CMA Paris 15

Born in Paris in 1990, the pianist Louise Akili  graduated from the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris (classes of Anne Le Bozec and Claire Désert) from the Paris-Boulogne Superior Pole (classes of Hugues Leclère and Philippe Ferro).
Holder of the State Diploma CA, she teaches piano at the Chopin Conservatory in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.

Having received valuable advice from Cécile Emery, Macha Belooussova, Christian Ivaldi, Jeff Cohen, Yves Henry and Emmanuel Olivier, she enjoys playing both as a soloist and in chamber music training and enjoys the marriage of the arts, her activity as a dancer being one of the aspects.

It has been heard at the Nohant Chopin Festival, at the Saint-Ursanne Piano Festival in Switzerland, at the Romanian Athenaeum in Bucharest, at the Deauville Books and Music Festival, at the Grand Théâtre de Provence, at the Château d'Ecouen, at the Arsenal de Metz, at the Festival d'Avignon, at the Festival Ars Terra, at the Festival de la Chaise-Dieu, at the Kiosque de Nancy, at the Théâtre Impérial de Compiègne and in Paris at the Center Pompidou, at the Théâtre du Châtelet, at the Museum of Romantic Life, at the Hôtel de Béhague, at the Grand Salon des Invalides, at the Collège des Bernardins, at the Delacroix Museum, at the Petit Palais, at the Théâtre de l'Ile Saint-Louis, Salle Cortot, at the Cercle de l'Union Interalliée, at the Jean-Jacques Henner Museum, at the Hôtel Bedford with the Friends of Maurice Ravel, at the Musée d'Orsay and at the Philharmonie.
She was invited by Gaëlle Le Gallic on France Musique as well as by TV5 Monde on Journal Afrique.

Curious to discover a varied repertoire, the young artist excels in a wide musical range ranging from the Baroque period to contemporary creation within all possible formations.
Louise collaborates regularly with the soprano Axelle Fanyo, the violinists Rachel Koblyakov and Hugues Borsarello, the cellists Thomas Chartré and Raphaël Ginzburg as well as with the composer Olga Neuwirth.

Louise perfected her skills at the 2018 Ravel Academy in the classes of Marie-Josèphe Jude and Miguel Da Silva. 
The quartet formed by Pierre Alvarez, Thomas Levier, Edward Luengo and Louise Akili receives the endowment of the Dany Pouchucq Fund for its interpretation of the Piano Quartet by Guillaume Lekeu (Unfinished).
