Piano / France / Albania

A remarkably precocious pianist, Marie-Ange Nguci had already completed by the age of 16 her Master’s degree in Piano performance with first class honours by unanimity and distinction of the jury at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (CNSMDP), before receiving the Artist Diploma of Piano performance. Endlessly curious both musically and intellectually, she studied orchestra conducting during a year spent at Vienna’s famed Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, and is currently pursuing her studies in Doctorate of Music (PhD), as well as in Master’s degree of Musical Analysis and Musicology, at the CNSMDP and the Paris-Sorbonne University. She is also holding the Diploma of Ondes Martenot, as well as a Master’s degree in music pedagogy and the Certificate of Aptitude of Professor. Marie-Ange’s talents were recognized early on since she won her first competition, in 2011, with the First Prize at the Lagny-sur-Marne International Piano Competition (France). She was awarded in 2015 the First Prize at the MacKenzie Awards International Piano Competition in New York, and in 2018, she received the Grand Prix du Jury from the Société des Arts in Geneva. She is also the recipient of grants from the Foundation L’Or du Rhin, the ADAMI and the Meyer Foundations, the French American Piano Society, the International Academy of Music in the Principality of Liechtenstein, and the Yamaha Music Foundation. Marie-Ange's extensive repertoire ranges from baroque, to classical and romantic until contemporary - particularly attentive to the music of our time, she had the opportunity to work with composers such as Thierry Escaich, Bruno Mantovani, Graciane Finzi or Karol Beffa. Marie-Ange’s performances have taken her to leading concert venues such as the Philharmonie, the Cité de la Musique, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées or the Salle Cortot in Paris, the Palais de l’Athénée in Geneva, the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Elebash Hall in New York. She takes part in numerous festivals among which the Festival de piano de La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée in Nantes and Tokyo, the Chopin Festivals in Nohant and Bagatelle, the Radio France Festival in Montpellier, the Piano en Jacobins Festival, the Kissinger Sommer in Bad Kissingen, the Beethovenfest Bonn, the Ravinia Festival in Chicago. Marie-Ange Nguci has realized under the Mirare label a CD released in 2017, “En Miroir”, dedicated to a crossed portrait of piano works by composers Franck, Escaich, Bach/Busoni and Saint-Saëns. Praised by the critics, this recording has been awarded a "Choc de Classica" of the year 2018.
