Yves obtained seven first prizes of the conservatoire de Paris, an absolute record shared with Daniel Barenboim. He then worked during three years as a disciple of Aldo Ciccolini before becoming the first occidental pianist to get the first grand prize of the Schumann contest in Zwickau.
Yves plays all around the world and acts as artistic director of the international Chopin meetings. Specialist of Chopin, Yves set up his recording studio in Nohant, where Chopin used to live with George Sand. Yves was the first musician to produce a DVD in which are recorded the 24 op.28 preludes of Chopin in parallel on a modern Pleyel concert piano and a Pleyel 1838, believed to have been played by the great Frederic Chopin himself.
