L'accordéonste Belge Philippe Thuriot ce produit depuis 30 ans sur les scènes internationales

After graduating at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen under Mogens Ellegaards supervision, his career took a high flight. He toured with Les Ballets C de la B, the international dance company of Alain Platel, performing La Tristeza Complice (1996) and Pitié (2008) throughout Europe, the USA, Brazil and Congo. Philippe Thuriot was invited to play with orchestras like Oxalys, Het Collectief (Reinbert De Leeuw), Il Gardellino, Ictus, De koninklijke muntschouwburg (Patrick Davin), Klangforum Wien, BJO and WDR jazz orchestra. Various composers wrote an accordion concerto especially for Thuriot: Dick Van der Harst, Peter Vermeersch , and Dirk D’ase (in the Wiener Konzerthaus)

In 2015 he recorded the Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach for the Warner Classics / Klara label. In 2018 he recorded a second solo disc with own arrangements of music by Couperin and Ravel. Both cd’s were highly praised by the international music press and received favourable reviews.

He performed at numerous international festivals such as Crete Senesi in Tuscany, in honour of the 70th birthday of Philippe Herreweghe. He also played together, amongst others, with Ellery Eskelin, René Lussier, Uri Caine, Mark Feldman and Maria Schneider, each of them a master in the jazz scene.

Right now he is working on a few new projects: I Silenti (music by Monteverdi, arranged by Fabrizio Cassol and Tcha Limberger) Besides that, he is also creating two solo-performances: Bach In Time (improvisations on J.S. Bach) and Made in France (from French baroque to French musette). As can clearly be deducted from all stated above, Phillipe is a musical centipede, his interests ranging from jazz and improvisation to classical music
