Nominated for the Victoires de la Musique Classique 2011 in the category "Best Recording of the Year" for the integral of chamber music with winds of Saint-Saëns performed with the soloists of the Orchestre de Paris, Laurent Wagschal is one of the most original and most brilliant pianists of his generation and he has been known for several years through its commitment to defend the repertoire of French music and some unfairly neglected composers.
He regularly performs in prestigious halls in Paris (Théâtre du Châtelet Theatre des ChampsElysees, Auditorium of the Musée d'Orsay, Radio-France), abroad (National Auditorium of Music in Madrid, Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Carnegie Hall in New York, Dongsoong Hall in Seoul, Tokyo Opera City Recital Hall), as well as in many festivals (Midem in Cannes, Festival Chopin in Bagatelle Festival Présence, Festival du Périgord Noir...).
He has won several international awards and has been a soloist with the Orchestre des Concerts Lamoureux, the Orchestre Pasdeloup, the Orchestre de la Cité Universitaire de Paris, the Orchestre d'Auvergne, the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra and the Classica Orchestra of Moscow.
His discography, warmly greeted by the press (Télérama, Le Monde, Diapason, Classica, Pianiste Magazine...), consists of twenty recordings from which include: a disc devoted to the piano works of Gabriel Pierné ; the 13 Nocturnes by Faure ; piano works of Florent Schmitt, the Chausson's Concert and Mendelssohn's Double Concerto with Nicolas Dautricourt and the Orchestre d’Auvergne ; chamber music of Debussy with the soloists of the Opera de Paris ; the complete works for violin and piano by Szymanowski with Nicolas Dautricourt.
