Vanessa Wagner is pursuing a career that echoes her original and passionate personality, combining the classical repertoire with contemporary creations, chamber music and the playing of ancient pianos, as well as innovative projects combining art music with video, electronic music and dance.
Born in Rennes, Brittany, she began playing the piano at the age of 7. She was awarded First Prize at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris at the age of 17. In 1999, she received the “instrumental solo revelation” Victoire de la Musique (the French equivalent of the Grammy Awards) for Classical Music. Since then, she has performed all over the world, and her wide-ranging and award-winning discography reflects a vast repertoire and a keen personality, touching on Rameau, Haydn, Schumann, Schubert, Debussy, Ravel, and contemporary music. The great French composer Pascal Dusapin has dedicated several works to her, which she developed. Wagner is also a regular guest of major venues and festivals and is also a favourite of conductors such as Charles Dutoit, Michel Plasson and François-Xavier Roth.
Her first performance as a guest of InFiné’s Workshops was at the Carrière du Normandoux, alongside Mexican producer Murcof, in 2010. Six years later, the Murcof-Wagner duo released Statea, an album of interpretations of the minimalist repertoire combining piano and electronic textures, giving rise to numerous international concerts, from the Barbican and Kings Place in London, to the Jazzhouse in Copenhagen and the Philharmonie de Paris.
After Inland, released in 2018 on InFiné, a reference to John Cage’s “imaginary landscape”, Vanessa Wagner continues her exploration of the minimalist repertoire by introducing her audience to rare or unpublished pieces by acclaimed composers, piano young talents, and genre-bending personalities from the ambient, alternative and electronic scenes. Study of the Invisible will be released on March 25th, 2022.
