About the artists

Described by the French Radio as “one of the most gifted young artists of the youngest generation” and “a young artist with a distinctive voice”, London-based pianist Antoine Preat has been invited to perform in prestigious venues includinæg the Wigmore Hall, Salle Gaveau, Salle Cortot, Paris Beaux Arts Museum, Frederyk Chopin Institute as well as throughout Europe and the United States, being featured on radios such as the BBC, France Musique, Scala Radio and TRT Radio 3.

As a curious child, Louise Cournarie started the piano at the age of 3 in Toulouse. Her early training developped her taste for the beauty of the sound. It was also as a child that she discovered the harpsichord as well as her passion for Baroque music. She has performed in prestigious halls such as Wigmore hall, st Martin’s in the fields, Steinway hall, Maison de Radio France, and gave lectures in Europe. She is now keen to share the early results of her research by teaching the younger generation of pianists, more specifically as a Baroque piano coach at the Royal Academy of Music.
