Pierre-Laurent Aimard


The musical sphere of the star pianist from Lyon is boundless. Discovered by Olivier Messiaen at the age of twelve, he has worked with contemporaries such as Boulez, Stockhausen and Ligeti. But his reinterpretations of works by Bach, Mozart and Beethoven also have worldwide reference status.


Follow the Footsteps of Franz Liszt

A whole life captured in the sound of the piano: Pierre-Laurent Aimard follows in the footsteps of Franz Liszt from his early trips to Switzerland to the old Abbé's melancholy sojourns in Tivoli near Rome. The 100 fountains of the Villa d’Este and the waterfalls of the Swiss Alps inspired the genius of Romantic piano music to write some of his most brilliant piano pieces.
