Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s Website
“…the CD’s raison d’être is the Ravel. Bavouzet’s G major concerto is the best since Michelangeli’s 50 years ago: it has style, verve, poetry and balance.” – Financial Times, January 2011

“… Bavouzet is the best living Debussy interpreter. His big tone and sonorous interpretation is a far cry from the perfumed and limpid Debussy served up by so many lesser-gifted pianists. This is, in the best sense of the word, unfussy and direct piano playing. There might be individual recordings from pianists, mostly from the bygone age, that have their champions, but as a complete set of Debussy, nobody today can touch Bavouzet.” – Pianist, December 2012

One of the most engaging live performers of his generation, the multi-award-winning French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet enjoys a prolific recording and international concert career and has worked closely with conductors such as Pierre Boulez, Vladimir Jurowski, Danielle Gatti, Valery Gergiev, Neeme Järvi, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Bruno Mantovani

He was named Artist of the Year at the 2012 International Classical Music Awards, and nominated by Deutsche Grammophon as one of their Artists of the Year in 2012.

Bavouzet records exclusively for Chandos and his disc featuring the complete Prokofiev Piano Concertos with the BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda conducting won the Concerto category of the 2014 Gramophone Awards. Other recordings include Haydn’s Piano Concertos with Manchester Camerata and Gábor Takács-Nagy, Bartok’s Piano Concertos with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda, and Stravinsky’s Complete Works for Piano. Bavouzet’s recordings have garnered two other Gramophone Awards, two BBC Music Magazine Awards, a Diapason d’Or and Choc de l’année. Ongoing recording projects include Beethoven and Haydn piano sonata cycles.
