Following his success at the 2004 Long-Thibaud Competition, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger quickly became in demand as an interpreter known for the extreme variety of his repertoire from Bach to composers of the twenty-first century. He performs with the world’s most prestigious orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris (with which he toured Asia in 2013), and NHK Symphony Orchestra and works with conductors such as Lorin Maazel, Michael Tilson Thomas, Jonathan Nott, Osmo Vänskä, Ingo Metzmacher, and Pierre Boulez. He performs at leading international festivals (Verbier, Lucerne, La Roque d'Anthéron, Saratoga, La Jolla Music Society) and as a chamber musician, performs with the leading musicians of his generation. In 2014 the Auditorium du Louvre held a series of seven concerts entitled ‘Jean-Frédéric Neuburger and Friends’ featuring him as a performer and composer. His recordings have received great acclaim: the 2008 Live at Suntory Hall CD received a "Choc" in Le Monde de la Musique and his recording of the piano concertos by Ferdinand Hérold received the "Choc" in Classica magazine. His most recent CD—of Ravel solo pieces—was released in October 2013. Born in Paris, Mr. Neuburger received an intense and varied musical education in piano, composition, and organ before joining the Paris Conservatoire, from which he graduated with five 'premiers prix' in 2005. Since 2009, he has taught the renowned Classe d’Accompagnement at the Paris Conservatoire. He started his career in the US with Young Concert Artists.
