Luka Ispir, violin

Artist in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel under the tutelage of Augustin
Dumay, Luka Ispir discovered the art of the violin in Rouen at a very young age
with an uncommon appetite. At the age of 14, he left his native town to go to Paris where he could benefit from the advice of the most eminent teachers.

He thus became very interested in chamber music, and in 2016 participated in the formation of the Philia Trio with which he performs in many festivals in France and abroad (Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise, Musique de chambre à Giverny, Festival Opus Amadeus, Forum Musical de Normandie…)

Noted for the originality of his musical choices, Luka Ispir has performed as a soloist with the Orchestra of Normandy, the Appassionato Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Academy of La Scala Orchestra in Milan.

In chamber music, he has been invited to the European Chamber Music Academy during the festival, the Giverny Chamber Music Festival, the Jaroussky Academy, the Evian Musical Encounters, the Kronberg Academy and the Salle Cortot Chamber Music Centre in Paris.

Recognized by his peers for his virtuosity and remarkable sensitivity, he won in 2015
and 2017 the national and international Vatelot-Rampal and Jeune Talent Normand competitions as well as the 2nd prize at the Vittorio Veneto International Competition in Italy in 2021.

After having brilliantly obtained his prize at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris with soloist Olivier Charlier, Luka Ispir completed his musical studies at the very prestigious Hanns Eisler School in Berlin in the class of Stephan Picard.
