Biography

The French pianist Claire Chevallier studied at the conservatories of Nancy, Strasbourg, Paris, and Brussels. During her studies, which she found to a large extent boring, a master class by Jos van Immerseel fired her fascination with the historical fortepiano, and ever since she has been developing her expertise of the historical keyboard to a rare degree. Her own collection of French fortepianos holds five instruments, covering the period 1842-1920. In 1996 Claire Chevallier participated in a European tour with dance company Rosas in a production inspired by Mozart’s concert arias. She has been playing as a soloist ever since at important venues in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Japan. In 2003 she recorded with tenor Jan Van Elsacker a CD with Lieder by Robert Schumann. Furthermore she made recordings of solo works by Eric Satie, compositions for two pianos by French composers and for piano four-handed by Sergei Rachmaninov, both with Jos van Immerseel, as well as the concerto for the left hand by Maurice Ravel with the orchestra Anima Eterna.
