Revealed to the musical world by his first album « Rameau-Couperin » (Evidence Classics, 2018) , Clément Lefebvre is considered as one the most poetic French pianist of his generation by the critics or his peers.
He is prize winner of the Long Thibaud Crespin Piano Competition 2019, where his authentic personality was also noted. Previously, he won first prize and audience prize at the James Mottram Piano Competition of Manchester. These awards are the outcome of a musical journey that began since his early youth in the North of France, and then at Paris when he was only ten, with Billy Eidi who taught him all the bases of musical art. Then he studied under Marc Lys and Jean-Michel Dayez at Lille Conservatoire, Hortense Cartier-Bresson at Boulogne-Billancourt Conservatoire, and finally at the CNSM of Paris : student of Roger Muraro and Isabelle Dubuis, he also took classes with Claire Désert, Alain Planès, Pierre-Laurent Aimard… In addition to his high artistic standard instilled by his mentors, he owes in particular Roger Muraro his ability of asserting his musical thought with rigour, depth, but with expressive fantasy too, wether for clarity of the musical speech or sound creativity.
Laureate of Banque Populaire Foundation, Safran Foundation, Mécénat Musical Société Générale, Clément Lefebvre is invited to take part in many prestigious festivals and musical seasons : International Piano Festival of Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée de Nantes, Festival Chopin à Paris, Les Solistes à Bagatelle, Nohant Piano Festival, l’auditorium de Radio France, l’auditorium du Louvre, la Philharmonie de Paris… He also performs abroad : Beijing, Brussels, Amsterdam, Dublin, Berlin… As a soloist, he has the privilege to collaborate with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the Orchestre de la Garde Républicaine, and makes his debut with the National Brazilian Orchestra in October 2020.
The duo he forms with the pianist Alexandre Lory explores the most beautiful orchestral works through the art of transcription. As a sought after chamber musician, he is invited to share the stage with Anastasia Kobekina, Anne Queffélec, Philippe Bernold, Olivier Patey… It is with the violinist Shuichi Okada that he recorded an album devoted to sonatas and romances by Johannes Brahms and Robert & Clara Schumann (Mirare, 2019).
