Heralded by the legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman as “a strong player with a great deal of temperament as well as sensitivity”, Brieuc shares his love for music in performing all around the world in some of todays’s most prestigious concerts halls, from the Shanghai Grand Theater to the Alice Tully hall in New-York or the Seine Musicale in Paris, Brieuc considers music as a global profession. Equally happy playing for millions of viewers through The Ultimate Luxury Weekend television show in China or just for a few hundred children in public schools, communicating through music is for him a mission. Thinking outside the box, and stepping out into different arts and thinking forms is for Brieuc necessary to enrich his perspectives on music. His curiosity led him to perform for and share the stage with personalities such as Shimon Peres, President of Israel or Emmanuel Macron, President of France in concerts attended by thousands of audience members.
Brieuc Vourch was born in 1995 in Paris and started playing the violin at the age of 3. At the age of thirteen he auditioned for Maestro Louis Langrée with the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto and moved to America to study with Itzhak Perlman at The Juilliard School of Music and with Aaron Rosand. He came back to Europe in 2014 to study with Boris Kuschnir in Vienna. At the same time, he also studied with Rainer Küchl, former concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic. During his formation, Brieuc received guidance of Frank-Peter Zimmermann, Thomas Brandis, Lukas Hagen, Glenn Dicterow, Volkhard Steude and David Kim. His special care to make his violin sound as close as possible to the human voice leads him to join acclaimed singer Philippe Jaroussky’s academy in Paris during the 2017/2018 season where he benefited of Philippe Jaroussky’s wisdom and coaching. The latter will say : “Brieuc Vourch has a great ability to convey his feelings and thoughts to the audience and I have been very impressed by the precise technical quality and musical coherence of his playing”. Brieuc also worked and shared the stage with singer Laurent Naouri in a production of the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer), a song cycle by Gustav Mahler, performed in their arranged version by Arnold Schoenberg at the Paris Chamber Music Center.
