Laurianne Corneille aims to create, through the medium of music, complete objects of art, bringing unity to each artistic project. This consists, amongst other elements, of creating a character to personify, helping to enrich the narration in function with the chosen repertoire. In order to do this she hopes to offer a certain unity in her staging (video, photography, texts and music are as closely linked as possible) and she works with talented artists who share their valuable input in the conception of the project. Literary correlations are also an important aspect in her manner of approaching the interpreted works – this being directly linked to one of her passions, writing, which has taken on the form of essays and articles about music in the last few years. (Nomad music, Le Babillard).
In terms of studies, Laurianne Corneille started her musical tuition at the Conservatoire de Tours and continued at the Conservatoire in Boulogne Billancourt, taught by Marie-Paul Siruguet and Danièle Bellik-Zbar. In 2003 she joined the Brussels Royal Conservatory and learnt with Evgeny Moguilevsky, the last pupil of Neuhaus. The Russian school of piano playing was to be a revelation and the acquisition of this cultural heritage forged her artistic identity. She also discovered a passion for the pianoforte under the guidance of Claire Chevallier and plays on period instruments.
Awarded her master’s degree in interpretation in 2008 and her teaching qualification the year after, Laurianne Corneille performs in numerous festivals both as a soloist and chamber musician and her eclecticism carries her as much towards historical performance projects (the symphonic poems of Liszt coordinated by Cyril Huvé on a double piano by Pleyel from 1898 with Tristan Pfaff and Daria Fadeeva, for the Generation Spedidam) as to contemporary music (with composers such as Philippe Boesmans, Jean-Luc Fafchamps, Claude Ledoux, Benoît Mercier) or indeed jazz (concerts at the Music Village in Brussels).
On her return to france after her years in belgium, a qualified teacher, Laurianne Corneille worked at the CRR in Boulogne-Billancourt for 5 years before being appointed at the Conservatoire de Vanves. A very active pedagogue, she is also a piano teacher at the Academie Philippe Jaroussky, based at the Seine Musicale since 2017. She was one of the teachers to be followed during the first year of the Academy, alongside her students,for the documentary “Joue” by Patrice Masini. She has also made a number of recordings: with Nomad music (for the NomadPlay App), with the publishers Actes Sud for the release of “Anagrammes a quatre mains” by Jacques Perry-Salkow and Karol Beffa. She recorded her solo album of works by Schumann at the RiffX Studios at the Seine Musicale.
She is currently a music journalist at Forum Opera and a regular guest at the radio program “Table d’écoute” produced by Camille De Rijck on Musiq3 (RTBF).
