The French pianist Bernard Ringeissen was born in Paris, where he became a pupil of Marguerite long and Jacques Février, winning the Premier Prix of the Conservatoire at the age of sixteen. Three years later he took the first prize at the International Piano Competition in Geneva, followed by the Chopin Prize in Warsaw and the Marguerite long-Jacques Thibaud prize in Paris. In 1962 he won the major award of the Rio de Janeiro International Competition and the Villa-Lobos Special prize for his interpretation of Brazilian music. In a distinguished career Bernard Ringeissen has performed as a soloist and recitalist throughout the world, including the Americas and the Far East, and boasts a remarkably wide repertoire. He has served on juries for many of the most celebrated international piano competitions and recordings include three discs devoted to the Russian Five, a complete recording of the piano works of Saint-Saëns and of Stravinsky.
