Nicolas Stavy's passion for the piano dates back to his childhood. Determined to make it his life's work, he joined the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse, then the Conservatoire de Genève to train as a virtuoso. He graduated each time with the highest honours, and was then awarded a special prize at the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. With his large repertoire and love for various forms, Nicolas Stavy also likes to cross the divide between music and the other arts, working on shows with artists like Didier Sandre or Robin Renucci, with whom he performed in Wladyslaw Szpilman's The Pianist.
