Blue Songs

FRANCE INFO TV - Michel Mompontet
Un vrai chef d’oeuvre, un trésor. Sincèrement c’est un disque qui m’a absolument bouleversé. Denis Levaillant, le grand public ne sait pas forcément qui il est, mais je peux vous assurer que tous les musiciens savent très bien qu’il est un maître incontournable.

LE MONDE - Francis Marmande
L’album inclassable et impressionnant d’un pianiste français d’avant-garde. La quintessence en solo de son impressionnante conception de la musique. Attention ! Avant-garde pour grand public. Simplicité déconcertante. Plaisir étonné.



Contemporary Works Vol3

I am delighted to announce the release of the third volume of the collection Contemporary Works that I am developing with SUPERPITCH/BMG.

Ten excerpts of my chamber music are now available for audiovisual professionals.

Publisher’s presentation: « Composer extraordinaire Denis Levaillant is back with a new set of somber, poignant pieces where a cold loneliness reigns, only to be rivaled by the artist’s personal, almost trademarked version of desolation. Unsettling, bleak, sometimes downright depressing, these mysterious, classical contemporary tracks will keep haunting you, long after you’ve heard them. They also confer their tense, suspenseful and orchestral quality to any drama or thriller, architecture documentary or culture piece, avant-garde art house film or film noir in need of a touch of European flair. We love weird. »


Contemporary Works - Vol.2

Contemporary Works Vol2

I am delighted to present you my new album CONTEMPORARY WORKS, the second of a new collection that I develop with the label SuperPitch, worldwide distributed by BMG - Artist Series - 

Editor’s presentation: “French composer Denis Levaillant’s neo-classical compositions never disappoint and always hit every single spot and a wide range of emotions. Here, he strikes again and displays his usual emotional mastery with a delicate palette that explores all the shades of the human heart: dark, sad, melancholic, gloomy, hopeful, tender, peaceful, dreamy… Levaillant's sense of drama always brilliantly illustrates both documentary and feature films."

Contemporary Works - VOL 1

I am delighted to present you my new album CONTEMPORARY WORKS, the first of a new collection that I develop with the label SuperPitch, distributed by BMG - Artit Series -
Editor’s presentation: “Helmed by French composer and pianist Denis Levaillant, here comes a collection of contemporary classical music. The compositions, recorded with a small ensemble, touch the heart and trigger a wide range of emotions, at times evocative and tender, at others melancholic, ominous. Levaillant explores the desolate void and intricacies the human soul offers, with a depth both abyssal and poignant. Art imitates Life, and Life imitates Art.”

New Album - Electro Space Piano

Electro Space Piano Cover

A new album, ELECTRO SPACE PIANO. It makes it possible to follow the historical evolution of digital sound treatments since it brings together three works for piano and electronics. These pieces are all organized in the same way, a concert piano dialoguing with an orchestra of transformed piano sounds: Piano transit, pioneering work in this field (1983, commissioned by the Ministère de la Culture), Elektrospacepiano (2003, commissioned by the Ina-Grm) and the latest, entirely realized in my studio, Piano Augmented: More Lights (2019).

Shita Kiri Suzume - Denis Levaillant @Ars Musica (2016)

We have just received the beautiful film of Shita-Kiri Suzume, a new work by Denis Levaillant and we decided to share it with you!

Shita-Kiri Suzume is composed for shakuhachi (sublimely played by Reison Kuroda) and ensemble (here Musiques Nouvelles directed by Jean-Paul Dessy). The show was created in November 2016 at the Ars Musica Festival in Brussels, with the live drawings of Kan Takahama and Vincent Fortemps.


Slightly 'minimal' piano sequences are processed and mixed with electro sounds; each track appears in three versions: mix, the piano alone, and electro alone. The resulting music is very original. This album is part of the project SoloPianoSolo Piano augmented Recital.

Augmented piano recital

I developed this project with Marc Piera, sound director at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris, where he perfected an avant-garde sound system.
Throughout the recital, the piano is amplified and transformed, while the sound is spatialised.
As it goes along, the electro joins in the dance.
