Bio

Pascal Nemirovski is recognized as one of the most sought-after piano pedagogues in the world with many of his students winning top international prizes (Leeds, Busoni, Ettlingen, YCA New York, YCAT London, BBC New Generation Artist…) and many of whom are now successful recording artists represented by major Concert Artist Management companies (Harrison Parrott, Askonas Holt, Intermusica, IMG Artists…). Among them Lise de la Salle, Louis Schwizgebel, Daniel Lebhardt, Mario Mora, Roman Kosyakov, Emanuil Ivanov, Edward Leung, Yi Zhong ...


He studied at the Juilliard School with Nadia Reisenberg and Adele Marcus from 1981 to 1984 on a full scholarship (Steinway & Freundlich Fund). Then he continued his studies in Paris with France Clidat and Alexis Weissenberg and started to give concerts and masterclasses in Europe, the United States and Asia.


At the early age of 28, his vocation for teaching was already recognised and since then he has been invited in most of the major institutions in China (Shanghai Conservatory, Beijing Central and China Conservatories, Shenzhen Arts School…), Finland (Sibelius Academy), France (Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris), Ireland (Royal Irish Academy of Music), Israel (Buchmann-Mehta School of Music, The Jerusalem Music Centre), Russia (Moscow Conservatory and Central school of Music), UK (Royal Academy of Music, Purcell School, Oxford University) …


He is also very much in demand as a jury member at International Piano Competitions throughout the world.


In 2004, he recorded a CD “Entre Ciel et Terre” devoted to Chopin, Prokofiev and Scriabin which was unanimously acclaimed by the press.


For 10 years, he has taught at the Royal Academy of Music in London and was awarded Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music (Hon ARAM). Having much experience in teaching, he was also responsible for the Subject Specialism “Piano Pedagogy” for LRAM (Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music) and edited two books. During this period, he also taught at the Purcell School.


In 2016, he joined the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, where he now holds the position of “International Chair” in Piano.
