I started playing the violin when I was 4 years old. My parents had sought advice from a piano teacher, who having heard me sing, advised them that I start the violin.
According to her, I had a good ear! From then on, I was won over by the sound of this instrument, but it was the fact of playing together that seduced me the most.
Every week, I look forward to the group lessons and the orchestra session where we play together. It was the “playing together” that appealed to me right away.
My violin is a 1737 Guarnerius del Gesù. It was for more than 50 years the violin of the great virtuoso Isaac STERN who played about 50 records with it. It is one of the most beautiful specimens of Guarnerius of which only 60 remain in the world. This one, called “Le Vicomte de Panette” is one of the most famous.
I’ve been playing it since 2005 and it’s decently “My Violin” since last year that I had the chance to acquire it.
I have been teaching at the HEMU in Lausanne since 2014, a prestigious school full of projects. Teaching has given me new perspectives and by teaching young people, I am relearning myself! It is quite natural that we created the “Lausanne Soloists” to continue this notion of collective learning. From February 2019, we will give two concert tours per year. It’s an exciting project!
Would a collaboration with the Rudrat-Béjart workshop be quite unheard of and I look forward to our working together!
The Group received at the end of 2018 at the BFM some extraordinary artists representing symbols that are dear to it: elegance, passion, rising youth and internationality. Renaud Capuçon, an internationally renowned violin virtuoso, performed on a musical program mixing classical and contemporary until his performance met and merged with the work of the Ecole-Atelier Rudra Béjart, for an original and unprecedented show.
