Jean-Pierre Armengaud has enjoyed a long international career as a pianist, with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Boulez, appearances in more than forty countries and a series of important and acclaimed recordings. A pupil of Yves Nat and Jacques Février, and, in Russia, of Stanislav Neuhaus, he is one of the leading interpreters of French music from Rameau to Henri Dutilleux, having performed the latter’s Préludes in many countries. His recordings include the complete piano works of Claude Debussy, Erik Satie and Albert Roussel, and of the Russian composer Edison Denisov, the chamber music of Francis Poulenc, and some fifteen recordings of works by Beethoven, Chopin, Scriabin, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Szymanowski, Milhaud, Messiaen, Schoenberg, Stockhausen and Boulez. In chamber music he has collaborated with the violinist Pierre Amoyal, the cellist Alexander Rudin, the clarinettist Michel Portal, the viola-player Gérard Caussé, the pianists Dominique Merlet and Jean-Claude Pennetier, and the Parennin and Paul Klee Quartets, among others. As a musicologist and writer he was responsible for contemporary music on Radio France and has taught in universities. His biography of Erik Satie has been published by Fayard, and his Entretiens avec Edison Denisov (Conversations with Edison Denisov) by Calmann-Lévy.
