Camille Théveneau comes from a family of musicians who urged her to begin studying the violin at the age of 6.  In 2013, the joined CNSM Lyon to study with Marianne Piketty.  During her studies under the Erasmus Program in Germany, Camille trained under the violinist Marina Chiche.  This relationship was critical to the approach to her repertoire.
Returning to France, she joined CNSM in Paris to earn a master’s degree, where she continued her career studying with Alexis Galpérine.  She graduated in June 2018.
In parallel studies, Camille perfected her technique with eminent talents such as Ivry Gitlis, Michael Martin, Baiba Skribes, and Miriam Fried, to refine her musical research.
Camille has flourished in working with various chamber music ensembles which have given her the opportunity to share the stage with renowned musicians such as Renaud Capuçon, Didier Lockwood, Michel Lethiec, Christian Altenburger, Hartmut Rohde and Michel Dalberto.
Camille is a laureate of the International Awards CIM of Val d’Isère, Leopold Bellan, Flame, Arthur Grumiaux and Marie Cantagrill, among others.
Miss Théveneau sees music an an expression of wonder, and she surrounds herself with artists from diverse backgrounds in order to enrich herself with multiple experiences.  She contributes notably to the show “Kafka in the Cities” on the music of Phillippe Hersant  created in March 2018 at the Comédie de Caen.  She also collaborates regularly with young actors of the CNSAD, underwritten by the Music and Wine Foundation of Clos Vougeot, benefitting from an instrumental loan.
Camille was part of the “Mozart” promotion within the Jaroussky Academy for the year 2017-2018, with the advice of Geneviève Laurenceau.
As soon as she returns to Paris, she will have the opportunity to perform at the Bourdelle Museum, the Montmartre Museum, the Saint Marcel Temple and the Bernarnos Auditorium.
Camille will make her debut in Asia in duet with piano, touring China, Taiwan and Macau.

 

Florent Ling was born in Paris in 1994.  He discovered the piano while he was very young when he began studying with Professor Bin Wang.
At the age of 18, he decided to pursue a musical career, and joined the CRR of Paris, as well as the Ecole Normale de Musique Cortot where he had the chance to study with pianists Romain Dercharmes, Erik Berchot, and Bruno Rigutto.
During these years, he participated in many master classes, especially with Bruno Rigutto, but also with Xu Zhong and Giovanni Bellucci.  He also played in several festivals, including the Lisztomania and the Musicales de Préfailles Festivals.
He is currently studying at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, under Hortense Cartier-Bresson and Fernando Rossano. He won his piploma with unanimous honors.
 
During the summer of 2017, Florent performed in Asia, presenting concerts in Taiwan, and performing and giving master classes at the Conservatorio de Macau.
In December of 2017, he won the First Prize at the Claude Bonneton International Piano Competition, as well as the Public Prize, the Best Modern Art Award, and the BestSupport Award.

Her concerts this season explore the world of Preludes, featuring works by composers such as Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Kapustin, Franck, Debussy and Shostakovich, and her current blogpost series is on the subject of  The Ubiquitous Prelude. Chamber music this year includes a piano trio by Clara Schumann in a presentation with LSO animateur Rachel Leach, as well as a performance of excerpts from Robert Schumann’s rarely heard  Six Etudes en forme de canon, transcribed for two pianos by Debussy.

Christine’s solo concert programmes last season in the UK and in France had a Russian flavour, and featured works by Scriabin, Tchaikowsky, Rachmaninoff, and Moussorgsky.
