« Lydie Solomon’s biography
.-“Premier Prix” with the highest honours – Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris at eighteen in Jacques Rouvier’s class.
.-Graduated from ESSEC (Ecole Supérieure des Sciences Economiques et Commerciales) with an MBA in Cergy, France.
.-Trained as an actress at the Cours Florent and at the Actors Studio en Paris.
.-A pianist, an actress, a composer, a singer, Lydie Solomon follows an astounding artistic path, featuring:
– her album Eldorado : de Padre Soler à Piazzolla (2011) elected “Coup de coeur” by Alain Duault on RTL,
– her album De Chopin à Cuba (2014), highlighted by the media in France (France 5, L'Est Républicain, La Dépêche du Midi, Radio Notre Dame, Radio Libertaire…) as well as abroad, in Poland, in Abu Dhabi, in Mexico,
– concert tours in Cuba (2012), in Poland (2014-2015-2016), in Mexico (2014), in Abu Dhabi (where she opened the Abu Dhabi Classics 2014-2015 international season), in Belgium (2015-2016),
– an autobiographic pianist role in the long movie Vivre ! by the late Yvon Marciano (2009),
– a role in the television series Profilage on TF1 (2013).
Lydie (Waï) composed latin-jazz songs, released in 2009 an album, Harmonie (highlighted in the magazine Jazz Hot), featuring a North-American, Argentinian and Brazilian rhythm section, and performed concerts as a singer (Le Duc des Lombards, Le Baiser Salé…).
On February 11th, 2016, for the first time Lydie Solomon played in concert (“Chopin: the conquest of Europe”, in Paris) on a piano from Frédéric Chopin’s era: a Pleyel “Petit Patron” piano from 1839, restored by Amerigo Olivier Fadini.
A piano child prodigy (she played Ode to Joy by Beethoven by ear at the age of two), Lydie Solomon fascinates the media with her innovative career path: in France (Le Figaro, Le Parisien, France 2, RFI, KTO TV…) but also abroad.
