The vibrant young Canadian pianist Jean-François Latour has established a reputation as a poetic and imaginative artist with brilliant technique and a strong personal voice who can communicate across cultures and generations. Leon Fleisher, with whom he studied at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, calls Latour “a highly gifted and intelligent young artist with fine musical instincts.” His rapidly growing prominence on the international scene brought M. Latour engagements in Paris, Toulouse, Geneva, Hamburg, Brussels, Washington, Baltimore, and Chicago. In 2005, he made his Asian debut with performances in Japan and China. As an active performer in Canada and in the United States, Jean-François Latour is regularly invited by several orchestras and festivals. M. Latour's live performances have been broadcast by the Radio Suisse-Romande, Italian National Radio-RAI, Belgian Radio-Television, WFMT-Chicago, Vermont Public Radio, and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Interested in interdisciplinary arts, M. Latour collaborates with the Compagnie Marie Chouinard for the choreographic work “24 Preludes by Chopin”.
