New Naïve signing, and rising star of the piano, Guillaume Vincent's first recording is dedicated to the demanding Rachmaninov complete Preludes.

Born in Annecy in 1991, Guillaume Vincent took up the piano at the age of 7 and gave his first recital three years later. At only 16 he was unanimously awarded his premier prix for piano, and he also received his diploma of higher education.

He continued his studies in Paris with Jean-François Heisser and Marie-Josèphe Jude (piano) and Yves Henry (harmony). Supported by his teachers, in 2011 he obtained his artist’s diploma (Diplôme d’Artiste Interprète).

He has already won many awards, including Prix de l’Orchestre
Read more National de France at the Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud competition (2009) and First Prize in the International Adelia Alieva Piano Competition (2010). He was nominated for the ‘Révélation Classique 2010’ award by the ADAMI.
