Neuburger, Jean-Frédéric

Born in Paris in 1986, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger received an intense and varied musical education in piano, composition and organ before joining the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris at the age of thirteen. On graduating from the CNSM with Five ‘Premier Prix’ he went on to study composition with Michael Jarrell and Pascal Dusapin in Geneva.

He has, since then established himself as one of the most gifted musicians of his generation, both as a composer and an interpreter known for the extreme variety of his repertoire.

Jean-Frédéric is regularly commissioned by festivals and musical institutions such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Evian Festival, Radio-France, Long-Thibaud International Competition, Folle Journée de Nantes and his works have already been performed by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre de Paris under Christoph von Dohnányi as well as by the Chorus and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Pascal Rophé. His chamber music works have been played by Henri Demarquette, François Salque, Nicolas Dautricourt, Lise Berthaud, Raphaël Sévère, Bertrand Chamayou in venues such as the Lucerne Festival, The Sage Gateshead, the Lincoln Center, and Musikverein Wien.

He performs with the world’s most prestigious orchestras (New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse) and works with such distinguished conductors as François-Xavier Roth, Paavo Jarvi, David Zinman, Jonathan Nott and Michael Tilson Thomas. He also worked closely with Pierre Boulez, particularly on the composer’s second piano sonata. In 2014, the Auditorium du Louvre dedicated a series of seven concerts to him entitled ‘Jean-Frédéric Neuburger and Friends.’

Jean-Frédéric Neuburger is invited by the most prestigious international festivals (Verbier, Lucerne, Klavier-Festival Ruhr, La Roque d'Anthéron, Saratoga, La Jolla Music Society) and as a chamber musician performs with the leading musicians of his generation including Modigliani Quartet, Bertrand Chamayou, Renaud Capuçon, Tatjana Vassiljeva and Raphaël Sévère.

Dedicating a large part of his performing activities to contemporary music, Jean-Frédéric has premiered several important works including Echo-Daimonon, Philippe Manoury’s concerto for piano and electronics with the Orchestre de Paris under the direction of Ingo Metzmacher (2012) as well as works by Bruno Mantovani, Phillip Maintz and Yves Chauris. 

His many recordings have received great acclaim from French and international critics: the 2008 "Live at Suntory Hall" CD (featuring the Liszt Sonata) received a "Choc" in Le Monde de la Musique and his recording of the piano concerti by Ferdinand Hérold received the "Choc" in Classica Magazine.

Published by Durand (Universal Music Publishing) since 2012, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger received the Lili and Nadia Boulanger prize from the Académie des Beaux Arts and the Hervé Dugardin prize from the Sacem in 2015.
