Simon Ghraichy Weekend: First Evening

Simon Ghraichy is a Steinway artist.

“The pianist who shakes up the classical” , Le Figaro

French of Lebanese and Mexican origin, pianist Simon Ghraichy chose Paris as his adopted city after a cosmopolitan childhood. A student of Michel Béroff, Daria Hovora and Hortense Cartier-Bresson at the Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris CNSMDP, he continued his training with Tuija Hakkila at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. His virtuosity, his strong opinions and his musical chameleonism allowed him to quickly develop an international career and perform on five continents.
Thus, we have been able to hear it in prestigious halls such as the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, the philharmonies of Paris, Berlin and Saint Petersburg, 'Royal Opera of Versailles, the Gran Teatro Nacional of Lima, the Teatro Mayor of Bogota, the Istanbul Opera as well as in different halls in France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Greece, Norway, Sweden, Finland , Russia, Thailand, Indonesia, Mexico, Cuba, Chile, Brazil, Lebanon, Egypt, Australia...
He is a regular guest at numerous festivals such as the Besançon Festival, the Bard Music Festival in New York, the Baalbeck International Festival (Lebanon), the Aix-en-Provence Festival, Violon sur le Sable in Royan , the Nuits du Château de la Moutte, the Festival de la Chaise-Dieu, Musicalta (Alsace), the Biarritz Piano Festival, Killington Music Festival (USA), the Ciudad de las Ideas (Mexico)... He also participates in unique projects such as La Nuit Blanche organized by the Institut de France or even choreographed recitals with star dancers Marie-Agnès Gillot (La Seine Musicale), Dorothée Gilbert (Toulouse Festival) and Elisa Carillo (Berliner Staatsballet)...
Passionate about contemporary music, he collaborates extensively with today's composers, thus contributing to the genesis of numerous works. He is notably the dedicatee of a concerto for piano and orchestra - Fractalis - by the Mexican composer Gabriela Ortiz, of which he gave the world premiere with the Orchester National de Bretagne. He is also the dedicatee of a sonata for augmented piano and live computer by the Italian composer Jacopo Baboni Schilingi which he created in November 2023 at the Auditorio Santa Cecilia in Rome.
If his recording beginnings are essentially around romantic composers (Liszt and Schumann), from his exclusive collaboration with the Deutsche Grammophon label two albums have been released, HERITAGES and 33 , which reflect his multiple influences through works by Villa-Lobos, Lecuona, Gottschalk, Marquez, de Falla, Albeniz, Granados among others.

Program :

Works by Rameau, Bach, Liszt and Albeniz.
