Lutxi Nesprias

Originally from the Basque country, Lutxi Nesprias studied the piano with Ada Labèque and Germaine Devèze before entering the Conservatoire à rayonnement regional de Paris in the class of Brigitte Bouthinon-Dumas.

After winning a first prize at the Claude Kahn competition, a second prize at the Saint-Saëns International Piano Competition and the Romantic Music Prize at the Tel Aviv Festival, she was admitted to the Conservatoire national supérieur de Paris in 2004, in the class of Jacques Rouvier, graduating with a First Prize three years later. She then went on to do a master’s degree in piano accompaniment in the classes of Jean Koerner and Jean-Frédéric Neuburger, followed by a second master’s degree in choir training in the class of Erika Guiomar.

Lutxi performed with the Orchestre Bayonne-Côte-basque at the inauguration of the Bayonne Theatre, and played solo in Messiaen’s Trois petites liturgies de la présence divine [Three Small Liturgies of the Divine Presence] under the bâton of conductor Zsolt Nagy at the Reims Cathedral, the Auditorium in Madrid and the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. Her duo with cellist Marion Platero won the Mélomane Côte Sud prize from the Ravel Academy.

She is regularly invited to perform in concerts and festivals such as the Biarritz Piano Classique, the Ravel Academy Spring, La Dame des Aulnes, and Le Festival des Abbayes. She has performed in solo and chamber music recitals together with the violinists Guillaume Latour, Shuichi Okada, Julien Zelaia, the soprano Manon Lamaison, and the flautist Frédéric Chatoux.

She is the piano accompanist at the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Paris et au Pôle supérieur Paris Boulogne-Billancourt.
