Langue disponible : anglaisFrench pianist Emmanuel Despax has enjoyed a growing career both in his native France and his adopted London home. Despax was born in Paris in 1984. He showed impressive talent as a youngster and was enrolled at the Aix-en-Provence Conservatory when he was 11. His association with England began two years later when he was admitted to the Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey County, studying with Claudio Arrau protégée Ruth Nye. She recommended Despax for a full scholarship to the Royal College of Music, which he entered in 2002. He won a collection of student prizes there, including the RCM's most prestigious, the Tagore Gold Medal, which he received from the hands of Prince Charles. As an undergraduate, Despax performed the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor, Op. 15, under conductor Andrew Litton. Despax made the first of many appearances at Wigmore Hall in September of 2005, and a recording of the concert was released to favorable notices. He continued to seek out master classes with the likes of John Lill, Murray Perahia, Mstislav Rostropovich, András Schiff, Leon Fleisher, and Yehudi Menuhin himself. Despax graduated from the RCM in 2006 and has concertized extensively, especially after a win in the 2009 Dudley International Piano Competition. He has appeared in France at the Louvre, the Salle Cortot, and the Salle Gaveau in Paris, at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Belgium, at a variety of venues in New Zealand, and in Britain at Cadogan Hall, the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, and the Chipping Campden and Petworth Festivals. He has made solo appearances with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Orpheus Sinfonia, and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Signed to the Signum Classics label, he released an album of piano-and-orchestra music by Saint-Saëns, Franck, and Welsh composer Stephen Goss. He followed that up with a Chopin recital in 2017, and the following year he was heard in the Hyperion label's popular Romantic Piano Concerto series in works by Hans von Bronsart and Anton Urspruch. ~ James Manheim
