Performer (piano)

Fabrice Boulanger starts his musical studies at the Conservatoire National in the region of Nantes, his hometown. He receives various prizes: chamber music, musical training, sight-reading and piano in Jacques Bisciglia’s class. He also studies analysis, music history, organology and quickly dedicates himself to chamber music; a specialty that he thoroughly refines with Hélène Salomé, once Edwin Fischer’s student. Also drawn to voice, he follows Yva Barthélémy’s teaching methods for whom he will become her assistant. Boulanger and Marie Devellerau (soprano) receive unanimously le Prix de la communauté des radios publiques de la langue française. He regularly participates in various creations and gives numerous solo performances as well as chamber music concerts in France, Europe and Latin America. With Corinne Pothier-Denis (violin) and Frank Reynaud (cello), he founds le Trio Fabrice Boulanger. Moreover, his passion for lyrical art brings him toward a career as a vocal coach. Then, by Michel Sénéchal’s request, Boulanger attends l’École d’art lyrique de l’Opéra de Paris and le Centre de la formation lyrique where he works in collaboration with distinguished musicians such as Christa Ludwig, Gérard Souzay, Régine Crespin, Marcel Landowski and Janine Reiss. Boulanger spends little time after l’atelier lyrique de l’Opéra de Lyon since Claire Gibault entrusts him with the production of a concert on Louis Aragon, in charge of the staging and the musical arrangements. Fabrice Boulager is regularly invited to the Laboratorio voci in musica in Rome (directed by Claire Gibault). Since 2002, he is a role professor at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon and is invited on a regular basis at the Opéra national de Lyon.
