French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet has a stellar international career and a reputation as one of the most engaging live performers of his generation. Having recently completed an acclaimed eleven volume recording of all Haydn’s sonatas for piano, he returns to an all-time favourite, Debussy.
His programme is a feast of Debussy, in the first half set with his contemporary Massenet, post-interval alongside toccatas by Sancan and by Liszt. Although little known in the UK, Pierre Sancan was a major figure in French musical life through the mid twentieth century. Pianist, conductor and composer, he was also an inspirational teacher at the Paris Conservatoire where he mentored many now distinguished students. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet was one of this group.
We are delighted to be welcoming Jean-Efflam to the SJE Arts International Piano Series.
