About

After graduating from the Conservatoire de Paris (CNSMDP) where he obtained ten first prizes, Jean-François Zygel won the first prize in the International Piano Improvisation Competition held by the City of Lyons in 1982. He then started a ground-breaking career as a concert improviser, sharing the stage with dancers, actors, and musicians from the jazz scene, pop and world musicians.
 
Jean-François Zygel is artist in residence for the third consecutive year at the Philharmonie Luxembourg and will perform over 120 concerts in France and abroad during the 2017-2018 season.
Jean-François Zygel is famous in France and elsewhere as one of the best specialists in providing live soundtracks for silent films. He is well-known in France for his TV shows and radio broadcasts where he defends his classical music and the art of improvisation with both humor and passion. In 2003 he founded the piano improvisation class at the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP).
His latest album, L'Alchimiste, will be released later this year by Sony.
