Pascal Nemirovski was born in France in 1962. In 1981, he was admitted to The Juilliard School on full scholarship (Steinway & Freundlich Fund) and studied with Nadia Reisenberg, pupil of Joseph Hoffman and Adele Marcus, pupil of Joseph Lhevinne and Artur Schnabel, heirs of the Teodor Leszetycki school. Pascal Nemirovski settled in Paris in 1984 and pursued further studies with France Clidat and Alexis Weissenberg.
He has given numerous concerts and masterclasses in Europe, the United States and Asia. These events were covered by both French and foreign radio and television companies, including Alain Duault, on France 3, who devoted a 52-minute television broadcast to him, entitled “Pascal Nemirovski, un pianiste hors normes” (‘an unconventional pianist‘).
In 1989, at the request of violinist Vladimir Spivakov, he created and was the advisor of the Masterclasses of the International Festival of Colmar, becoming also the youngest professor amongst the 25 guest artists who included D. Bashkirov, P. Devoyon, G. Graffman, J.F. Heisser, A. Knaisev, V. Krainev, Y. Menuhin, T. Zelikman… This festival brought together the greatest international institutions such as the Paris Conservatoire, Curtis Institute of Music (Philadelphia), Royal Academy of Music (London), Moscow Conservatory and Juilliard School (New York).
In 1995, following a triumphal recital given at the Louvre Auditorium in Paris, Pascal Nemirovski decided to withdraw from the concert scene in order to devote himself to the study of repertoire and pedagogy, which he considers ‘an infinite source of enrichment and knowledge, as well as an authentic artistic and human exchange’. Since then, he has devoted himself to his students amongst them Lise de la Salle. A number of his pupils from China, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Korea, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, USA... have won prizes. He enjoys an international reputation as a teacher, presenting masterclasses throughout the world and is often a jury member at international piano competitions.
In 2004, he released his first CD “Entre Ciel et Terre” devoted to Chopin, Prokofiev and Scriabin which was unanimously acclaimed by the press.
He is currently writing books about piano technique and pedagogy.
Since 2007, he gives Masterclasses at The Evian International Academy and is invited each year since 2008 at The Nancy European Music Masterclasses. He will also teach in 2010 at the The Courchevel International Academy.
In 2006, he was appointed Professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London and was awarded an honorary ARAM in 2009.
