Our Ambassador

For me, Anna’s Gaze represents hope, and an idea that I find very beautiful: that we all have a role to play for the common good in our world.
As an ambassador for the association against early childhood poverty Le Regard d’Anna, I support the action of Martine and Pierre Scherer and their entire team, and hope that my music will convey our message of solidarity and love.
Emmanuelle Stéphan
 “Emmanuelle Stephan has everything of a star. Virtuosity first: an airy touch and a depth of interpretation that make exceptional pianists. This talent combined with a natural grace propelled her to the firmament of classical music. »

Sophie Granel, France Televisions Writing Culture
Emmanuelle Stéphan is a young French pianist who has won numerous prizes from international competitions and who has distinguished herself by her search for authenticity.
After his studies in New York (Juilliard School), his taste for the music of Francis Poulenc guided him to the master Gabriel Tacchino, the composer’s only student and benchmark performer.
Noted for her interpretative qualities, she has established herself alongside her teacher by forming a piano duo with him that has been heard from China to Brazil since 2015, recorded under the Warner Classics / Erato label in 2018 and obtained in 2022 the “Duo Francis Poulenc” label, awarded by the heir and holder of the rights.
Strengthened by this historical and quasi-filial recognition, Emmanuelle, at the piano solo or in duet, carries high the colors of great French piano music, not only by her fair and authentic interpretation, but also by her eloquence drawn from the many anecdotes and details. that his master Gabriel Tacchino told him about the composer.
Also focusing on the romantic repertoire, in 2020 Emmanuelle gave two recitals in Warsaw in a program dedicated to the Polish composer Frédéric Chopin and continued with the filming of the report “The return of the child prodigy” for France Télévisions.
In 2021, among other events, Emmanuelle was made an honorary member of Encatc, the “European Network for Cultural Management and Policies”, and performed Beethoven’s Concerto No.5 “The Emperor” at Fort Napoleon in commemoration Napoleon’s Bicentenary.
Its 2022 season will begin with a series of recitals in France followed by a tribute tour, notably in Romania with Francis Poulenc’s double concerto, in memory of his master Gabriel Tacchino who died suddenly on January 29, 2023.
In memory of her master, she will participate in the program “Générations France Musique, le Live” of June 24, 2023 around French music.
