Pascal Rogé exemplifies the finest in French pianism. Born in Paris, he was a student of the Paris Conservatory and was also mentored by Julius Katchen and the great Nadia Boulanger.
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 appearing at prestigious festivals and concert halls and recorded several CDs dedicated to the French 2 piano and 4 hands repertoire. This evening’s concert celebrates the 150th birthday of Éric Satie.
