SJE Arts Next Generation Series 2018
Born in Switzerland in 1991, pianist and composer Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula studied at the Lausanne Conservatoire and at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, graduating with Distinction. In 2014-15 Jean-Sélim held the Rebanks Family Piano Fellowship at the Glenn Gould School in Toronto, and in 2016 was invited by Sir András Schiff to give solo recitals at major venues in Europe and the USA as part of his Building Bridges concert series, supporting new talents. In May 2017 Jean-Sélim was one of two musicians, selected from a field of over 100 applicants, for a YCAT award.
“Not only is Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula a fine pianist with great sensitivity and imagination, he’s also a major talent in composition. When he plays Bach, Chopin and Schubert, he does it with a composer’s understanding.” Sir András Schiff
