The next in our 2021 concert series is pianist Antoine Préat

Described by the French radio as ‘one of the most gifted pianists of the youngest generation’ and as ‘a young artist with a distinctive voice’, Franco-Belgian pianist Antoine Préat is establishing himself as a promising soloist and chamber musician.

Since his orchestral debut at 17, playing Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Orchestra of Alicante, Antoine has performed with European orchestras such as Tonerl Chamber Orchestra, Sainsbury Soloists, Academy Festival Orchestra, London Student Orchestra and Resonate Chamber Ensemble.

Winner of the Philip and Dorothy Green Award 2020, and recently appointed City Music Foundation Artist 2020, Antoine performs regularly in Europe and the United States in halls such as the Salle Cortot, Salle Gaveau, Wigmore Hall, Thayer Hall, Paris Beaux Arts Museum and Frederyk Chopin Institute. His performances have been broadcast on the BBC, Scala Radio and France Musique.

Antoine will release his debut album “Polyphony” under British label Ulysses Arts in late 2020. Performance highlights include festivals such as the Nohant Chopin Festival, Lisztomanias, Chopin à Bagatelle, Les Concerts d’Esther, Marathon Chopin (for his bicentenary), Les Nuits du Piano in Paris, IMS Prussia Cove, Encuentro de Santander.

Antoine is an avid chamber musician; he was the youngest artist invited to join the Centre de Musique de Chambre de Paris, directed by Jerome Pernoo, with whom he gave a concert series at the Salle Cortot in Paris, sponsored by Deutsche Gramophone. He has been a finalist/prizewinner in numerous national and international competitions such as the Ettlingen Competition for Young Pianists, the Concours International de la Ville de Gagny, the Concours international d’Ile de France, and received an honour prize at the New York Début Piano Competition.

After having completed his postgraduate course with honours at the Ecole Normale de Paris (class of L. Berlinskaia and G. Katsrava), Antoine furthered his studies at the Royal Academy of Music under the tutelage of Tatiana Sarkissova and Christopher Elton, where he earned a Master of Arts as well the DipRam, the highest distinction delivered by the institution.

Looking to enrich his understanding of the instrument and its repertoire, Antoine began to study fortepiano and period instruments with Carole Cerasi at the academy and has also been fortunate to receive guidance from artists such as Andreas Staier, Tobias Koch, Philippe Cassard, Alberta Alexandrescu, Robert Levin, Jerome Lowenthal, Richard Goode, Imogen Cooper and Stephen Hough.

Antoine is supported by Talent Unlimited, the Munster Derek Butler Award, Hattori Foundation and the Winifred Christie Trust Award.
