Célimène Daudet – Haïti mon amour

This Franco-Haitian pianist presents a culturally rich program that combines works by early 20th-century Haitian composers with pieces from the European classical repertoire.

Pianist Célimène Daudet comes from two cultures, French and Haitian. She is a soloist whose playing and artistic commitment are recognized by the public and the international press. She has performed all over the world including Carnegie Hall in New York, the Konzerthaus in Vienna and the Philharmonie de Paris.

Célimène Daudet has made regular appearances in reputed French venues  (Folle journée de Nantes, Festival Variations, Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo, Musicales de Cambrai, Piano en Valois, Festival de Pâques d’Aix…). She is also a regular guest on radio broadcasts (Radio Classique, France Musique, France Inter, France Culture, Fip) and television.

Her repertoire also includes the premiere of several works dedicated to her: most recently Nombres by Benoît Menut, Anima-Alias with live computer and breathing sensor by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi and she will premiere in 2021 the concerto for piano and orchestra by Christian Rivet.

She is the founder of the Haiti Piano Project launched in 2017 with the goal of bringing a grand piano to Haiti and creating the first International Piano Festival. This project has been widely covered by the press throughout the world.

Trained at the Superior National Conservatories of Music and Dance in Lyon and Paris, then at the Banff Centre in Canada, she was awarded several times, among which, the International Pro Musicis Prize, the Jean Français piano prize and was named Artist Generation Spedidam. She has received the support of the Safran Foundation for Music and her career has been rewarded with the Senate medal. She has also been named as a Young Leader since 2018.
