THIS IS MY STORY

A French pianist born in Mulhouse (Alsace), Emmanuelle Stéphan inherited her passion for piano from her first teacher, Russian: Professor Yuri Klempert, a student of Isaac Zetel, himself a pupil of the great founder of the Russian piano school: Heinrich Neuhaus.

Emmanuelle has always been keen on working with great masters who represent the legacy of an authentic tradition of interpretation. She chose to continue her studies in the United States at the Juilliard School (New York) and in France at the Schola Cantorum (Paris) where she entered in 2016. 

She is a laureate of several international competitions including a Second Prize in New York in 2017, and then rewarded by a concert in the mythical Carnegie Hall.

 

In 2017, she made her first recording, of Francis Poulenc's music, alongside his sole pupil, the great pianist Gabriel Tacchino, who according to some "represents the last legend of the great French piano playing". This highly acclaimed recording, published by Warner Classics / Erato, has been described as "a beautiful passing of the baton".

Since then, Emmanuelle Stéphan started an international career both in Italy in Venice where she performed for the public of the "Società Veneziana Di Concerti" in the dazzling "Scuola Grande Di San Giovanni Evangelista", and in the Middle East in Abu Dhabi, as well as in China and Latin America on a tour with Mozart's Concerto No. 12 in A major. In Italy, the Toscana Cultura association and the French Institute of Florence granted her the Ponte Vecchio Prize 2019, an award attributed to personalities from the artistic and cultural world. Her performance at the Palazzo Lensi also earned her the Enrico Caruso Medal.

For the next season, among other events, Emmanuelle will give two debut recitals in Warsaw in a program dedicated to Polish composer Frederic Chopin, while being invited to take part as a guest on 22nd July 2020 in the festival of France Music to be broadcasted over July and August 2020.

MY CREDO

To my sister Estelle, who inspired this text in tribute to classical music, eternal music:

"There are so many ideas, emotions, lives, which no word could ever summarize. But music enables us to get to the bottom of things and of our dreams. As a pianist, I need to share this music, to move you, make you dream, be in harmony, transmit this magnificent human heritage. Let’s dream and feel together, this is my personal credo."
