ARTISTS


Pascal Rogé exemplifies the finest in French pianism and has performed in almost every major concert hall in the word, with every major orchestra, and with the most distinguished conductors, including Lorin Maazel, Michael Tilson Thomas, Mariss Jansons, Charles Dutoit, Kurt Masur, Edo de Waart, Alan Gilbert, David Zinman, Marek Jankowski, Sir Andrew Davis, Raymond Leppard, and others. He became an exclusive Decca recording artist at the age of seventeen and has won two Gramophone Awards, a Grand Prix du Disque and an Edison Award. Recently, Pascal has enjoyed playing recitals for four-hands/two-pianos with his partner in life and in music Ami Rogé. Together, they have travelled the world and recorded several CDs dedicated to the French two-piano and four-hands repertoire.


Pascal and Ami Rogé have appeared at prestigious festivals and concert halls including New York's Carnegie Hall, London's Kings Place, The Sage Gateshead, Sydney Opera House, the Hong Kong Joy of Music Festival, the Singapore International Piano Festival, the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, the Beijing International Piano Festival, the Canberra International Music Festival, the Incontri in Terra di Sienna in Tuscany, the Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival, on tour in New Zealand, and various British festivals in Petworth, Salisbury, Thaxted, Buxton, Leeds, and Bradfield.  They have been broadcast live for the Radio France and for BBC Radio 3. 


They have made growing number of orchestral appearances together playing Poulenc's Concerto for Two Pianos, Mendelssohn's Concerto for Two Pianos in E Major, Mozart's Concerto for Two Pianos K.365, and Carnival of the Animals, with the Shanghai Symphony, the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Het Genders Orkest, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Flamonica de la UNAM Mexico City, the Orchestra National de France.  They have also premiered at newly-commissioned Concerto for Two Pianos by Matthew Hindson with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vladmir Ashkenazy. 


Pascal and Ami recorded Wedding Cake, a CD of French repertoire for four-hands and two-pianos, as well as Ami Suite, a new work written for them by composer Paul Chihara released on Onyx Rogé Edition.  Their second disc for Onyx, Pascal & Ami Rogé play Debussy & Ravel, was released in June 2013 and described by Télérama as "Beautiful, seductive, consummate playing."


Their last disc, Music for Two Pianos and Percussion, which includes Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, Ravel Bolero, and Matthew Hindson's Pulse Magnet,  has just been released in October 2015, receiving 5-stars on Sinfini Music: "this recording is remarkable....with all the rhythmic dynamism, the music's dark grandeur and dramatic sweep come across superbly".
