Hailed by The Strad for his “great musical sensitivity, flawless technique and warm sound”, French violinist Amaury Coeytaux has conquered a unique niche as one of the finest and most versatile artists of his generation.
A student of Micheline Lefebvre, Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Pinchas Zukerman, he gave his first public performance at the age of 9 and made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2004, playing the Brahms Violin Concerto under the direction of David Gilbert. Since then, he has performed extensively around the world as a soloist and chamber musician. Previous highlights include concert appearances with the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra, the Malaga Philharmonic, the Orchestre de Picardie, the Orchestre de chambre de Genève and the Spanish Radio and Television Orchestra. Frequently invited by major international festivals (La Roque d’Anthéron, Saint-Denis, Menton, Lugano, Salzburg, Rheingau, Bucarest, Enescu, Amsterdam), he has collaborated with artists such as Nicholas Angelich, Frank Braley, Yefim Bronfman, Gérard Caussé, Joseph Kalischtein, Joseph Silverstein, Michael Tree and Pinchas Zukerman.
A prolific recording artist, the previous season was marked by the release of the complete Brahms violin sonatas and the complete Schubert string quartets, each earning unanimous acclaim from Diapason, Classica and Télérama as well as from the international press.
His passion for the orchestral repertoire has led him to work with conductors such as Myung-Whun Chung, Gustavo Dudamel, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Tugan Sokhiev. He regularly is performing as conductor and soloist, collaborating in this role with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Strasbourg, the Orchestre National Capitole Toulouse, the Spanish Radio Orchestra, the Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra, the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra and the National Orchestra of Metz.
Amaury Coeytaux plays a Stradivarius violin, built 1715.
