Biographie

« Luisada, l?enchanteur, l?humaniste à son instrument, l?homme à sa passion, à son amour de l?art, sculptant ses sons dans un marbre blanc imaginaire dressant un véritable Taj Mahal dans les nuages et ce ciel où il vagabonde avec les anges mélomanes ravis de sa présence ».
Franck Ciup

La quarantaine juvénile, regard timide et pétillant derrière ses lunettes d?éternel étudiant, sourire à la franchise mâtinée de douceur et tignasse en bataille, Jean-Marc Luisada cache sous ses faux airs d?adolescent bohème un tempérament où le feu se mêle à la glace, l?exaltation à la mélancolie et le brio à l?introspection. Des lauriers au concours Chopin de Varsovie, suivis de Valses et Mazurkas qui ont marqué d?une pierre blanche et d?un petit vent de folie son entrée dans le monde discographique, lui donnent vite des ailes. Au Japon, aux Etats-Unis, en Allemagne ou au Danemark, il pratique Chopin comme une drogue - et le public partage son addiction. Son jeu poétique et fantasque, au toucher aérien et aux colorations inouïes, achèvera de le parer d?une aura de
grand interprète romantique. S?il porte Schumann, Brahms et Liszt aux nues, ce libre penseur tout aussi passionné cinéphile qu?éclectique mélomane n?est pas de ceux qui se laissent enfermer dans un rôle : Granados, Grieg, Dvorak et Scriabine en savent quelque chose. Raffiné mais jamais maniéré, spontané sans excès d?épanchement, finement dosé et parfaitement maîtrisé, son piano d?orfèvre fait tout autant merveille dans Bizet ou Fauré, quand il ne part pas, en quête d?apaisement, se ressourcer au pays des grands classiques. Là, chez Bach, Mozart ou Haydn, comme chez les autres, il impose ses visions fourmillant de trouvailles, toujours inédites, et toujours passionnantes. Car le pianiste français est doué d?une imagination en perpétuelle effervescence, que ses maîtres d?hier (Marcel Ciampi, Denyse Rivière, Dominique Merlet et les grands Nikita Magalof f et Paul Badura-Skoda) ont eu à coeur de respecter, comme il s?efforce aujourd?hui de le faire avec ses propres disciples de l?Ecole Normale de Musique. Original sans parti pris de provocation, Jean-Marc Luisada joue au fil de l?âme. Sincère et sans détours, modeste et bon rieur à la scène comme à la ville, il est de la race des charmeurs nés. De ceux qui vous subjuguent comme en dépit d?euxmêmes.


"Enchanting LUISADA, humanist at the keyboard, this man belongs to his passion his love forart, he is a sculptor of sounds in imaginary white marble creating an authentic TAJ MAHAL in clouds and this heaven where he travels with MUSIC LOVERS ANGELS delighted of his presence".
Franck Ciup

Profoundly shaping his musical talents were two teachers: Marcel Ciampi and Denyse Riviere, with whom he studied first in Paris, then at the Yehudi Menuhin School in England. He then began his studies at the Paris National Conservatory of Music, where he studied piano with Dominique Merlet and chamber music with Genevieve Joy-Dutilleux. Winning first prize in both disciplines, he began postgraduate work in 1978, while working regularly with Nikita Magaloff, Paul Badura-Skoda, and Milosz Magin, who would remain his teachers after the completion of his degree. In 1983, Mr Luisada gave a prize-winning performance at the Dino Ciani competition at La Scala in Milan. In 1985 he was a prize winner at the International Chopin Competition in
Warsaw. His success in Warsaw opened the door to an international career. Concerts across the globe
ensued. Invited to tour Japan after the competition, he now returns on an annual basis to a faithful public.
In conjunction with the rise of his touring career, Jean-Marc Luisada recorded first with Harmonic Records and then with the Deutsche Grammophon label with whom he realised numerous recordings - some of the most noteworthy are the Chopin waltzes and Mazurkas, the Granados Goyescas, and the Grieg and Schumann concerti with the London Symphony Orchestra and Michael Tilson Thomas. Jean-Marc Luisada signed an exclusive contract with RCA Red Seal/BMG in 1998 (now Sony Music). His releases on the label feature the music of Bizet and Fauré (for which he received the Disc of the Year award), Chopin, Dvorak, Schumann, Mozart, Haydn...Last spring he recorded works of Liszt, Scriabin and Chopin which was extremely well received by the press. Mr Luisada has a great love of the cinema (he has a personal collection of over 8,000 films!)
and one of his favourite projects was a recording for Deutsche Grammophon of Poulenc's
"Histoire de Babar" with French actrice Jeanne Moreau. He has since gone on to pursue other
projects combining the two arts, such as "Feu Sacré - George Sand and Chopin" a concertmonologue
with renowned actrice Macha Méril. He has also worked with actors Clément Sibony, Nicolas Vaude, Marie-Christine Barrault, Bruno Putzulu. Jean-Marc Luisada has performed under the direction of Charles Dutoit, Adam Fischer, Theodor Guschlbauer, Eliahu Inbal, Hiroyuki Iwaki, Marek Janowski, Emmanuel Krivine, Yehudi
Menuhin, Michel Plasson, Cord Garben, Jean-Bernard Pommier, Yutaka Sado, Stanislaw Skorwacewski and Michael Tilson Thomas with the LSO, NHK, Orchestre National de France, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, St Petersburg Orchestra, Sinfonia Varsovia, Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse.... He is also a devoted chamber musician and performs with the Fine Arts, Sine Nomine, Kocian, and Talich quartets, as well as with Paul Meyer, Patrick Gallois, Gary Hoffman, Yuzuko Horigome, Philip Dukes, Josephine Knight, Laurent Korcia, Raphaël
