Biography

Jan Michiels plays a repertoire from Bach till today, combining styles in his programmes with a view to bringing new insights and exploring new horizons. Evidently contemporary music plays a crucial role and he is a fervent defender of new Flemish music to boot. He collaborated with composers such as Kurtág, Lachenmann, Spahlinger, Huber, Boesmans, Laporte, Swinnen, Brewaeys, Defoort, Vanhecke, etc. He took care of countless recordings and creations. Remarkable is also that Ligeti’s total oeuvre for piano belongs to his repertoire. As a soloist in contemporary music he performed with conductors such as P.Eötvös, K.Ono, H.Zender, J.Wood, L.Pfaff, A.Tamayo, E.Siebens, L.Zagrosek, S.Edwards, P.Rundel, S.Asbury. Jan Michiels also forms a piano duo with Inge Spinette and performs as a member of the Prometheus Ensemble or as partner of dance companies such as Rosas. He also teaches at the Conservatory of Brussels. One of his most important sources of inspiration is Nono’s “Prometeo… - a tragedia dell’ ascolto” from the vantage point of the piano repertoire.
