About

Jean-Bernard Pommier, pianist in recital, Beethoven's late piano works (along with the other music from the end of his life) are regarded as among the highest pinnacles of western music; works which are approached with reverence and only after immense study by the greatest interpreters of our time. The critically acclaimed French pianist Jean-Bernard Pommier has appeared over the years in recitals and as a guest of orchestras in every important world music center. He has also performed as a soloist in Beethoven cycles with Daniel Barienboim and Orchestre de Paris and Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic. Classical Net reviews Mr. Pommier’s playing on his complete recording of Beethoven’s Sonatas (Erato) as “ideally Classical…He is fleet, sensitive, flexible, and very expressive.” And the Los Angeles Times writes:  “Jean-Bernard Pommier essayed Mozart’s piano concerto in D minor with the kind of crystalline tone, bright without being brittle, that Allows Mozart to sparkle…Pommier deserved his multiple curtain calls from the public.”
