Julien Libeer. Ever since receiving the prestigious Juventus Award – previously awarded to e.g. Piotr Anderszewski and Emmanuel Pahud – at the age of 20, Julien Libeer has been described by national and international press as one of the most remarkable musicians of the younger generation. Since then, he has been the guest of the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, London’s King’s Place Concert Hall, the Théâtre de la Ville (Paris), and the Menton and Radio France Montpellier festival (France). Since 2012, he is coached by Maria João Pires, with whom he shares the stage on regular occasions. Next seasons will mark his debut in some major international halls (see “News” for regular updates). An ardent chamber musician, Julien Libeer studied with the Artemis and Alban Berg String Quartets, and performs with artists such as Augustin Dumay, Julian Steckel, Alissa Margulis, Alena Baeva… Over the season 2014-2015, he will perform the full set of Beethoven’s violin sonatas with Lorenzo Gatto in Flagey, Brussels. After finishing his studies with distinguished professors Daniel Blumenthal (Brussels) and Jean Fassina (Paris), Julien Libeer becomes ‘artist in residence’ at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel. He works for two years under supervision of Abdel-Rahman El Bacha, before joining the class of Maria João Pires. He has benefitted from regular advice of Dmitri Bashkirov.
