Born in Paris in 1986, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger received an intense and varied musical education in piano, composition and organ before joining the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris at the age of thirteen. On graduating from the CNSM with Five ‘Premier Prix’ he went on to study composition with Michael Jarrell and Pascal Dusapin in Geneva. He has since then established himself as one of the most gifted musicians of his generation, both as a composer and an interpreter known for the extreme variety of his repertoire.
Jean-Frédéric is regularly commissioned by festivals and musical institutions such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Evian Festival, Radio-France, Long-Thibaud International Competition, Folle Journée de Nantes and his works have already been performed by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre de Paris under Christoph von Dohnányi as well as by the Chorus and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Pascal Rophé. He performs with the world’s most prestigious orchestras (New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse). He also worked closely with Pierre Boulez, particularly on the composer’s second piano sonata. In 2014, the Auditorium du Louvre dedicated a series of six concerts to him entitled ‘Jean-Frédéric Neuburger and Friends.’
Dedicating a large part of his performing activities to contemporary music, Jean-Frédéric has premiered several important works including Echo-Daimonon, Philippe Manoury’s concerto for piano and electronics with the Orchestre de Paris under the direction of Ingo Metzmacher (2012) as well as works by Bruno Mantovani, Phillip Maintz and Yves Chauris. His many recordings have received great acclaim from French and international critics. Jean-Frédéric Neuburger received the Lili and Nadia Boulanger prize from the Académie des Beaux Arts and the Hervé Dugardin prize from the SACEM in 2015. His music is published by Durand / Universal Music Classical.
