Professor

Adrien Boisseau

Shortly after Adrien Boisseau discovered music at the age of five, he decided to dedicate his life to it. From that point on, he loved playing his instrument, the viola, as well the piano and singing. After having attended the music school in Nevers and the regional conservatory in Saint-Maur, Adrien Boisseau was admitted to Jean Sulem’s class at the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique at the age of 14. In 2009 he attracted the jury’s attention at the International Max-Rostal Competition, and won the 1st prize and the audience prize at the age of just 17. In 2011, he gave his debut solo performance at the Berliner Philharmonie with the German Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Krzysztof Urbánski.

After having received his diploma from the Paris Conservatoire with the highest accolade, “summa cum laude”, Adrien Boisseau continued his studies with Tabea Zimmermann in Berlin. It was through his work with her that he developed his remarkable sense of style and his focus on a harmonious tone. During this time he also enjoyed numerous competition successes, such as in Tokyo in 2012 (4th prize and the audience prize) or in Moscow in 2013 (2nd prize). He also began to appear as a soloist with renowned orchestras, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, the Kammerakademie Potsdam, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Moscow Soloists, the Liechtenstein Symphony Orchestra and the Zagreb Soloists.

Since 2013 he has been perfecting his skills with renowned teachers at the Kronberg Academy: András Schiff, Nobuko Imai, Steven Isserlis, Christoph Eschenbach and Ivry Gitlis. He has attended inspirational academies such as Prussia Cove in Cornwall or Verbier in Switzerland – two magical places in which he can allow his musical ideas to unfold, and liaise with the best young soloists of his generation. He also received a scholarship from the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein and participated in the intensive music weeks and other activities organised there.

Chamber music has always offered Adrien Boisseau the chance to express his innermost feelings. He has been a guest at numerous festivals, including Musique à Deauville, the Festival Radio France Montpellier, the Gstaad Menuhin Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Les Moments Musicaux in La Baule, Flâneries musicales de Reims, the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Stavanger Festival, FESTIVAL NEXT GENERATION in Bad Ragaz and many more. His chamber music partners have included Anne Queffélec, Olivier Charlier, Henri Demarquette, Eric Le Sage, Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, Adam Laloum and Edgar Moreau.

In 2014, Adrien Boisseau was awarded the title of Young Artist of the Year at the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA). He played Max Bruch’s “Romanze” with the Polish Sinfonia Iuventus orchestra under the baton of Josá Maria Florencio in the Warsaw Philharmonic. The jury described him as follows: “Despite his young age, Adrien Boisseau is, quite apart from his technical skill and his beautiful tone, a particulary mature and introspective musician.”

In 2015, Adrien Boisseau’s life changed dramatically: He became a member of the Quatuor Ebène, one of the most renowned string quartets worldwide. He appeared with the quartet in major concert venues such as the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, the Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Carnegie Hall, and played with renowned musicians such as Mitsuko Uchida, Matthias Goerne, Anne Sofie von Otter, Nicolas de Angelis, and Martin Fröst. In the same year, his first CD appeared under OehmsClassics label; his Schumann recital with Gaspard Dehaene. It was highly acclaimed, for example in the “Musik und Theater”, “Gramophone” and “Pizzicato” journals.

Teaching is also a very significant aspect of Adrien Boisseau’s career. He holds masterclasses at the Conservatoire de Paris, the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth, the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles, the Shepherd School of Music in Houston und the Stavanger Festival.

After almost three years’ membership of the Quatuor Ebène, Adrien Boisseau decided to focus on his own professional development. His performances in the 2017/2018 season include recitals in France with Gaspard Dehaene, in the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris, as a member of a string trio together with Marc Bouchkov (violin) and Kian Soltani (cello) in Neuss, a recording of Johannes Brahms’ quintet and sextet with the Quatuor Strada and Yan Levionnois, a performance in Ittlingen with the Van Kuijk Quartet, concerts as a member of a trio with Pierre Génisson (clarinet) and Natacha Kudritskaya (piano), as well as participating in several chamber music festivals, for example in Lockenhaus, Deauville, La Folle Journée in Nantes and Les Musicales Cambrai.
