François Chaplin

François Chaplin trained at the Paris Conservatoire (CNSM) with the Bulgarian pianist Ventsislav Yankoff and with Jacqueline Robin (accompaniment and chamber music), and was unanimously awarded first prizes for piano and chamber music. He then followed the advanced course with Jean-Claude Pennetier.

He won the International Piano Competition in Senigallia (Italy), and received in 1989 the Mozart and Robert Casadesus Prizes at the International Competition in Cleveland. Those distinctions are the start of a brilliant international career.

François Chaplin now appears as a soloist in many of the world’s capitals, including Tokyo, Berlin, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Riga, Paris, Almaty and Mexico, to name but a few, and with many fine orchestras such as the Orchestre National de Lille, the Japan Philharmonic, the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic and the Orchestre National de Lorraine. He appears regularly at important festivals, including La Roque-d’Anthéron, the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Mexico, and the Yokohama International Festival in Japan. His vast discography is acclaimed by the national and international press. It includes recordings of all of Debussy’s work, Schubert’s Impromptus, and Chopin’s Nocturnes.
