Georges Daccache



Georges Daccache is a pianist and composer who has called Paris home since 2004. He is one of the rare pianists who is proficient in western and Arabo-Eastern repertoires, as well as the Syro-Maronite sacred music repertoire. This proficiency is initially reflected in his degrees from three different music schools: the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Lebanon (under Laure Akiki's guidance), the Russian Conservatory "Serge Rachmaninoff" (studying with Claire Lizé Mélonie), and the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris (under the tutelage of Michael Wladkowski). Additionally, he holds the French State Diploma in piano, awarded by the "Pole of Higher Education of Music Ile-de-France."

Passionate about teaching, he became an expert in teaching music to toddlers starting at age three, following his diploma from the European Suzuki organization in London. Throughout his studies, he received guidance from leading pianists and educators such as Solomon Mikowski, Ramzi Yassa, Paul Badura-Skoda, Hamish Milne, John Ferguson, and others. He has been recognized with the Second Prize of the Chatou City Competition in 2010 and has received awards from the Flame competition in Paris and the Monrond-les-Bains competition.

He is a confirmed concert artist, performing as a soloist, chamber musician, organist, and choirmaster in various countries around the world, including Lebanon, France, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Hungary, Colombia, and Venezuela. He has shared the stage with renowned artists such as soprano Maire-José Matar, tenor Father Naoum Khoury, mezzo-soprano Roula Safar, baritone-bass Shadi Tarabay, violist Emmanuel Raynaud, pianist Miguel Angel Estrella, Parisii Quartet, Symphonic Choir Montpellier, Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra, and others. His performances have taken place at prestigious venues such as the Elysée Palace, UNESCO Palace, Hôtel de Ville de Paris, Salle Cortot, Theatre Adyar, Château d'Orion Festival, Oriental Nights Festival in Dijon, Musicometa Festival in Rome, Fondazione Siotto Festival in Cagliari, Palace of the United Nations in Geneva, Institut Français of Budapest, Molière Theater in Brussels, Theater of Fine Arts in Bogota, and more.

He is deeply committed to contemporary Lebanese musical creation and strives to promote it as widely as possible. He was involved with the CPML (Lebanese Musical Heritage Center) at the time of its inauguration in Beirut, Lebanon, in 2012. He is dedicated to the dissemination of "Lebanese Musical Heritage" to showcase its richness and preserve it for future generations. He organizes and conducts concert-lectures to present and promote the works of Lebanese composers. In November 2019, he co-founded the first festival fully dedicated to Lebanese composers, "Les Musicales du Liban," in Paris, together with his friend Zeina Saleh-Kayali, vice-president of the Lebanese Musical Heritage Center.

Currently, he serves as a professor at the Conservatory of Lagny-sur-Marne and the Suzuki Institute in Paris. Simultaneously, he holds the position of organist and choirmaster at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lebanon in Paris. In addition to his intense musical activity, he holds a PhD in economic history from Sorbonne University.

Inspired by Maronite liturgy and Lebanese traditional music, he dedicates himself to composing personal works influenced by these sources. Among his compositions are works for piano such as "Maronite Suite for Piano in D" (2007), "Lebanese Suite for Piano" (2009), "Offrandes" (2011), and "Lunga Nakriz" (2016), as well as vocal works in Arabic, including "Lord fill you with his grace" (text of the Maronite liturgy), "I'm calling you from the top of the Cedars" (text by Jean KHOURY), "O sea of perfumes" (text of the Maronite liturgy), "That the Lord is good lounage" (text of St Isaac of Antioch), "O God the verb" (text of the Maronite liturgy), and "Where thought" (text by Tagore).
