Clémence de Forceville

Violinist Clémence de Forceville has a polyvalent career as a chamber musician, soloist and orchestral musician. She has performed throughout the world and has collaborated as a soloist with the Baden-Baden Philharmonic Orchestra, the Catalonia Chamber Orchestra, the Südwestfalen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre de la Nouvelle Europe and the Paris Chamber Orchestra.

A versatile musician, she is passionately involved in the chamber music repertoire, notably alongside the Hieronymus String Quartet, of which she was first violin for three years, and then within the Sōra Trio, of which she is a member until 2021. From this collaboration, an album of Beethoven’s six great trios was released by Naïve in November 2020, which has already been distinguished by some prestigious awards: Choc Classica of the year and elected “Album of the year” by The Times.

Clémence studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris in the class of Olivier Charlier and then in Berlin with Antje Weithaas and Mihaela Martin. Invited to play and study in the most renowned academies such as the Ravinia Steans Music Institute (USA), the Seiji Ozawa Academy or the Open Chambre Music Prussia Cove (UK), she benefits from a rich and complete teaching.

In 2021, she was appointed first concertmaster of the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris and assistant to Philippe Graffin’s violin class at the Conservatoire Supérieur National de Musique et de Danse de Paris.
