RÉMI GENIETDec. 6, 2020
“Instrumentally intimidating, intellectually astonishing, and musically overwhelming,” proclaimed Alain Lompech of Diapason about the young French pianist Remi Geniet. Laureate of numerous international competitions, notably second prize-winner at the 2013 Queen Elisabeth International Piano Competition at the age of twenty and the youngest prize-winner of the Bonn International Beethoven Competition, Geniet is quickly establishing himself as one of the most prominent pianists of his generation, performing regularly across Europe, Asia and North America, including at the Montreal Bach Festival. Among the many prestigious international festivals that invite him are Verbier, Colmar, MecklenburgVorpommern, St Petersburg Arts Square International Winter Festival, and La Folle Journée in Japan. Both his debut all-Bach CD, which received a Diapason D’OR of the Year in 2015, and his second release of four Beethoven sonatas, both on the Mirare label, have been unanimously praised by the critics.
