Notes and Editorial Reviews
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 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.
Vincent is regularly invited to appear, in recital or with orchestra, at festivals in France and around the world. He appears frequently as a chamber musician, with renowned artists such as Renaud Capuçon and Augustin Dumay.
