The most important thing for a musician? For Jean-Paul Gasparian, it’s passion, inspiration and freedom.

As a pianist, you not only have to have a strong inner desire to play music yourself, but this passion also means enjoying listening to it. And this is what the son of a married couple of pianists has been doing with great passion since childhood: Richter, Horowitz, Pollini, Gilels and Michelangeli are the heroes he still honours today. He also draws inspiration from the other arts, such as literature, painting and film. Freedom is what makes the difference – creating each piece anew and filling it with his own musical feelings, ideas and decisions. The pianist was born in Paris, but his Armenian roots mean a lot to him. For his debut concert at the Ruhr Piano Festival, he will be performing works by composers from the small but culturally significant Caucasus republic, including two by his father Gérard Gasparian.

Jean-Paul Gasparian

Jean-Paul issued in 2023 his fifth album, the first one for naïve. It is entirely dedicated to Debussy and has been described as « a major reading » that « squares the circle of musical perfection and artistic imagination » by Belgian Crescendo Magazine, which selected it among the 12 best classical recordings of the year. His previous albums, devoted to Rachmaninoff and Chopin, have been enthusiastically welcomed by the international press (« A New Masterstroke » – Le Figaro, « A Highly Accomplished Chopinist » – BBC Music Magazine).
