Enrico Noel Czmorek was born on 17 January 2003 in Budapest, Hungary. His musical ability was already apparent even in early childhood. At just three years old he was already showing great pleasure
in showing off his musical ability, and thanks to a keen ear, learning to play the piano came to him easily.
Enrico Noel has taken part in a number of national and international competitions since 2011, where he has always finished in first place and often achieved a perfect score, such as
In November 2014, Enrico Noel was one of only 12 children in the world to receive the fantastic invitation to an exclusive week-long masterclass with the renowned pianist Lang Lang at the 2014 Allianz Junior Music Camp in Barcelona. His concert debut was on 13 October 2015 at Forum Daun in Daun, Germany, where he performed his first solo piano recital.
Since 2016 he has attended the Pre-College Cologne as a young student under Prof. Andreas Frölich at the Cologne University of Music. In July 2016, at just 13 years old, Enrico became the youngest artist and brand ambassador in the official CASIO Artist Pool, representing the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid which he uses today to practice and compose.
He was born in 1980, and he quickly started to play classical piano at the age of 5. Creative and full of energy, his sense of rhythm draws us inside his world inspired by boogie, ragtime, stride and improvisation.
He recorded his first ragtime album in 1996 with Fabrice Eulry, who excels in boogie, and then started to perform at concerts. The success of his free performances of Bach or Chopin motivated him to compose again based on Haendel or Mozart compositions. He is a genuine virtuoso, and what makes his creations attractive is the alliance between classic music and rhythms inspired by other music styles.
He continued his solo career with a One Man Show: between classic and jazz, from Chopin to Ray Charles, he shares humor and fantasies. In 2012, he was Gad Elmaleh’s double for the movie “Un Bonheur n’arrive jamais seul”, using his own compositions.
Recognizable by his red suspenders, he asked one of our resellers help to appropriate himself the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid GP-300 by customizing it in red!
For his skills, his personality and his ingenuity, Pierre-Yves PLAT is, since 2017, a CELVIANO Grand Hybrid ambassador.
