Biography

Jacques Rouvier (born on January 18, 1947 in Marseille) is a French pianist. He studied at the Paris Conservatory with Jean Hubeau, Vlado Perlemuter, and Pierre Sancan. He took two Premiers Prix (first prizes): in piano performance (1965) and in chamber music (1967).

Rouvier was remarkably successful at piano competitions in his youth. He took first prize at both the Viotti International Music Competition in Vercelli and the Barcelona Competition in 1967. He then took third prize at the Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud International Competition (ex-aequo with Vladimir Viardo) in Paris in 1971, securing an international career.

In 1970 he founded a piano trio with Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Philippe Muller with whom he continues to perform. His recording of the complete works for piano by Maurice Ravel won the Grand Prix du disque.

In addition to his performing activities, Rouvier is a teacher at the Paris Conservatory, where he has instructed as a tenured professor since the age of 28. His former students include Hélène Grimaud and Arcadi Volodos.
