Sebastien Dupuis plays Chopin and Liszt in a very personal and characteristic way, though, especially in the Liszt, he reminds me of George Cziffra’s playing.

Born in Brussels in 1983, Sebastien studied piano at Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles with Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden, capping off his studies with a master's degree concert at which he performed Tchaikovsky's first piano concerto and the Liszt sonata.
"The subtle play of the pianist, full with delicacy but also with power and sensibility, deeply conquered his audience"
La Depeche, 2011
"Throughout this first CD, Sébastien Dupuis plays like a true musician, sensitive and endearing. The sound is always right, adapted to each composer. Delicate and lively in Mozart, sung and deep in his beautiful 1st Ballad by Chopin, more orchestral and brilliant in Liszt. "
Philippe Cassard, 2014
Not performing. Studying Liszt Etudes and other repertoire.
"Dupuis perfectly understands this music of a poet that makes the tenderness resound as much as the violence; a remarkable piano technique, generous impulses, delicates or sometimes wild, serving a brilliantly excessive work, going from melancholy to exuberance leafing through the genius of Liszt. Dupuis knows Liszt like a brother and gives him life again with a sincere touch, devoted to the composer.”
Pierre Solot, 2007
"My Seefeld colleague, pianist Sébastien Dupuis, is one of the most exciting musicians I have met in Zürich. He is a visionare, a brave man and an excellent teacher. I've enjoyed his concerts and have supported the upcoming Chopin Project. Can't wait to see the results! Highly recommended to anybody who wants to learn classical piano."
" Sebastian Dupuis is not only a talented and sublime Pianist but an excellent piano teacher as well.
He is kind, fun and pleasant to be around and has a brilliant way of teaching while simultaneously spurring the motivation to practice☺️ I always leave my lessons feeling elevated and grateful.
I warmly recommend his lessons to everyone from beginners to experienced pianists."
