Notes and Editorial Reviews

The French pianist Kim Barbier has distinguished herself as a versatile artist who is as much at home with piano concertos as with the chamber music repertoire.

Kim Barbier was born in Paris, the daughter of French-Vietnamese parents, and grew up in Africa and southern France. After completing her diploma and “cycle de perfectionnement” at the Paris Conservatory under Pierre-Laurent Aimard, she studied with her highly esteemed professor and mentor Maria Curcio in London. Her other teachers include György Kurtag, Patrick Cohen, Odile Poisson, Theodore Paraskivesco, Leon Fleischer and Ferenc Rados. - Artist's website
