Théo Fouchenneret

Musician

At twenty-four, he won the first prize at the Geneva International Competition in November 2018.

After brilliant studies at the CRR of Nice, his hometown, in the class of Christine Gastaud, he continues to benefit from an excellent teaching alongside exceptional pedagogues who will forge the last contours of this complete musician. He obtained the highest distinctions at the CNSM in Paris from professors such as Alain Planès, Hortense Cartier-Bresson and Jean-Frédéric Neuburger. In 2013, he won 1st prize at the Gabriel Fauré International Piano Competition, which gave him the opportunity to tackle a repertoire that was dear to him.

The year 2018 marks a turning point in the career of the young pianist. A few months before triumphing at the Geneva International Competition, he won the 1er Prizes as well as five special prizes at the Lyon International Chamber Music Competition with the Messiaen Trio consisting of David Petrlik (violin) and Volodia Van Keulen (cello). This brilliant group is currently in residence at the Singer-Polignac Foundation.

If Théo is regularly the guest of radio and television broadcasts, it is of course the scene which carries its main interpretations. Many French cinemas have already applauded him (Louis Vuitton Foundation, Nice Opera, Dijon Opera, etc.) and his talent is exported abroad (Sala Verdi in Milan, Antonine University in Beirut, Philharmonie de Xi ' year, Toppan Hall in Tokyo, Izumi Hall in Osaka, Munetsugu Hall in Nagoya, National Concert Hall in Taipei ...). Today invited by many festivals (Deauville Festival, Roque d'Anthéron Festival, Folle Journée de Nantes, Cully Classique, Klavier Ruhr Festival ...), he shares the stage with the most gifted musicians of his generation .

Théo released a first CD in 2013 at Sonare Art Office, including the Sonata of Franck and the 2nd sonata by Fauré alongside the violinist Tatsuki Narita. In 2015, he shared the recording with Claves Records with cellist Astrig Siranossian. More recently, the first CD of the Messiaen Trio with clarinetist Raphael Sévère appeared in 2018 at Mirare editions and naturally devoted itself to Quartet for the end of time by Olivier Messiaen, as well as Court Studies from the Tempest by Thomas Adès.
