Born in Besançon, Cassard was trained at the Conservatoire de Paris where he won two first prizes, for piano (Dominique Merlet's class) and for chamber music (Geneviève Joy's class) in 1982. He then spent two years (1983–85), at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (Hans Graf's and Erik Werba's classes)
In 2012, Philippe becomes soprano Natalie Dessay’s exclusive pianist. They have performed in France, England (Barbican and Wigmore Hall in London), Ireland, Japan, Russia, Austria (Musikverein Vienna), Canada and USA (Carnegie Hall in New York)… The duet has recorded Debussy Songs, a French Mélodies album (Erato), and a Schubert’s Lieder programme (Sony Classical). He has recorded several discs dedicated to Schubert.
Having presented more than 400 music programs on Radio France, we hope to bring this whole new experience of score-reading and personal interpretation to our audience.
