He then continued his musical journey in contact with several great personalities in the world of music, allowing him to acquire a training that was both solid and rich in various influences. He was thus advised and followed by Janusz Olejniczak in Warsaw, Bernard Ringeissen in Paris, Daniel Blümenthal and Diane Andersen in Brussels, but also by Byron Janis in New York, a pianist with whom he had a very special relationship.

Maxence Pilchen's vast repertoire, for solo piano and for orchestra, has earned him acclaim from critics and the musical world for his interpretations of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin as well as for Debussy, Rachmaninov, Stravinsky, Albert Roussel or Prokofiev and for contemporary works in the creation of which he participated. The breadth of his repertoire has also enabled him to be awarded at numerous international competitions including Porto, Barcelona, Epinal and Rome. He has been nominated twice by RTBF as "Soloist of the Year" to the group Radios Francophones Publiques, which brings together the major French, Swiss, Canadian and Belgian broadcasters. He also received the Maurice Lefranc Prize in Brussels for a Young Hope.

Within his varied repertoire, Frédéric Chopin has long occupied a special place in the career and the heart of Maxence Pilchen. It is therefore quite natural that in 2015 he dedicated his first CD to the 24 Préludes by the romantic composer (Paraty).
His subtle and personal interpretation has been hailed by numerous critics such as L'Education Musicale, Crescendo Magazine sensitive to this “new reading of the Preludes” and Classica which awarded him four stars. Building on this success, the pianist is preparing the recording of a second CD still with Paraty.
