    • The Illustrious Alain Lefèvre at the 2022 Orford Music Festival

      A brilliant virtuoso of contrasts, pianist Alain Lefèvre performs a recital entirely devoted to the French repertoire, featuring the modest grandeur of Franck’s Prelude, Fugue et Variation op. 18. Among Debussy’s most beautiful works, you will find the ethereal Rêverie, the famous Clair de lune and the inescapable Arabesques, without forgetting Ravel’s masterful Valse where the interpreter becomes an “orchestra”, in this version transcribed for solo piano.





      Hailed as a smashing and arresting virtuoso, a pianist who breaks the mold and who stands out from the typical trends and artifices offered on the international scene, Alain Lefèvre pursues a sparkling career, having performed in over forty countries to prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall, Théatre des Champs-Élysées, Théatre du Châtelet, Salle Pleyel, Palais Princier de Monaco, Teatro Colon, Palacio de Bellas Artes, Megaron, Odeon of Herodes Atticus and participated to numerous international festivals including SPAC, Ravinia, Wolf Trap, Athens, Epidaurus, Istanbul , Cervantino, Mozart Plus, Orford Musique, Domaine Forget, Lanaudière and Expo 2010 Shanghaï, to name but a few. 

      Alain Lefèvre has appeared with major symphonic and chamber orchestras worldwide including the Royal Philharmonic, London Mozart Players, Orchestre National de France, Philharmonie de Lorraine, Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, Philadelphia Orchestra, Detroit Symphony and many more. 

      From the beginning of his career, Alain Lefèvre has included, commissioned and battled for the music of our time. Henri Dutilleux, John Corigliano, Pierre Max Dubois, Walter Boudreau, François Dompierre, Alain Payette and Alexander Brott, are but a few of the composers he worked with and has added to his core repertoire. We owe him the rehabilitation of the forgotten composer and pianist of genius, the “Canadian Mozart”, André Mathieu, which works he also revived on stage in New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Shanghaï and many other cities worldwide. He was music director, composer and interpreter for the motion picture: “L’Enfant prodige” (The Child Prodigy), on the life of André Mathieu.

      In 2018, Warner Classics signed him as an exclusive recording artist, releasing this year its first title, « My Paris Years », on their prestigious label.

      Mr. Lefèvre is Officer to the Order of Canada, Chevalier of the National Order of Quebec, Chevalier of the Pléiade Order, and also won the prestigious AIB Award held in London, for – International personality of the year – Radio, hosting programs on classical music, broadcasted on ICI Musique, Radio-Canada.
