Honored by the revered title of "Steinway Artist", Vincent LARDERET has attracted international recognition for the exceptional intensity of his performances. Praised for his “amazing sensitivity with the lyrical line” (The classical shop, UK) and his “multi-timbred” sound (Fanfare, USA) "makes the piano equal to an orchestra" (Classica, France) with a wide range of pianistic colors, The Star in Canada described: “his playing is remarkable for its ease as well as style. Larderet overcomes with panache." Nominated for the "International Classical Music Awards" 2012 and "Classical Revelation" by Adami winner at MIDEM 2003 in Cannes, he is also considered to be one of the leading French pianists of his generation.
