Vanessa Wagner

© Caroline Doutre

Described by the daily newspaper Le Monde as “the most delightfully singular pianist of her generation”, Vanessa Wagner pursues a career in her own image, mixing classical recitals, contemporary creation, the practice of ancient instruments, chamber music, as well as transversal encounters with other artistic practices. In recent years, she has initiated collaborations with artists such as the electronic musicians Murcof and Molécule, the visual artist Quayola, the circus artist Yoann Bourgeois and the singer Arthur H. Very involved in the music of her time, she is the dedicatee of several pieces by Pascal Dusapin, François Meimoun, François Sarhan and Alex Nante. Renowned for her musical colours, the intensity of her playing and the richness of her touch, her sensitive and thoughtful interpretations, her vast and constantly renewed repertoire is the mirror of a personality that is always on the alert, patiently weaving links between universes that are too often compartmentalised.
