Célia Oneto Bensaïd

For several years now, the press has been following the development of this “committed pianist with golden fingers and an impeccable technique” (LexNews), whose “sensibility is matched only by her mastery” (Télérama) and who, according to Les Échos, embodies “the free spirit of the next generation of French pianists”.

Célia graduated from the Paris Conservatoire winning five prizes brilliantly in piano, chamber music and the three accompaniment classes. Today, Célia performs in the world’s greatest venues, playing a carefully chosen repertoire of solos, chamber music and concertos. She is one of the artists most committed to the rediscovery of the feminine musical heritage. A Yamaha artist and grantee of the Banque Populaire, Célia has won prizes in numerous international competitions and was awarded the Audience Prize by Geneva’s Société des Arts.

She has recently appeared with the Orchestre d’Avignon-Provence, Orchestre de Bretagne, and Orchestre de l’Opéra de Toulon.

She has been invited to play recitals and chamber music at the Philharmonie de Paris, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, the Festival International de Piano de La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée de Nantes, the Harbin Grand Theatre (China), the Salamanca Hall (Japan), the Salle Bourgie (Montreal, Canada) and the Wigmore Hall. Her ten or so recordings illustrate her attachment to her favourite repertoires and have been widely acclaimed by the press (TTTT by Télérama, 5 stars by Classica, Le Monde’s choice etc.).
