DELPHINE  BARDIN 

                                             PIANO         

 

 "Delphine Bardin offers a splendid perspective both intimist and dreamy, she plays the chiaroscuro without ever overstating it, she takes us to a unreal world with an incredible softness …" Gérard Pangon, Radio Classique, Juin 2010
 
Delphine Bardin's sound of the piano is magnificent: density, clarity, carnal softness radiate with extraordinary shining, which makes the 13 Barcarolles of G. Fauré to a completely new way of playing… She has exceptional pianistic abilities, and she succeeds to produce colours, shades, clear phrases to bring them up to an apex of intensity… Diapason Music Review, Alain Lompech, May 2010

 Delphine Bardin started playing the piano at the age of five. She was taught by Paule Grimaldi in Tours, France and attended the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique at the age of fifteen.

There she won not only the Piano and Chamber Music first prizes but also those for Piano Accompaniment and Vocal Accompaniment.

She went on to study piano as a graduate at the Conservatory under Pierre-Laurent Aimard, and chamber music under Christian Ivaldi.

In 1996 she was awarded the Yvonne Lefébure exhibition, which allowed her to acquire her own concert instrument, a vital asset for the artistic development of a young talent.

In Vevey, Switzerland, in 1997, Delphine Bardin won the Clara Haskil prize, one of the most prestigious piano competitions in the world.

Numerous solo engagements followed in which her precise virtuosic mastery of the instrument, the sensitivity of her playing and her musical intelligence attracted the attention of audiences throughout Switzerland, Canada, Germany and France.

In 1999 she was awarded the Bunkamura Prize and was named Laureate of the “Fondation d’entreprise Groupe Banque Populaire”.

As a rising star in 2001-2002, Delphine Bardin was invited as a soloist to Birmingham, to the Cologne Philharmonic, to Carnegie Hall in New York, to Amsterdam’s  Concertgebouw, to the Cité de la Musique in Paris, to the Wigmore Hall in London and to the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.

Since then, Delphine Bardin has been travelling the world both as a chamber musician and soloist playing in France, Europe, South America, Africa and Asia. She has also formed two duos: one with the cellist Ophélie Gaillard, winner of a Victoire de la Musique award in 2002, and another with Sarah Louvion, First Prize winner at the Kobe International Festival in Japan and Flute soloist with the Frankfurt Opera.    Delphine Bardin has recorded a Mozart and Schumann CD for Claves, with the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne under the direction de Jésus Lopez Cobos.
