Jean-Michel Dubé's Biography
In addition to being the winner of the CANIMEX Canadian Music Competition’s Stepping Stone 2017 edition, Jean-Michel Dubé has also distinguished himself on the international scene during that same year by winning the German Piano Open International Competition with the best interpretation of the imposed work, and by being a finalist in the Piana del Cavaliere International Piano Competition. Jean-Michel Dubé is also ranked in the 2017 edition of CBC Radio’s “30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30.”
Winner of the Pierre Mantha Prize at the Prix d’Europe Competition in 2016, Jean-Michel was also granted the John Newmark Award, having captured the jury’s attention with his musical and aesthetic abilities. In 2017, he was invited to give a public recital that was recorded in the studios of France Musique and broadcasted on “Génération jeunes interprètes”, a program dedicated to international emerging musicians.
Jean-Michel’s first CD release with the Société Métropolitaine du Disque / Espace 21 label is dedicated to Quebecer composer André Mathieu’s piano works. The album was chosen as the “Classical album of the month for November 2016” by classical music magazine La Scena Musicale. A second CD was just released.
