Jean-Philippe Collard (b1948)

One of six children born into a musical family, Jean-Philippe Collard first studied piano in Epernay. At the Paris Conservatoire, where he was enrolled at the age of ten, he studied with Aline van Barentzen and led a fairly lonely existence, having to practise five to six hours each day, becoming isolated from other children. After winning a premier prix from van Barentzen’s class at the age of sixteen, Collard was not ready for a performing career. He decided to study privately with a pupil of Yves Nat, Pierre Sancan, who succeeded in moving Collard away from the purely technical aspects of the piano (as learnt at the Conservatoire) in order to concentrate more on its musical qualities. At twenty, Collard won first prize at the Guilde Française des Artistes Solistes and the following year won fifth prize and the special Fauré Prize at the Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud Competition; this was followed a year later by his win at the Cziffra Competition.
