Nicholas Angelich (Piano)

Born in the USA in 1970, Nicholas Angelich began studying the piano at the age of five with his mother. At the age of seven, he gave his first concert with Mozart’s Twenty-First Concerto (K. 467) and at the age of thirteen he entered the Conservatoire National in Paris where he studied under Aldo Ciccolini, Yvonne Loriod, Michel Béroff and Marie Françoise Bucquet. During his studies Nicholas won First Prize for piano and chamber music performing.
The musician has attended master-classes given by such virtuosi as Leon Fleisher, Dmitri Bashkirov, and Maria João Pires. In 1989 Angelich won the Second Prize at the International Robert Casadesus Piano in Cleveland and in 1994 he took First Prize at the International Gina Bachauer Piano Competition. In 1996 the musician was invited to collaborate with the International Piano Foundation of Cadenabbia (Italy), while in 2002 at the International Klavierfestival Ruhr (Germany) he won the Young Talent Award from Leon Fleischer. He also performed there in 2003.

The pianist’s debut with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra under Kurt Masur took place at the Lincoln Center in May 2003. Vladimir Jurowski invited Nicholas to open the 2007–08 season of the Russian National Orchestra in Moscow.
The pianist has performed with the Orchestre National de France under Marc Minkowski and Josep Pons, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Paavo Järvi, the Orchestre National de Lyon and David Robertson, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo under Jesús López-Cobos and Kenneth Montgomery, the St Petersburg Philharmonic under Alexander Dmitriev, the Strasbourg and Montpellier Orchestras under Jerzy Semkow, the Toulouse Orchestra under Jaap van Zweden in Amsterdam and Yannick Nézet-Séguin in San Sebastián, the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne under Christian Zacharias, the SWR Baden-Baden Orchestra under Michael Gielen, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra under Hugh Wolff and Paavo Järvi, the Swiss-Italian Radio Orchestra under Charles Dutoit, the Tonkünstler Orchester under Kristjan Järvi, the Stuttgart Radio Orchestra under Roger Norrington, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra under Emmanuel Krivine, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal under Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Seoul Philharmonic under Myung-Whun Chung, the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Kazushi Ono and Vladimir Jurowski, the Swedish Radio Orchestra under Daniel Harding and the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Stéphane Denève in addition to recitals in London, Munich, Geneva, Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Rome, Lisbon, Brescia, Tokyo and Paris. Nicholas Angelich is a regular guest at the Verbier Festival and the Martha Argerich Project in Lugano. The musician made his debut at the BBC Proms in July 2009 with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

During his tours to countries throughout the world, Nicholas Angelich – a great interpreter of both classical and romantic works – has performed all of Beethoven’s sonatas and Liszt’s Années de pèlerinage cycle. The pianist also has a keen interest in 20th century music, first and foremost that of Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Bartók, Ravel, Messiaen, Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez, Éric Tanguy and Pierre Henry, who dedicated his Concerto for Piano without Orchestra to him.

Nicholas Angelich also has a keen interest in chamber music. He has performed with musicians including Gautier and Renaud Capuçon, Maxim Vengerov, Akiko Suwanai, Dmitry Sitkovetsky, Joshua Bell, Gérard Caussé, Daniel Müller-Schott, Wang Jian, the Paul Meyer Quarte, the Ysaÿe Quartet, the Prazak Quartet and the Ébène Quartet.

His discography includes: for Harmonia Mundi a Rachmaninoff programme; for Lyrinx a Ravel programme; and for Mirare Liszt’s Années de pèlerinage (Choc prize from the magazine Le Monde de la musique, CR recommendation of Classica Répertoire magazine) and a Beethoven programme (Op. 26, Waldstein sonata, Op. 111). For Virgin Classics he recorded a Brahms series featuring Trios with the Capuçon brothers (Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik), sonatas for violin and piano with Renaud Capuçon (Diapason d’Or and Choc from Le Monde de la musique, “Editor’s Choice” from Gramophone, Scherzo and Exceptional magazines) and two Brahms recitals (Choc in the  Monde de la musique/BBC Music Choice). His discography also includes a Beethoven recital with Akiko Suwanai (Decca) and Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 with Paavo Järvi and the Frankfurt Radio Orchestra (Virgin Classics). His most recent release was Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2, again with Paavo Järvi and the Frankfurt Radio Orchestra.
