Pierre-Laurent Boucharlat played his first concerto with orchestra at the age of 13, and gave his first recital at the age of 15.
After winning his prize at the Music High School of Lyon, Pierre-Laurent Boucharlat was accepted unanimously into the Troisième Cycle in Paris, in the class of Jean-Claude Pennetier. He then continued his studies with Monique Deschaussées, a student of Alfred Cortot and Edwin Fischer.
A winner of international competitions (Spedidam Prize, Darius Milhaud Prize), his notoriety became assured in 2000, when his CD, a live recording of the 24 studies of Chopin, was released and favourably announced in, Piano Le Magazine.
He has since been invited to perform in many countries in Europe (Russia, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Sapin, Belgium, Greece, Czech Republic, Poland, Turkey, Macedonia), in Asia (Kazakhstan, Siberia) and América (United States, Canada, Mexico).
He can be heard regularly in recital and as soloist with orchestra, and in chamber music, notably with the Ensemble Promethée, which he founded in 2005. He collaborates alongside recognized partners such as Pascal Amoyel, Vadim Tchijik, Philippe Bernold, Emmanuelle Bertrand, David Bismuth, Nicolas Dautricourt, Florent Héau, Mark Drobinsky, Hugo Ticciati, the Archimede Quartett, and the Wiener Kammersymphonie.
