"Luisada, the enchanter, the humanist with his instrument, the man with his passion, his love of art, sculpting his sounds in an imaginary white marble erecting a veritable Taj Mahal into the clouds and this sky where he wanders with the music-loving angels delighted with his presence” (Franck Ciup).
A renowned soloist, Jean-Marc Luisada is one of the rare heirs to the French romantic tradition.
Jean-Marc Luisada began playing the piano at the age of 6 in Alès then in Paris with Marcel Ciampi and Denyse Rivière. He went on to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School, England where both his masters taught. There, his contemporaries and counterparts include Yehudi Menuhin, but also Nadia Boulanger, Benjamin Britten, Vlado Perlemuter.
At the age of 16, Jean-Marc Luisada entered the CNSMP in Dominique Merlet's piano class and Geneviève Joy-Dutilleux's chamber music class. He won his first prizes in 1977 and 1978. During these years of apprenticeship, he received advice from Nikita Magaloff, Paul Badura-Scoda and Milosz Magin. After his 3rd cycle of studies, he gave his first concerts at Salle Gaveau, Salle Pleyel.
He is a laureate of the Dino Ciani Competition (1983) and of the Warsaw Chopin Competition (1985).
In 1971, Jean-Marc Luisada made his first recording devoted to Chopin's waltzes, then in 1998, a premiere: a version of the 1st concerto, with the Talich Quartet in a chamber version signed by Chopin himself. In 2014, he recorded Schubert's Trout with the Modigliani Quartet and in 2021 a disc dedicated to Schubert with the sonatas D 840 (Reliquie) and D960.
