Jean-Marc Luisada (born 3 June 1958) is a French pianist born in Bizerte, Tunisia. He started on the piano at six years old, "the normal age".[1]

At the age of 16 he began studies at the Conservatoire de Paris under Dominique Merlet and Marcel Ciampi (piano) and Genevieve Joy-Dutilleux (chamber music). He has also studied with Nikita Magaloff and Paul Badura-Skoda.

In 1985 he won 5th prize at International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw.

At 29 he had performed in Europe, the United States, and Asia[1] and was known as a performer of "outstanding brilliance".[2]

He signed an exclusive agreement with RCA Red Seal in 1998.[3] Among his recordings are the waltzes and mazurkas of Chopin and the infrequently-heard chamber version of the first Chopin piano concerto, recorded with the Talich Quartet.
