With his powerful virtuoso playing, Emmanuel Ceysson sweeps away all the clichés associated with his instrument. He has earned the highest international distinctions and prizes, including the Young Concert Artist International Auditions, the International Harp Competition, the prestigious ARD Competition in Munich, and is the first harpist to win all three major international events.
Ceysson has been a visiting professor at London's Royal Academy of Music and has taught at the International Summer Music Academy in Nice since 2010. His recordings with Naxos, Naïve, Clavès, MDG, and others include solo, concerto, and chamber repertoire, and have received universal acclaim. He often gives Master Classes in the course of his domestic and foreign tours.
Prior to being chosen as Principal Harpist of New York's Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, he was for nine years Harpist of the Opéra National de Paris.
