Jean-Efflam Bavouzet playing Beethoven and Ravel.

One of the most engaging live performers of his generation, the multi award-winning pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet regularly works with conductors such as Pierre Boulez, Andrew Davis, Vladimir Jurowski, Vasili Petrenko, Daniele Gatti, Valery Gergiev, Kiril Karabits, Neeme Järvi, Andris Nelsons, Ivan Fischer, Ingo Metzmacher, and Krzysztof Urbánski.

Bavouzet recently performed with the San Francisco, Montreal, Dallas and New Jersey Symphony Orchestras and also appeared with the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra, Sydney Symphony and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg and Orquestra Sinfonica do Estado de São Paulo.

An equally active recitalist, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet regularly performed at London's Southbank Centre, Wigmore Hall and the Cheltenham Festival, La Roque d’Anthéron and Cité de la Musique, Brussels' BOZAR and the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing.

Renowned for his work on disc, Bavouzet has won Gramophone awards for his recording of concerto works by Debussy and Ravel with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Yan Pascal Tortelier, and for his fourth volume of Debussy's Complete Works for Piano. His interpretations of Debussy and Ravel have also earned him two BBC Music Magazine awards and Diapason d'Or, whilst his first volume of Haydn's Piano Sonatas received a Choc de l'année and his Bartók Piano Concertos disc was shortlisted for multiple international awards.

A former student of Pierre Sancan at the Paris Conservatoire, Bavouzet was invited by Sir George Solti to give his debut with the Orchestre de Paris in 1995 and is widely considered as the Maestro’s last discovery. As well as his performing activities, Bavouzet has also made a transcription for two pianos of Debussy’s Jeux, published by Durand with a foreword by Pierre Boulez.
