About Ambre...

Ambre began piano studies at the age of 3 and gave her first public concert at age 5. 

In 1989, at age 11, Ambre achieved a World Record, which she still holds, when she received the Associate and Licentiate Diplomas of music in the same year. 

At 16, she received the First Prize in an International Music Competition held in Argentina, South America.  The following year Ambre was invited to return to Argentina to perform the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 as her debut with the Cordoba Symphony Orchestra. This performance was recorded live, released as a CD and has been acclaimed by the Rachmaninoff Society of USA as one of the finest interpretations of this piece. 

At 16, Ambre recorded and released a CD of music by Franz Liszt titled ‘Devotion’ which was funded by Australian artist Arthur Boyd who was astounded with Ambre’s natural ability and  invited her to be first Artist-In Residence at his Shoalhaven Property ‘Bundanon’ on the South Coast of Australia. 

Ambre has performed both solo and with Orchestra throughout Switzerland, England, Italy, Spain, Poland, North and South America, New Zealand and China. 

In 2006 Renowned Hollywood film writer and composer Lalo Schifrin was commissioned to write a unique Double Concerto for Jazz Trumpet, Classical Piano and Symphony Orchestra especially for Ambre and James Morrison.  Ambre traveled to Schifrin’s home in Los Angeles where she played the piece to Lalo who has dedicated the Double Concerto to her. The World Premiere performance was held in Sydney at the Opera House with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Schifrin conducting in July 2007.

Ambre has collaborated with various artists including Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, the Indian legendary slide guitarist who won a Grammy for his album with Ry Cooder. They united with their unique and individual styles playing a special one off fusion concert at the Sydney Opera House billed as ‘Raag Beethoven’.
