Georges Pludermacher has today won universal renown as a pianist. He was only three years old when he began to play the piano, and only eleven when he was accepted into the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris, where he studied under Lucette Descaves and Jacques Fevrier, and later under Geneviève Joy and Henriette Puig. He won many first prizes, and quickly added several international awards to the list of his successes: second prize in the Competitions of Vianna da Mota and Leeds, and most importantly, the only prize to be given at the Geza Anda Competition in 1979. His solo career quickly led him to perform under the direction of such acclaimed conductors as Sir Georg Solti (Chicago Symphony), Christophe von Dohnányi (French National Orchestra) and Pierre Boulez (at the head of the London Sinfonia). In chamber music he collaborated with the violinists Christian Ferras and Ivry Gitlis, and with his undisputed master, the great Nathan Milstein. Today Georges Pludermacher enjoys a rewarding collaboration with the Pasquier Trio and the Amadeus Quartet, and the outstanding partnership of Ernst Häfflinger (cycles of Schubert, Schumann and Schoenberg), Michel Portal, Yuri Bashmet and Jean-François Heisser. A regular guest of the most important festivals both in France and abroad (including Salzburg, Vienna, Montreux, Aix-en-Provence, Edinburgh, Avignon, Florence, Tours, Strasbourg, Barcelona and Madrid), Georges Pludermacher has become famous for a wide-ranging repertoire that allows him to combine his taste for a challenge with his love of secrecy.
