Jean-Philippe Riopy (RIOPY) is a truly singular pianist and composer. After a difficult upbringing in rural France, RIOPY found both solace and success in the piano - despite having no formal training. After being named a prestigious Young Steinway Artist, he was gifted a piano by Coldplay’s Chris Martin to support his work, and from there he quickly rose to global prominence through his original compositions and his mission to spread healing through music. Now, RIOPY's chart-topping albums have made him one of the most-streamed instrumental artists in the world, and he's worked with brands ranging from Armani to Samsung to IKEA, and written music for Oscar-winning films such as The Danish Girl and The Shape of Water.
For this one-night-only Crypt Session, RIOPY will give an intimate, transcendent preview of music from his upcoming Warner Classics album THRIVE, a program which evokes inner strength, and the willpower that leads to positive evolution
Come hear one man's profound journey from struggle to global success, channeled through his soul-expandingly beautiful music.
French-British pianist RIOPY has been in the Billboard Classical charts for nearly 12O weeks with his second album Tree of Light, released in 2O19. It was No.1 in the US for five weeks in January and February 2O22. Today, his music has garnered over 600 million streams.
