duo b!z'art André RoeGeoffrey Baptiste

Having always been attracted by playing music with other people and by the pleasure of communication it provides, it is not surpising that, at the end of his studies at the Conservatory's of Liège and Brussels, Geoffrey persued a carrer as a chamber musician and a orchestral pianist.

He founded three chamber music ensembles: the duo b!z'art, the duo dzeta (piano and violin, with Aude Miller), and the trio Oxymore (with the violinist Emilie Belaud and clarinetist Pierre Xhonneux). Besides these chamber music concerts, Geoffrey has given over 100 concerts since 2006 as a piano and celesta player within the Liege Royal Philharmonic. He also works with the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonie Zuidnederland.

In January 2010, he played the Fantasy on Polish Airs of F. Chopin, accompanied by the Liege Royal Philharmonic conducted by François-Xavier Roth. Parallel to his artistic activities, Geoffrey shares his passion for music as a piano teacher and accompanist in several music academies. Geoffrey is also a winner of various competitions in Belgium, France and Italy, including Dexia Classics where he was honored as a chamber musician and as a concert pianist.
