Bruno Philippe has studied with David Geringas, Steven Isserliss, Gary Hoffman, Pieter Wispelwey and Clemens Hagen at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Since October 2014, he has been studying as a young soloist at the Kronberg Academy with Frans Helmerson. He has won many competitions and in 2017, he is laureate of the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels.

His first album, devoted to Brahms’s Sonatas, recorded with the pianist Tanguy de Williencourt for the Evidence Classic label, came out in 2015. Now in 2017 he joins the label Harmonia Mundi and releases this new album around Beethoven and Schubert sonatas, with Tanguy de Williencourt.

Tanguy de Williencourt studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Roger Muraro, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger and Claire Désert, and obtained a Masters in piano and accompaniment with distinction. He is now on the Artist Diploma Programme. Studying lieder and mélodies with Jeff Cohen and Anne le Bozec, and orchestral conducting with Nicolas Brochot and George Pehlivanian, he won the 2008 Yamaha Competition, was runner-up in the 2013 Fauré Competition, and he received bursaries from the Or du Rhin, Blüthner and Meyer Foundations. He has recorded for both Evidence Classics and Mirare.

Twenty years ago, harmonia mundi and France Musique joined forces to produce the first albums of a new generation of musicians from around the world. Mostly unknown to the general public when they first entered the recording studios, these ‘nouveaux interprètes’ (as the first series was called) included Isabelle Faust, Paul Lewis, Piotr Anderszewski, Emmanuelle Bertrand, Frank Braley, François-Frédéric Guy, Jean‑Guihen Queyras, Alexander Melnikov, Lawrence Power, Ekaterina Sementchuk, Alexandre Tharaud, Cédric Tiberghien, Xavier de Maistre, Alban Gerhardt and many others. Since then, the vast majority of these have made quite a name for themselves and have become the mainstay of many a recordcompany, not least harmonia mundi itself.

Now following the success of ‘Les Nouveaux Interprètes’ (which later became ‘Les Nouveaux Musiciens’),
harmonia#nova is a new series to welcome a new generation of young artists. harmonia#nova will provide a technical, editorial and promotional showcase measuring up to the high production standards of harmonia mundi. Each artist will subsequently have the spotlight trained on them, on disc, online (streaming, downloads, social media) and in images – and then, for a year, in the form of an accompaniment to their artistic development, in concert, in promotional activities, in every territory. It was the least harmonia mundi could do to give all these musicians access to the international diffusion that has made the label’s reputation. Welcome young talents! Long life to harmonia#nova!
– Christian Girardin, label manager
