Born in the French countryside and largely self-taught, RIOPY (Jean-Philippe Rio-Py) has been named a Young Steinway Artist in recognition of his rhythmically driven, freely expressive approach to performing his own compositions, which have been featured in trailers to films including The Danish Girl and The Sense of an Ending, and can be heard in documentaries broadcast on UK networks BBC, ITV and Channel 4, and in advertising campaigns for Ikea, Armani, Samsung and more. ​ RIOPY’s debut single for Warner Classics,was released on Friday 21 April 2017,I love you, an introspective yet rhapsodic meditation for solo piano. “I didn’t choose the title; the music chose it for me,” he explains. “It started with a minimalist succession of notes I was playing obsessively – ethereal, tiny, delicate patterns – plunging me into a simultaneous state of heightened focus and bliss.” “The most beautiful things come from love, and this piece is a reminder; even after playing it a thousand times, I never get tired of it – as love is something that doesn’t just stop or grow static; it renews itself and evolves … I hope it touches the souls of listeners as it still touches mine. Please share it with someone you love.” ​ RIOPY’s debut album is coming out on 02.02.2018
