With Bampton Classical Opera’s new production of Nicolò Isouard’s Cinderella showing at St John Smith Square this Tuesday evening (September 18), its Co-Artistic Director Jeremy Gray sheds some light on his experience at Bampton, the company’s future projects and staging Isouard’s opera.
French pianist, Jean-Paul Gasparian studied at the Paris Conservatoire before finishing his performance diploma at the Royal College of Music in London. When he was 18, he participated in the Verbier Academy, and ever since he has performed with orchestras across Europe including France, Serbia, Montenegro, and Germany. In August 2017, he made his solo recital debut and released a debut album featuring Rachmaninoff Etudes, Scriabin, and Prokofiev. Here, Gasparian discusses his relationship with the ‘Russian School’ and the ‘French tradition’ of classical music, and the key influences behind his new album.
