A versatile, passionate musician, Mathieu Gaudet has pursued a remarkable career as a soloist, chamber musician, and conductor for the past 20 years. He commands a vast repertoire of works and has performed across Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia. His concerts and recordings are regularly broadcast on the French and English services of the CBC.
His first recording, a thoughtful interpretation of Rachmaninoff’s 24 preludes, appeared in 2008 to both critical and popular acclaim. His second recording, devoted to Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze, Op. 6 and Fantasie, Op. 17 was nominated for a 2012 Opus Prize in the category of “Best recording of the year – Romantic, Post-Romantic, and Impressionist Music.” Since 2019, Mr. Gaudet has been recording the complete piano works of Franz Schubert on the Analekta label, a project that will ultimately comprise a dozen albums.
Mathieu Gaudet obtained a Master of Music degree from the prestigious Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he studied with Julian Martin, subsequently perfecting his training with Leon Fleisher. In 2007 he completed a Doctor of Music in Performance from the Université de Montréal Faculty of Music under Paul Stewart.
