Pierre-Laurent Boucharlat played his first concerto with orchestra at the age of 13, and gave his first recital at the age of 15.

A winner of international competitions (Spedidam Prize, Darius Milhaud Prize), his notoriety became assured in 2000, when his CD, a live recording of the 24 studies of Chopin, was released and favourably announced in, Piano Le Magazine.

He has since been invited to perform in many countries in Europe (Russia, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Greece, Czech Republic, Poland, Turkey, Macedonia), in Asia (Kazakhstan, Siberia) and America (United States, Canada, Mexico).

He can be heard regularly in recital and as a soloist with orchestra, and in chamber music, notably with the Ensemble Promethée, which he founded in 2005. He collaborates alongside recognized partners such as Pascal Amoyel, Vadim Tchijik, Philippe Bernold, Emmanuelle Bertrand, David Bismuth, Nicolas Dautricourt, Florent Héau, Mark Drobinsky, Hugo Ticciati, the Archimede Quartett, and the Wiener Kammersymphonie.

He also plays with Chamber Orchestras such as the Orchestre de Chambre de Toulouse (France), the Baltic Neopolis Orchestra (Poland), the Camerata du Rhône (France), and the Ensemble Artemus (France).

Recently, French Television (France 2, France 3 and TLM) began filming several of his concerts and broadcasting both here as well as on Russian, Catalan, Italian, Bulgarian, and Polish television.
