DISTINCTIONS

These international competitions include those of Ile de France and Jean Françaix in Paris area, as well as the Franz Liszt in the Netherlands.

Her impressive performance has been referenced by ClassicFM and CMuse in their respective listings of the hardest pieces ever written for the piano. Stéphanie Elbaz’s performances of most of these listed pieces are available on her YouTube channel.
