Bertrand Chamayou - Album out 27th January

Bertrand Chamayou, described by Gramophone as a «young French pianist of an impeccable pedigree“, is already firmly established as one of the most thoughtful and fascinating pianists of his generation. He has chosen Schubert — with the Wanderer-Fantaisie as the centrepiece — for his first release.

Gramophone, putting Chamayou’s playing in a class with Alfred Cortot, has praised the way he … “harnesses power and depth alongside his sparkling virtuosity” and noted his “textual clarity, warm and affectionate expression and luminous piano tone”, while International Record Review singled him out for special praise among the younger pianists of today:

France’s leading music awards, Les Victoires de la Musique, have traced the trajectory of Chamayou’s career: in 2006 he was named as the year’s ‘Révélation’ (outstanding young talent), while 2011 brought him the prize for Solo Instrumentalist and 2012 for Best Recording.

“When Chamayou plays, you believe every note.” (International Record Review)
