liszt.'

International Piano explores how Chamayou's recordings 'have become legendary, admired especially by France’s younger generation who see him as a successor to Jean-Yves Thibaudet.'

Chamayou also discusses the new Debussy Chamber Music album, which was named one of The Guardian's Top 10 Classical Albums in 2017.
