Tanguy de Williencourt
Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris - France
A true Renaissance musician, the French pianist Tanguy de Williencourt is an accomplished soloist and chamber musician, who has also been pursuing studies as a conductor.
After having completed, in 2013, his Master’s degrees in piano, accompaniment and vocal coaching with highest honors at the Paris Conservatoire, he entered the prestigious Artist Diploma Programme there, and was admitted to follow Alain Altinoglu’s orchestral conducting class. The pianists who have particularly influenced him include Roger Muraro, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger, and Claire Désert. Besides, advice of Maria João Pires, Christoph Eschenbach et Paul Badura-Skoda particularly impact him.
A recipient in 2014 of the Blüthner Foundation award given annually to one outstanding pianist at the Paris Conservatoire, Tanguy has also been a prize winner at the Yamaha (2008) and Fauré (2013) competitions.
Tanguy’s solo and chamber music performances have taken him to the TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht, Kyoto’s Alti Hall in Kyoto, St Peterburg Philharmonic’s Great Hall or Berlin Philharmonic’s Chamber Music Hall, and to leading French venues including the Folle Journée de Nantes, Chopin à Bagatelle, La Roque d’Anthéron, or else to the French National Radio. His first record dedicated to Brahms and Schumann with cellist Bruno Philippe was released in 2015 (Evidence Classics).
In 2017, he will release a double-CD featuring the complete Wagner/Liszt opera transcriptions (Mirare label), and a Schubert/Beethoven new recording in duo with Bruno Philippe, for Harmonia Mundi label.
