RIOPY is a composer-pianist based in London. Born and raised in the French countryside, RIOPY (Jean-Philippe Riopy) began to teach himself the piano at an early age when he discovered an abandoned instrument in his village. Without access to printed scores, he began to compose music in his head. His international career began when he moved to London at the age of 21.
From playing in private clubs in Paris and London (including Soho House, Chiltern Firehouse and the Mayfair Arts Club for its reopening), RIOPY has gone on to perform at London’s Royal Opera House and Steinway Hall. His unique, rhythmically-driven approach to performing his own compositions soon brought him to the attention of the piano firm Steinway & Sons, which named RIOPY a Young Steinway Artist. He has given recitals at Milan’s Piano City and Hamburg’s Reeperbahn festivals, at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, and in the London St Pancras Clock Tower.
RIOPY’s career developed in parallel in Los Angeles, with his atmospheric, cinematic works reaching a broader international audience through film, television, documentaries and advertising. RIOPY’s recordings of his own music are featured in film trailers for The Danish Girl, Mr Turner, Jimmy’s Hall, A Royal Night Out, The Sense of an Ending and The Shape of Water among others.
His piano works have been heard in documentaries broadcast on the UK networks BBC, ITV and Channel 4, as well as in advertising campaigns for Armani, Bentley, Samsung, Mercedes, Ikea and more.
