Honored with the revered title of Steinway Artist, Vincent Larderet has attracted international recognition for the exceptional intensity of his performances. Praised as one of the best pianists of our time(Neue Musikzeitung, Germany),for his very lyrical playing(Crescendo Magazine, Belgium) and his multi-timbredsound (Fanfare, USA), he makes the piano equal to an orchestra(Classica, France) with a wide range of fascinating pianistic colors(Piano News, Germany). His very personal and deeply inspired interpretations "of utter integrity" while including a "rare melding of the intellectual with the visceral" (International Piano, UK) are often compared to the piano legends such as Arrau, Michelangeli, Pollini, Zimerman and Brendel. Nominated for the "International Classical Music Awards" and Classical Revelationby Adami winner at Midem in Cannes, he is considered as one of the leading French pianists of his generation. Internationally renowned as a Ravel specialist, he worked in Paris with Carlos Cebro who passed on to him the stylistic and musical tradition of Vlado Perlemuter and studied Ravels complete works on Perlemuters personal scores annotated during the latters collaboration with the composer. He graduated from Lübecks Musikhochschule (Germany) with the famous pianist Bruno-Leonardo Gelber and was a prize-winner in several international piano competitions including Maria Canals in Barcelona, A.M.A Calabria (Italy) and Brest international Piano Competition (France). He is also a beneficiary of the Orpheum Foundation for the Advancement of Young Soloists in Switzerland.

He has performed worldwide at prestigious venues, international festivals and concert series including Zurich Tonhalle, Barcelona Palau de la Musica, Washington Kennedy Center, Tokyo Toppan Hall, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, Potton Hall and London Kings Place (UK), Romanian Athenaeum, Cannes Palais des Festivals, Cité de la Musique, Salle Gaveau, Schleswig Holstein Musik Festival, Festival Pianistico Busoni, Le French May, Piano Texas, Fantastic Pianist Series, Besançon Festival, La Roque d'Anthéron and La folle journée. He also devoted himself intensively to chamber music with distinguished artists including Emmanuelle Bertrand, Yi-Bing Chu, Michel Dalberto, Sol Gabetta, Pavel Sporcl and the Debussy Quartet. Among the renowned conductors and orchestras which whom he has recently collaborated include Salvador Brotons, Giuseppe Cataldo, Daniel Kawka, Eric Lederhandler, Grigor Palikarov, György G. Ráth, Robert Trevino, Stefanos Tsialis, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (USA), Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice, Sinfonia Varsovia, A. Rubinstein Philharmonic, Filarmonica George Enescu, Orchestra Simfonica di Sanremo, Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès, Czech Virtuosi, Ose Symphonic Orchestra and City Chamber Orchestra of HK.

In March 2024 Avie records released the Volume One of Four in a first-ever exhaustive set of Ravel's complete works for solo piano featuring numerous world premieres.

"Expansive and full-bodied readings [...] alluring phrasings and ravishing high-register tracery [...] Larderet gives his fervent all in the Second Sonata[...] excellent production values also deserve mention and praise" Read complete review
Jed Distler, Gramophone Magazine

"Larderet makes every chord shine in all its complexity, compellingly builds up the small sound dramas, gives the large pieces that aura of sublime violence that does not let go of the listener until the end; and thus captivates for 87 minutes with the only interruption of the CD change. And incidentally, adding to all the poetry, he turns out to be one of the best pianists of our time.”  Read complete review
Christoph Schlüren, Neue Musikzeitung

"Perfectly at ease in this contrasted universe, Vincent Larderet, depending on the pieces, demonstrates the endurance of a marathon runner or the precision of a miniaturist. Devoid of effects (but not of brilliance), never brutal, his approach is elegant, rigorous, concerned with balance and nuance." Read complete review
