Biography

Born in 1943, Jean-Pierre Armengaud began studying music at the age of five. Trained by teachers like Marcel Jacquinot, Pierre Sancan, and later by Jacques Fevrier and Reine Gianoli, he graduated as a concert pianist from the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris in 1965, and was awarded diplomas in the Italian International Competitions of Vercelli and Pozzoli. He received grants to study in Sienna, Salzburg and Moscow, and began an international career (Germany, Belgium, URSS, India, etc.) with particular fondness for the works of Beethoven, Schumann, Liszt, Debussy and Bartok. In France he appeared in numerous radio and television broadcasts, both as a pianist and sometimes as a producer. He plays frequendy with the French Radio Orchestras and at the Theatre des Champs-Elysees.

He has made eight recordings (Szymanowski, Denissov, Boulez, Satie, Janacek, etc.) and is in the process of preparing CD recordings of works by Prokofiev, Milhaud, Janacek, Richard Strauss, and Schnittke.
His extremely wide repertory extends from music for fortepiano to contemporary music, from the piano solo to the chamber music and the piano and orchestra repertory. He has performed with partners like Alain Meunier, Devy Erlih, the Parennin Quartet, Dominique Merlet, Jean-Claude Pennetier, Domi-nique de Williencourt, the BWV Trio…

But what distinguishes Jean-Pierre Armengaud is that he combined his musical studies with a brilliant university career, and is a graduate of the Institute of Political Studies in Paris.
