Biography

Classical pianist Anne Quefffélec was born in Paris, France on January 17, 1948. She is the daughter of writer Henri Queffélec and the older sister of writer Yann Qeffélec. She attended the private school Cours Hattemer before she chose a career in music over literature. She enrolled at the Paris Conservatoire in 1964, winning first prize for piano a year later and first place for chamber music in 1966. She continued her education, studying under  Paul Badura-Skoda and Jörg Demus, then traveled to Vienna to study under Alfred Brendel. At the age of 20,  she won the 1968 Munich competition, and was a prize winner at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 1969. Quefffélec then began a recording and touring career that would introduce her talents to international audiences. Signing with the Erato label, her first album was Ravel, Les Deux Concertos pour piano in 1976. Her subsequent releases found her performing works by Chopin, Schubert, and Debussy. She also recorded several releases devoted to Erik Satie’s compositions. Her studio recordings included collaborations with Pierre Amoyal, Frédéric Lodéon, Imogen Cooper, Catherine Collard and Jean-Bernard Pommier. In 1990, she was awarded the French prize for instrumental soloist at the Victoires de la Musique Classique. Quefffélec’s recording career continued as she recorded compositions by Dutilleux, Mozart, Beethoven, Handel, Bach and Haydn. In 2019, Erato released the 21 CD box set The Complete Erato Recordings.
