Renowned French pianist Pascal Rogé is Trinity Laban's Distinguished Artist in Residence. Pascal teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate students in masterclasses and individual one to one tuition.
Deniz Gelenbe, former Head of the Piano Department, said of the appointment: "Pascal is one of the most gifted pianists of our time, and our students will learn so much from him - his Debussy, Fauré, Ravel and Poulenc are some of the finest recordings of this repertoire in the catalogue."
Rogé first appeared in public in 1960 with a performance of Claude Debussy's Preludes. He won the piano prize at the Paris Conservatory and worked for several years with Julius Katchen. At seventeen, he gave his first recitals in major European cities, landing an exclusive contract with Decca in the process.
He also performs chamber works, with the Pasquier Trio, and with musicians such as Pierre Amoyal or Michel Portal, with whom he recorded Poulenc and Tchaikovsky. He gives recitals worldwide, in all the major centres.Visit Website
