David Bismuth initially studied with Catherine Collard at the Nice Conservatory. At the age of fourteen he was accepted into the Paris Conservatory to the class of Gabriel Tacchino. He then continued in the class of Brigitte Engerer. Bismuth left the Conservatory after 14 years of study, obtaining diplomas in piano and chamber music. He then refined his skills with Monique Deschaussées, successor of the art of Alfred Cortot. Ten years ago Bismuth met Maria João Pires. This acquaintance has inspired and enriched him, both in human and artistic terms. Both musicians have performed together, playing music for piano four hands and for two pianos. Appreciated for the depth and luminosity of his playing, David Bismuth was recently invited to play with the Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National de France and with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, performing under the direction of such conductors as Andris Nelsons, Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Michel Plasson and Fayçal Karoui. He has also performed at many festivals, including the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad, BBC Hay Festival, Festival Radio France in Montpellier, Rencontres Chopin in Nohant, La Chaise Dieu. Early this year David Bismuth was invited to the La Folle Journée Festival in Nantes and returned to Salle Pleyel with two concerts with the Orchestre de Paris under the direction of Cornélius Meister. He will also play at piano festivals: Piano aux Jacobins, Colmar, Saintes, Palazzetto Bru-Zane in Venice, at the Villa Medici in Rome and in London. He will also play with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse.

An avid performer of chamber music, David Bismuth plays many concerts with spoken words recited by actor Didier Sandre, together with violinsts Laurent Korcia and Geneviève Laurenceau and with pianists Bertrand Chamayou and Adam Laloum.

French music occupies an important place in the artist’s discography (Ame Son). He has released six albums with works by Franck and Fauré, Debussy and Dukas and Rachmaninov and Saint-Saëns. The artist also pays homage to Bach in an album titled “B.A.C.Hianas & Transcriptions” (FFFF Télérama) and, more recently to the composer’s family in the album titled “Bach Père et ses fils”, released in March 2014 and warmly received by critics.
