The 14-year old Québécois classical piano sensation Daniel Clarke Bouchard has been invited to perform live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next week and the show will be broadcast on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Following the release of his debut recording Scènes d’enfants on ATMA Classique last November, Daniel made several high-profile media appearances on Canadian television, including George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, Canada AM and Tout le monde en parle. The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be his first appearance on syndicated U.S. television, and the Ellen show has an average of 4 million viewers per episode.
On Scènes d’enfants, Daniel Clarke Bouchard performs a personal selection of works by Mendelssohn, Schubert, and Beethoven. The recording includes an improvisation on Mozart’s Piano Variations on “Ah vous dirai-je, Maman,” played on two pianos by Bouchard and his mentor, the famed jazz pianist Oliver Jones. Scènes d’enfants topped the Canadian classical charts for several weeks in 2014. A short video from the ATMA recording session with Mr. Jones can be seen here.
