This recording now bears his unique artistic signature, which earned him immediate and unanimous recognition: a “masterstroke” crowned with a Diapason d’Or Découverte.
His authentic personality and poetic sense were also noticed at the 2019 International Long-Thibaud-Crespin Competition, of which he is laureate. Previously, he had been distinguished across the Channel, winning in 2016 the First Prize and the Audience Prize at the James Mottram International Piano Competition in Manchester.

His play, like his smile and his look, sincere and fair, combines this perfect balance that touches the mind and the heart, between tenderness and willpower, reverie and energy. Clément Lefebvre has noble words and poetry at his fingertips. »
