Jacques C. Després' extraordinary musical talent has been noticed as early as 1963 by legendary Canadian conductor Wilfrid Pelletier. Following his winning of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra competition in 1978, and the Prix d’Europe in 1981 from the Académie de musique du Québec, Després has led a varied artistic life. He has appeared as soloist with orchestra, recitalist, chamber musician, collaborative artist, lecturer, educator and musical director of the Summer Serenades at the University of Stony Brook’s Staller Center in New York.

Worldwide critical accolades noted in Després’ musical approach a rare combination of virtuosity and artistic integrity. Després’ repertoire is broad and eclectic. Most notably are his two-world premiere recordings of Joseph Martin Kraus complete piano works and The New Goldberg Variations with cellist Tanya Prochazka. The Kraus performances, on Naxos, received world critical acclaim. He followed up for the same label with a two compact discs recording of the complete chamber music works by Kraus, a recording he edited.

Jacques Després and Andrew Wan are both graduates of Juilliard as well as winners of the Montreal Symphony competition. Després in 1977 and Wan in 2007. Having two winners of this prestigious award, and Wan being one of the youngest to hold that position should prove this to be a spectacular performance.
