In 2000 he was admitted to the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique in Paris, where he won the 2003 prize in piano with honors and the Diploma of Higher Education in piano and chamber music with distinction. Pfaff has won numerous international competitions. His first recording ("live" in Auvers-sur-Oise) was released in 2010 in DiscAuvers.

Tomorrow's concert, which begins at 8pm, will include Debussy's Syrinx (solo flute) and pieces for Afternoon of a Faun and Bizet's Carmen.
