Sebastian Ene is a professional musician with cultural roots both in the Eastern and the Western Europe. Concert pianist, chamber musician and piano teacher, he dedicates his life to the understanding and the transmition of the musical language.

 

His musical education at the Paris Conservatory has been marked by the pedagogical work of Roger Muraro and Isabelle Dubuis, Emmanuel Strosser and Cécile Hugonard-Roche. In later years he has worked with Michael Levinas, Jean-Claude Pennetier, Gabriel Tacchino and Corneliu Gheorghiu. He also had masterclasses with Benedetto Lupo and Philippe Bianconi.

During his first twelve years of piano in Romania he has participated in more than 15 national competitions and has often won the first prize, this part of education
having been particulary important for his first piano teachers Sorin Baroti and Magda Stanescu.

His musical encounters with french composers Roger Tessier and Michael Levinas have been fundamental. The IRCAM experiences in 2013 and 2014 next to Michael Levinas during the research work and the composition of a piece for acoustic piano and midi-keybord ordered by the same institution has
allowed him to deepen his interest into the piano sound and the sound resonance.

His large panel of musical and cultural interests has allowed him to share the stage with numerous musicians and artists.

His duo with the violonist Hugues Girard offers to the public the works of the great Masters, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann, but also those of the young contemporary composers.

The collaboration with the albanian pianist Rea Veizi brings to the public a whole different idea of a concert, as it is based on the artistic bound between music, visual-art and theatre, all in a life performance (with invited artists).


He's work as a musician has been sustained by "Fondation Banque Populaire" as a 2015 Pianist Laureat.
Chosen by "Institut de France, Académie des Beaux Arts", he has been resident in "Château de Lourmarin".

Moreover, he is the winner of several scholarships from foundations like "L'or du Rhin", "Meyer", "Tarrazi" and "Fortuna".
