Born in 1980 in Tambov in Russia (or it only one year will reside), of a father artist and a mother professor, the 28 years of existence of Morgan ACKERMANN do not resemble any other.
It is at the 2 years age that it makes its first stammerings pianistic, encouraged by his grandmother lyric singer.
But the atavism matrilinéaire, the put on the track of the literature more than that of the musique.
A age the 15 years it obtains, by correspondence its baccalaureat, with the only mention well. After two years of preparatory class and a year at the higher teacher training school it made its decision and turns definitively to the music.
After having made in parallel its musical studies with the academy of MOSCOW, it improves near Russian Masters with the Royal Academy of BRUSSELS. It leaves for Siberia or it will reside at it during three years, working with a Master of which it keeps the name jealously: « these three years remain the great mystery of my life, even my parents did not receive my letters that in a sporadic way. »
It results from it that after these years, its pianistic technique and its musical approach had radically changed, finished the boy with the disproportionate ego in rebellion against the system, a quasi organic relation with the instrument had settled, leaving room to an accomplished musician and an opened out man.
After many recitals in Eastern Europe then in Asia, it is during a recital that it gave in TOKYO in April 2002, that Sacha D’ORMAN which had heard it for the first time at the Vasarely foundation in Aix in Provence in France seven years before, proposes a French round to him.
I wished to write these some lines in homage to the large decouvror of talents which is Sacha D’ORMAN, as with the friendship which has bound us for more than 20 years and especially for always intact fascination that I had by hearing this « demon with the face of angel » which is Morgan ACKERMANN, in a small room, close to TOKYO, one evening of April 2002
