Olivier Chauzu trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, where he obtained First Prize for Piano followed by First Prize in Chamber Music, studying under Gabriel Tacchino, Théodore Paraschivesko, Jean-Claude Pennetier and György Sebök. He was also a pupil of Leon Fleisher, Vitaly Margoulis and Dimitri Bashkirov before further studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts in Alberta, Canada. A prizewinner at the Barcelona 1989 Maria Canals International competition, he went on to be awarded the Prix Claude Debussy in the Yvonne Lefébure competition in Saint-Germain-en-Laye the following year.

His recording of Isaac Albéniz’s Iberia for the Calliope label received a Diapason d’Or as an outstanding recording by a new artist. His subsequent recordings of Paul Dukas’ complete piano works and selected piano pieces by Schumann and Beethoven received similar critical acclaim.

Chauzu is noted for his eclectic repertoire, which includes piano works from all periods of musical history, from Bach and Scarlatti to 20th-century composers such as Mompou and Stockhausen. He has toured the world, playing with orchestras such as the Calgary Philharmonic, Mexico Philharmonic, Bratislava Symphony, Ontario Philharmonic, and many French orchestras.

His recordings for Calliope, Naxos, Grand Piano and Azur Classical include Albéniz’s Iberia, which received the Diapason d’Or, Dukas’ complete piano works, Schumann piano pieces, Beethoven’s final sonatas, and Samazeuilh’s complete piano works [GP669] which received the Choc Classica.
