About Antoine Rivard-Landry

First prize winner of the 2023 edition of the Auguste-Descarries competition, Antoine Rivard-Landry is a pianist from Montreal known for his expressivity, on-stage charisma and confidence. Versatile and engaged musician, he made his international debut in 2018 with the Lebanese National Symphony Orchestra alongside chef Harout Fazlian. He has studied with Robert McDonald at the Juilliard School of Music and in Montreal with Jean Saulnier and Richard Raymond.


Antoine Rivard-Landry establishes himself early on as a soloist by playing with many orchestras. At 12 years old, he headlines his first concert with the Orchestre Métropolitain. He has since had the chance to perform with many ensembles from Québec including the Orchestre symphonique de Trois-Rivières with chef Jacques Lacombe, as well as the Orchestre de l’Université de Montréal.


Antoine is also celebrated for the many recitals he has performed over the years. He was invited to play at the Chapelle Historique du Bon-Pasteur and the Espace Kin, amongst others. He also performed many recitals with the concert series Orford on the Road. His repertoire being as personal as it is expansive and varied, he enjoys performing works from the classical repertoire as well as contemporary. Antoine recently recorded the creation of two piano toccatas composed by up-and-coming Quebec composer Francis Battah. He also takes part in many chamber music ensembles alongside artists such as countertenor and flautist Hugo Perina, mezzo soprano Mélissa Zerbib and drag queen Miss Badessa.


Antoine Rivard-Landry is the 2013 first-prize winner of the Orchestre de Trois-Rivières competition and second-place laureate at the OSM competition in 2012. Recently, he was a finalist at the Orford Music Award, at the Université de Montréal concerto competition and at the 2022 edition of the Stepping Stone, part of the Canadian Music Competition. During the summer of 2024, he will take part in an artistic residency at Orford Music as the winner of the Auguste-Descarries competition.


Having a major interest in social issues, Antoine Rivard-Landry  stays engaged with his community by participating in workshops such as ‘’RESPIRER’’ and ‘’La voix harmonisée’’, which are initiatives led by the Opéra de Montréal.
