    French, of Mexican and Lebanese origins, Simon Ghraichy has become a key figure in the classical scene. A virtuoso and moving pianist, sometimes presented as the “rock star of the piano”, he is respected by his peers as much for his irreproachable virtuosity as for his strong biases. Accustomed to major world venues, he has recorded two albums with Deutsche Grammophon: “Héritages” in 2016 and “33” in 2019. The program of this concert includes two pieces taken from his last record, the common thread of which is an “Inner Voice” . Alkan and Ramirez evoke for Simon his former phobia for water, linked to a trauma from his childhood. The most difficult of the four books constituting Iberia is the one played today, it was first given in Paris in February 1909 shortly before Albeniz's death. The version of Iberia often adapted for the guitar made it a world famous piece. The piano transcription of works from the symphonic or lyrical repertoire is a genre that allows the performer to give free rein to his virtuosity and creativity. Liszt excelled there and we cannot separate the names of the composer and the performer: Simon Ghraichy, through these pieces makes us hear in another way, Bach, Mozart and Verdi.
