Jean-Philippe Sylvestre – Liszt, Ravel, Beethoven

Following his success at the Berlin Philharmonie, the pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre is back in Quebec for a thrilling recital at Maison symphonique! With “dazzling technique” and “real imagination”, Sylvestre has already left his mark around the world. He is described by conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin as a “poet of the piano”.

Born in Ste-Julie, Québec, Sylvestre started his musical studies at the age of four. He is graduate of the École de musique Vincent-d’Indy and the University of Montreal where he obtained a bachelor with Marc Durand. In 2005, he obtained an Artist Diploma from The Glenn Gould Professional School of The Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto under the tutelage of John Perry. After having studied many years in Italy at the International Accademia Pianistica ‘’Incontri col Maestro’’ and in Germany under the direction of Louis Lortie, he now lives in Berlin. Following intensive coachings with Michel Dalberto, Jacques Rouvier, Gerhard Oppitz and Jerome Lowenthal, Jean-Philippe Sylvestre possesses a vast musical expertise.

The program features a number of audience favorites, including Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No.2, Ravel’s Miroirs and Pavane pour une infante défunte, and of course, André Mathieu’s iconic Concerto de Québec.
