For several decades Jean-Pierre Armengaud has pursued a particularly rich international career as a pianist and concert-performer, notable for the extent of his repertoire (from Bach to Boulez), by the number of countries to which he has been invited (more than forty) and the importance of his recordings which include five highly acclaimed editions of the complete works of French and Russian composers. Trained under the shadow of Yves Nat and Jacques Février, and of the Russian Stanislav Neuhaus, Armengaud is today acknowledged as one of the great interpreters of French music from Rameau to Henri Dutilleux whose Préludes he has first performed in a number of countries. He has recorded the complete piano music of Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, Albert Roussel and of the Russian composer Edison Denisov, the chamber music of Francis Poulenc and some fifteen albums (including six for Naxos) of Beethoven, Chopin, Scriabin (2015), Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Szymanowski, Ravel, L. Aubert (2015), Poulenc (2014), Milhaud, Messiaen, Schoenberg, Stockhausen, Boulez and others. He has always had a passion for chamber music and has collaborated with distinguished musicians, including the violinist Pierre Amoyal, the cellist Alexander Rudin, the clarinettist Michel Portal, the violist Gérard Caussée and the pianists Dominique Merlet, Jean-Claude Pennetier, Olivier Chauzu, and the Parennin, Rosamonde and Paul Klee Quartets. In 2016, the 150th anniversary of the birth of Erik Satie, he will trave to Asia, North America, Spain, Germany, Italy and elsewhere. Warner Classics is releasing his recording of previously unrecorded works by Satie as part of Armengaudʼs complete edition. Both a musicologist and a writer, Jean-Pierre Armengaud has been responsible for music on Radio France and is a distinguished scholar and teacher in universities and in master-classes in major Conservatoires. His biography of Erik Satie, published by Fayard, was awarded the Prix des Muses, 2009, and his Entretiens avec Edison Denisov (Conversations with Edison Denisov) is published by Editions Plume.
