Award-winning French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet enjoys a prolific recording and international concert career. He regularly works with The Cleveland, San Francisco Symphony, BBC Symphony and London Philharmonic orchestras, NHK Symphony Orchestra, and collaborates with many renowned conductors across the world.

Bavouzet records exclusively for Chandos. His most recent release, A Musical Tribute to Pierre Sancan with BBC Philharmonic Orchestra under Yan Pascal Tortelier, won the Gramophone Editor’s Choice and Diapason d’Or awards.
