A native of Paris, Rogé has performed in almost every major concert hall in the world. In the western hemisphere, orchestral appearances include most notably the symphonies of Atlanta, Chicago, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Montreal, Philadelphia, Saint Louis, Seattle, and Toronto.

Rogé became an exclusive Decca recording artist at the age of 17. Since then, he has won many prestigious awards, including two Gramophone Awards, a Grand Prix du Disque and an Edison Award for his interpretations of the Ravel and Saint-Saens concerti.
As part of his Ericourt Artist residency, he will teach classes as well.
