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.

ICYMI: My thoughts on BBC Proms 5. Pelleas et Melisande twitter.com/MaryGNguyen/st…
My review of Glyndebourne’s semi-staging of Pelléas et Mélisande at the BBC Proms 5. Music and voices are beautifully performed, but sexual violence is misplaced on stage, again. What's the point? Just stop it. Honestly, can we put a stop to this, please? https://t.co/WXUELr02Jj pic.twitter.com/4l8xK1S3XT— Trendfem.com🌸🎶 (@MaryGNguyen) July 19, 2018
