Nour Ayadi

Nour Ayadi was born in Casablanca and began playing the piano at the age of 6. At only 17, she was admitted to the Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris and the École Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot, and moved to Paris to pursue her musical career in parallel with a Scientific Terminale and a Baccalauréat which she obtained with the highest honours.

After obtaining her Master's degree at the Conservatoire, Nour pursued a Performer's Diploma and a Master's degree with Nelson Goerner in Geneva.

Nour quickly distinguished herself: at the age of 20 she was the winner of the Prix Cortot. She had distinguished herself also as a First Prizewinner at the Virtuoses du Coeur, at the Baku International Classical Music Competition, and at the S.A.R. Lalla Meryem International Piano Competition.

Nour performed in several festivals: La Roque d'Anthéron, Les Folles Journées de Nantes, the Glafsforden Musik Festival, the Chopin-Nohant Festival, the Lake Como Festival; and performed with several orchestras: Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, the Wiener KammerOrchester and Orchestre de Chambre de Wallonie, which made her collaborate with conductors such as Mikko Frank, Julien Masmondet and Augustin Dumay . She has performed in prestigious halls : Musikverein (Vienna), Flagey et Bozar (Brussels), Philharmonie de Paris and Seine Musicale (Paris)…

Nour also released her first CD in 2020. Today, Nour is supported by the Banque Populaire, the Lieven Piano Foundation, the Académie Musicale de Villecroze and the Gautier Capuçon Foundation.

In parallel to her young career as a soloist, Nour holds a Master's degree in Public Policy from Sciences Po Paris.

Nour is currently Artist in Residence at the Queen Elisabeth Chapel. She just released her second CD featuring works by Liszt and Busoni.
