|Alain Raës, pianist, was born in Roubaix (France) in 1947. At the Paris Conservatoire, he won first prizes in piano and chamber music. He then went on to study with Paul Badura-Skoda and György Sebök before winning the Grand Prize at the Geneva International Competition in 1973.
His passion for chamber music has led him to collaborate with various musicians, including Claude Faucomprez to form a piano-clarinet duo.
This great champion of French music has recorded, amongst others, the complete piano music of Arthur Honegger and Albert Roussel, as well as their concertos.
