Bertrand Chamayou plays Schubert

Live from the Salle de la Balance in Paris

Bertrand Chamayou's Schubert concert in Paris.

No need to mention that Bertrand Chamayou is one of the most talented French pianists of his generation. After having received unanimous critical acclaim, he won many prestigious awards such as the Gramophone’s Choice, Choc Classica, Diapason d’Or and three French Victoires de la Musique classique! Bertrand Chamayou first signed a contract with the famous label Naïve, which released his Years of Pilgrimage by Franz Liszt, before signing an exclusive contract with Erato, thanks to which he just recorded his brand new album, dedicated to Schubert.

The young virtuoso carries the composer in his heart, as he chose to perform Schubert once again, for this concert held at the very intimate Salle de la Balance where the 19th century atmosphere is kept intact. The concert starts with German dances, 12 Ländler D. 790 and ends up with the beautiful Wanderer Fantasy. The prodigy also performs Auf dem Wasser zu singen, Ländler D. 366 No. 12, 3 Klavierstücke D. 946 and the Allegretto D. 915.
