Claire Chevallier

Claire Chevallier (°1969), a celebrated pianist of solo recitals, chamber concerts and concerts with orchestra, is world-renowned for her performances and recordings. Chevallier is specialized in historically informed performance: she re-actualizes music on old instruments and also has her own collection of historical pianos, consisting of six grand pianos from the period 1840-1920. Chevallier teaches at the ‘Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles‘ and served on the panel of judges for the ‘Liszt Concours’ in Utrecht and the International Chopin Competition of Warschau, amongst others. She’s an expert of the works of French composers as Ravel, Debussy, Satie and Poulenc. Her recording of Ravels Concerto pour la main gauche (together with Anima Eterna) is still a landmark in the world of classical music. Chevallier has also extensively worked with performing and other artists, such as Rosas, David Claerbout, Josse De Pauw and Jan Lauwers (Needcompany).
