A graduate of the Juilliard school in New York City, pianist Elyane Laussade has delighted audiences on five continents with her imaginative and strongly individual playing. The New York Times has said she is â€œa pianist with a powerful, polished technique and many an original interpretive notionâ€¦.with an impeccable sense of style and dazzling power.â€
Originally from the USA, she has now established herself as one of Australiaâ€™s finest performers. She has performed on numerous occasions with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and has been featured by ABC Classic FM and 3MBS in studio recordings and live broadcasts.
As a soloist, Elyane has performed in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, China, Japan, South Africa, the USA, Taiwan and Europe.
As a recording artist Elyane has recorded â€œJust for You,â€ a solo CD, â€œThese Little Thingsâ€ with Sydney-based violinist Jemima Littlemore, and â€œHumanationâ€ with Melbourne cellist Luke Severn.
Elyaneâ€™s most recent endeavour is the Mozart Project which will see her perform all 27 Mozart piano concertos with orchestras around Australia. She enjoys a rich chamber music involvement along with her solo career.
Her love for the musical experience as a close encounter has inspired her to run a special series of intimate recitals at the Laussade Studio in Melbourne. Elyane enjoys performing in her studio as a soloist and in collaboration with Australian and international musicians.
