French pianist Lucie de Saint Vincent has enjoyed a bustling start to her career specializing in historical fortepiano performance practice. She is the recipient of the Premier Prix Musical 2013 of The Royaumont Foundation and the Swiss Ambassador to France. She completed her modern piano studies first in the conservatory in her hometown of Perpignan and later in Paris under Françoise Thinat and Denis Pascal. The pursuit of her Masters degree brought Lucie to the Netherlands in 2004 where she studied with Paolo Giacometti at the Utrecht Conservatory. Before her completion of the degree with Honors in 2008, Lucie was given the opportunity to spend one year studying at the Liszt Academy in Budapest with Professor Lantos. Having always been attracted to the authentic performance approach, Lucie decided to explore deeper in this field and began studying fortepiano with Bart van Oort at The Royal Conservatory in The Hague, where she earned both Bachelors and Masters Diplomas in 2010 and 2012 respectively.
Since 2007 Lucie participates regularly at the professional trainings of L’Abbaye de Royaumont in France which brought her to work with Pierre Goy, Aline Zylberajch and Menno van Delft. These sessions inspired her to discover, research and perform unknown French classical repertoire, which she now fervently tries to bring to light in her performances. Lucie de Saint Vincent gives regular concerts in Europe as a soloist, chamber musician, and as an accompanist on piano, fortepiano, harpsichord and clavichord. Her performances have included regular recitals as part of the Utrecht Festival Oude Muziek (Fringe), Vredenburg Utrecht, the Dordrecht Bach Festival, Les Invalides in Paris, Le Musée d’Art et d’Histoire de Geneva, L’Abbaye de Royaumont (Fr) and in the Bethanian Klooster in Amsterdam.
During the Burenmarkt Lucie will play together with Kristen. Hopefully she could and will use the piano at the farm house. For listing and more information contact her via: her blog.
