Pascal Amoyel

Voted “Solo Instrumental Discovery of the Year” at the Victoires de la Musique in 2005, Pascal Amoyel was awarded the 2010 Grand Prix du Disque by the prestigious Chopin Society in Warsaw for his recording of the complete Nocturnes by Chopin, together with Martha Argerich and Nelson Freire.

This marked the beginning of a great international career, which has led him to perform in the most prestigious concert venues – Berlin Philharmonie, Amsterdam Muziekgebouw, Brussels Palais des Beaux-Arts, Cité de la Musique and Salle Pleyel in Paris –, as well as in the United States, Canada, Russia, China and Korea.

His recordings, whether on his own or with cellist Emmanuelle Bertrand, have received high distinctions such as the Cannes Classical Award, the Diapason d’Or de l’Année, the ‘Choc’ du monde de la Musique, or the German Record Critics’ Award.

Pascal Amoyel is also a composer and a laureate of the Banque Populaire Foundation.

Amoyel works on creating new concert forms. His Block 15, ou la musique en résistance was very successful and was adapted for TV by France Télévisions, while “The fifty-fingered pianist”, “The day I met Franz Liszt”, and Looking for Beethoven sold out at the Avignon Festival and ran for months at the Ranelagh Theatre in Paris. 

Pascal Amoyel heads the Notes d’Automne festival for which he has commissioned more than forty creations.

He is a winner of the Premier Grand Prix Arts-Deux Magots, which rewards “a musician blessed with openness and generosity”, Licra’s Prix Jean-Pierre Bloch for “the connection with human rights in his work”, and has been made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and a Chevalier des Palmes académiques.
