Pascal Rogé exemplifies the finest in French pianism; his playing of Poulenc, Satie, Fauré, Saint-Saëns or Ravel in particular is characterised by its elegance, beauty and delicate phrasing – his name is simply synonymous with the best playing. Born in Paris, Rogé became an exclusive Decca recording artist at the age of 17. He has won many prestigious awards including two Gramophone awards, a Grand Pix du Disque and an Edison Award for his interpretations of the Ravel and Saint-Saëns concertos.
Pascal Rogé has performed in almost every major concert hall in the world. Some of the orchestras he has appeared with include the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony, L’Orchestre de Paris, L’Orchestre National de Radio France, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, the NHK Symphony Orchestra Tokyo , the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Leipzig Gewandhaus and all the major London orchestras. He appears regularly in the United States and is a frequent guest artist in Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and Japan. Among his recent British engagements are recitals at Wigmore Hall, Symphony Hall Birmingham and the Queen Elizabeth Hall where he is a frequent guest of the International Piano Series.
