Alice Michel : Une vie dédiée à la musique
Mêlant habilement tous les genres (quatuor à cordes, deux pianos, etc,), elle joue également aussi bien avec des chanteurs, qu’elle affectionne particulièrement, qu’avec des instrumentistes (flûtiste, violoniste, violoncelliste). Des concerts la conduisent régulièrement en Allemagne, Pologne, Tchéquie, et son désir de partager la musique est toujours aussi vivace. Le récital, la musique de chambre permettent à sa nature profonde et réfléchie de s’épanouir pleinement.
Pendant 30 ans, elle a enseigné son art au conservatoire de Musique de Montreux-Vevey-Riviera.
The artistic journey of pianist Alice Michel is atypical
After having played the piano, the organ (she obtained a church degree at age 15) and acting in the theatre, Alice Michel pursued the piano and joined the Lausanne Conservatory (Conservatoire de Lausanne) under the guidance of Michel Perret with whom she later performed many concerts using two pianos and four hands.
At the age when one embarks on a career, Alice Michel chose to start a family but did not abandon the piano. She continued mastering her piano skills from prominent pedagogues like Elisabeth Rothenberg, an ardent follower of Busoni and benefitted from the precious counsels of Maria Curcio from London.
Skilfully mixing all genres of chamber music, string quartets, two pianos, etc., she plays equally well with singers with whom she has a special affinity as well as with instrumentalists, e.g. flute, violin, cello, etc. Her concert tours take her regularly to places like Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
Today, her desire to share her music still lives on and is as strong as ever. She performs concerts as a solo artist, especially in chamber music where her deep, inner nature blossoms to their full potential.
Teacher at the Montreux - Vevey - Riviera music conservatory gives her the opportunity to fulfil her desire to share her art of playing the piano.
She has also recorded several pieces for the radio Espace 2 from the works of the Lausanne composer Claude Dubuis. This composer has also dedicated a number of pieces called “Les Rencontres” in her honour.
She now has two CDs - piano solo with some lesser known works from Mozart, and Winterreise from Schubert with baritone bass Christian Gavillet.
