Elizabeth Sombart

Born in Strasbourg, Elizabeth Sombart started studying piano aged 7 and performed in public for the first time when she was 11. She completed her training with great masters and she furthered a study on the use of breathing in piano with Sergiu Celibidache at Mainz University where she attended courses in musical phenomenology for a further 10 years.

Founder and President of the Résonnance Foundation, she has devoted herself for the last 25 years to the training of pianists in “Résonnance pedagogy” during master-classes at universities and high schools, in Switzerland and abroad. Her unique and innovating teaching, the Résonnance Pedagogy : phenomenology of sound and gesture is the result of 30 years of research and experience.
