Gwendal Giguelay

Piano

Gwendal Giguelay studied music in Rennes before joining the CNSMD in Lyon and then the CNSMD in Paris where he obtained his master's degree in piano. He also studied with Jean-Claude Pennetier and the Ysaÿe Quartet.

He leads a solo career in France and abroad and participates in various events and festivals. Gwendal has maintained a privileged relationship with the world of dance for many years and collaborates with companies such as the Opéra National de Paris and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. He is also a vocal conductor, and performs with many opera singers. 
Holder of the Certificate of Fitness for Teaching, Gwendal Giguelay teaches piano and chamber music at the CRD of Montreuil and the Conservatoire du XVIIè arrondissement de Paris. He is also a trainer at the CND in Pantin and the ESMD in Lille. Finally, Gwendal devotes himself to musical improvisation - which he studied with Jean-François Zygel - and in particular to the musical accompaniment of silent films. He can also be seen in Philippe Béziat's film Noces (2011).

Gwendal would like to thank the Mécénat Société Générale, the Académie musicale de Villecroze, Musique à Flaine and the Fondation Meyer for their support.
