Bertrand Chamayou  piano

Bertrand Chamayou’s elegant piano playing is paralleled by his quite unique ability to devise a programme.

Absolute discretion in his private life and a level of integrity at the keyboard which others can only aspire to if they want to succeed. But if Bertrand Chamayou is a faithful knight in the service of his works in the noblest sense of the term, he is neither a censor nor a killjoy. His quest for legibility is never dull and his reverence for the score never implies detachment. With Saint-Saëns, you can expect a chivalrous approach, sweat, adrenaline and dazzling risk-taking. Although he believes that music rewards hard work, this does not negate inspiration, and it is primarily out of respect for the listener that he will not share a less than painstakingly perfect performance.
