Philippe Hattat


Born in 1993, Philippe Hattat began his musical studies at the age of eight at the Conservatoire de Levallois-Perret. In 2003, he entered the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris in piano class, then in 2006 in accompaniment class. Since September 2011, he joined several classes at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris: piano with Jean-François Heisser, accompaniment with Jean-Frédéric Neuburger, and in 2014, chamber music in the class of Itamar Golan.

He also studied composition and orchestration with Michel Merlet. He practices harpsichord and organ since 2008 with Benjamin Steens, as well as cello between 2004 and 2014. In October 2014, he joined Pierre Pincemaille's Organ Improvisation class at the CRR of Saint-Maur-des- Fossés, and obtained his prize in this discipline in June 2016. Very involved in contemporary creation, he has recently participated in several world premieres, such as Olivier Greif's Imago Mundi and Hölderlin- Lieder cycle, as well as the partial world premiere of Philippe Manoury's Etudes pour piano, with Jean-Frédéric Neuburger during the August 2016 edition of the Berlioz Festival. His musical horizon extends to the study and practice of medieval music (Gregorian chant, improvised vocal polyphonies) and to traditional music from outside Europe (practice of the gamelan from Central Java, study of Georgian vocal polyphonies with ethnomusicologist Simha Arom, study of traditional Zoroastrian songs).

He is a laureate of the Claude Bonneton International Piano Competition of Sète 2010 (1st prize and public prize), of the International Piano Competition of Orleans 2016 (Special Mention Prize Ricardo Viñes, Special Mention Prize Alberto Ginastera, and Composition Prize André Chevillon Yvonne Bonnaud) and of the International Competition Giorgio Cambissa 2016. Philippe Hattat is interested in many other fields of knowledge (physical sciences, geology, philosophy, archaeology, anthropology), with a predilection for comparative linguistics and etymology. He is in residence at the Fondation Singer-Polignac.
