About Prof. Marianne Piketty
Density, ardor, virtuosity, interiority and generosity
Here are the glowing terms with which the press welcomes Marianne Piketty. From Bach to Piazzolla, from the Baroque reduction to contemporary creation, the violinist Marianne Piketty develops a career as dynamic as versatile: solo appearances, recitals as well as in her numerous chamber music projects .
A graduate of the CNSM in Paris and the Juilliard School of New York, she is one of the heirs of the classical violin tradition thanks to her training with great masters such as Itzhak Perlman and Yehudi Menuhin.
In 2013, Marianne Piketty gathered around her Le Concert , a variable geometry ensemble of international soloists and chamber musicians from horizons as diverse as specialized, who use all their resources to explore music from all angles, over time and space but also its relationships with literature, theater and dance.
Artist as charismatic as essential, Marianne Piketty is distinguished in particular by an extraordinary desire to undertake, an inexhaustible taste for new meetings and performance, always with in the heart the will to share and the spirit of the collective. Rigor, exacting standards and surpassing oneself are the watchwords of a violinist who practices her instrument at a run, at the rhythm of an athlete.
