Alain Lefèvre

1962 -

Origin: France / Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Classical Music

Born in Poitiers, France, Alain Lefèvre moved to Montréal with his family at a very early age. Introduced to the piano by his clarinet-playing father at 4, the child virtuoso won first prize at the Canadian Music Competition two years later. He also gave his first recital at the Grand Théâtre, in Québec City, around the same time. At 17, he entered the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Paris, studying under Pierre Sancan, Pierre Max Dubois and Geneviève Joy. A stunning performer, Lefèvre has also recorded a string of records featuring original material - Fidèles insomnies was released 2006, and Jardin d'images in 2009. The following year, the musician served as musical director on L'enfant prodige, a biopic retracing the troubled life and times of famous Quebec pianist André Mathieu.
