PROFILE

1971年ストラスブールに生まれ、4歳よりヴァイオリンをはじめる。イザイの弟子であったオスカル・ジェマン氏に教えを受け、わずか10歳にしてオーケストラと協演。その後は、ハイフェッツに教えを受けたソリスト、ピエール・アモイヤル氏に師事するべく、パリ音楽院とローザンヌ音楽院に進む。ローザンヌ音学院では最優秀ソリストに選ばれ、コンサート・ディプロマを取得した。同時期に、ルッジェーロ・リッチ氏やメンターと仰ぐジーノ・フランチェスカッティからも薫陶を受けた。
これまでにソロ・ヴァイオリニストとして、ストラスブール響、カンヌ響、モンペリエ響、ローザンヌ室内管弦楽団、カールスルーエ・シンフォニエッタ等の欧州の著名オーケストラや、ルドルフ・バウムガルトナーやユーディ・メニューインなどの著名指揮者と協演を果たした。また、1698年製のストラディヴァリウスや1752年製のG.B.ガダニーニを自身で所有し、演奏してきた。
現在は、演奏の一線からは退いたものの、名器・名弓の熱心なコレクターとして、世界的に有名である。楽器への情熱と知識をさらに追求するべく、友人のノルウエー人チェリスト、オイステン・ビルケラン氏と名器・名弓のコンサルティング会社を設立した。
