François-René Duchâble (Piano, Arranger)

Born: April 22, 1952 - Paris, France

The French pianist, François-René Duchâble, studied at the Paris Conservatory, and at the age of 13 won the institution's first prize in piano. Three years later he placed 11th at the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium competition in Brussels, and in 1973 he won the Prix de la Fondation Sacha Schneider.

At that time François-René Duchâble caught the attention of the legendary Artur Rubinstein, who encouraged him to pursue a solo career and helped him secure his first important engagements. Since then, Duchable has enjoyed an uninterupted and highly succesful concert career in Europe, the USA, Canada, and Japan.

François-René Duchâble has been recognized for his performances of a wide swath of the standard repertory, including the concertos of L.v. Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann, Béla Bartók and Ravel, and solo piano works of Franz Liszt, Chopin, and Francis Poulenc. He has appeared at many prestigious music festivals, including those of Salzburg, Lucerne, Berlin, the London Proms, Lockenhaus, and the Flanders Festival, and has presented concerts at London's Royal Festival Hall, the Philharmonie in Berlin, and the Musikverein in Vienna. As an orchestral soloist, Duchable has performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Berliner Philharmoniker, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and Montreal Symphony.
