I’m a concert pianist, having studied at Yale and the New England Conservatory. After NEC, I moved to Paris, and lived there for 20 years, not counting a trip to the Netherlands to get a performance diploma from the Royal Conservatory. That’s where I met my wife, most of my radio colleagues, and my engineer Erik Hense, who is the brilliant sound-designer for all my radio documentaries.

A bio: Born in Tennessee, with degrees from Yale, NEC, and the Royal Conservatory of the Netherlands, pianist Guy Livingston wowed critics and audiences with his successful One Minute CD. Sixty composers each wrote one minute for Livingston, and the project was featured on NPR, in The New York Times, Le Monde, Sports Illustrated, and was praised by the Atlanta Constitution as the ‘party record of the year.’ Livingston is based in Paris and travels widely as a pianist and director. He has recorded three solo CDs for the Wergo label, and appeared as soloist with the Orchestre Nationale de France and the Chicago Symphony. Major productions include the Nuit de John Cage, the Antheil Centennial Festival, and the William Bolcom in Paris Festival. He is the weekly radio host of American Highways.
