Geoffroy Couteau

"Geoffroy Couteau's range of subtly nuanced sounds amazes, like the gentle touch of an angel's wing" - Alain Cochard, concertclassic.com

To bring arts and culture to a wider audience, Le French May has organised a community outreach programme featuring pianist and rising star Geoffroy Couteau, who will perform with The RTHK Quartet for a unique presentation of intercultural music.

Specialising in Brahms, Couteau graduated with first class honours from the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris, and completed his performance programme under the likes of Michel Béroff and Marie-Françoise Bucquet.

As well as performing in France he has played in Thailand with the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, and in the National Arts Theatre in Rio de Janeiro, and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. In 2005 he won the International Brahms Competition for his performance of the Third Sonata Op.5, and received four stars from Le Monde de la Musique for his first recorded works.

Founded by Radio Television Hong Kong in 2009 with a view to promote and encourage the art of chamber music, The RTHK Quartet comprises four outstanding musicians; violinists Ayako Ichimaru and Le Hoai-nam, violist Elvis Chan, and cellist Laurent Perrin.

Sharing a common passion for chamber music, these Hong Kong-based musicians come from different parts of the world: Japan, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and Luxembourg, and reflect our city's cosmopolitan environment, as well as the universal appeal of music.
