Who is Huillet ?

Huillet is a musician. He is alive.

 He is a pianist.





He won the First Prize of the Cleveland International Piano Competition, USA.

He is Laureate of the Busoni and Tokyo International Piano Competitions.

A few venues where he performed : National Center for Performing Arts Beijing (China), Théâtre du Châtelet Paris (France), Lima Philharmonic Society (Peru), Cleveland Orchestra (USA), RAI Orchestras (Italy), Enesco International Festival (Romania), Croisements Festival (China), Yokohama Piano Festival (Japan), Auditorio de Barcelona (Spain), Hanoï Opera (Viet-nam), Mozarteum Argentino (Argentina)…

He recorded several CD and DVD covering a large repertoire : Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Rachmaninov, Bloch, Enesco, Turina, Fauré, Liszt, Saint-Saëns
and, last but not least… Huillet !


 He is a composer.





As a composer, he started his career at the age of 33, and has already written about 70 pieces, which allows him, on the assumption of a reasonable life expectancy, to plan to produce between 200 and 300 pieces of work!

He only writes when he feels like it.

The performer feeds the composer and the composer feeds the performer.

Clara is pressing him to write his first opera.

His works are performed in very prestigious concert halls and festivals by wonderful artists : symphonic works in the George Enesco International Festival (2013), piano works in first audition by Kotaro Fukuma at the Victoria Hall, Geneva and the Yokohama Concert Hall (2012), first performance of his second quartet by the Manfred Quartet (2012, Notes d’Automne Festival), The King’s Singers (2007), Orchestre de Chambre de Toulouse (2008), the great French horn player Pierre Delvescovo, at the National Center for Performing Arts Beijing (2011, 2012), Théâtre de la Monnaie Bruxelles (2010), Romanian Athanaeum Bucharest (2010)…

And of course by Clara Cernat, all over the world and forever…
