Jean-Pierre Salmona started studying piano at 6, first with Jeannine Barbulée, then with Charlotte Causeret and Jules Gentil at the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris. He then began studying medicine, worked for several years in hospitals, before settling as a cardiologist in 1986. At the same time he continued studying piano, notably with pianists Inger Södergren, Milosz Magin and Marie- Catherine Girod, dedicated to an eclectic repertoire, including works rarely performed (Chausson, Falla, Balakirev, Liadov, Milosz Magin, Guy Sacre etc.). Twice a finalist in the Concours des Grands Amateurs de piano, third grand prize at the Milosz Magin contest, he has given numerous recitals and chamber music concerts. He played Grieg's concerto and Beethoven's Fantaisie Chorale with the orchestra of Bourg-la- Reine's conservatory at the Salle Gaveau in Paris. Passionate about chamber music since childhood, he regularly plays with his brother in piano-flute duet.
