Guillaume Bellom

Guillaume Bellom has had one of the most atypical careers of his generation, studying violin at the same time as piano from the Besançon Conservatoire to the CNSM in Paris. It was his contact with prominent personalities in the music world such as Nicholas Angelich and Hortense Cartier-Bresson that he went on to fully develop his activities as a pianist.

Finalist and Modern Times prize for Best Interpretation of a Contemporary Piece at the Clara Haskil competition in 2015, his talent came to light at this event dedicated to the Romanian pianist, also a violinist in her spare time. The same year, he won first prize at the International Épinal Competition and became a laureate of the L’Or du Rhin Foundation, before winning the Thierry Scherz prize at the Sommets Musicaux in Gstaad the following year. The public discovered him at the 2017 Victoires de la Musique, where he was nominated in the Instrumental Soloist Revelation category. He has also been associated with the Singer-Polignac Foundation since 2018.

His music career has led him from the Roque d'Anthéron International Piano Festival and Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in France to the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg and the Concert Hall in Shanghai, in the company of artists and conductors such as Christian Zacharias, Renaud Capuçon, Paul Meyer and Victor Julien-Laferrière.

His discography includes two albums dedicated to works for four hands by Schubert (rewarded by an ffff from Télérama) and Mozart, recorded with Ismaël Margain, an album of sonatas with cellist Yan Levionnois, (also rewarded by an ffff from Télérama), and a solo album focused on Schubert, Haydn and Debussy.
