Contemporary Violin Techniques with Alexandra Greffin-Klein
In cooperation with the composition department.
Parisian violinist Alexandra Griffin-Klein devotes an important part of her career to promoting contemporary music, working closely with composers such as Pascal Dusapin, Philippe Hurel, Gérard Pesson, Michaël Jarrell, Allain Gaussin, Sofia Goubaïdoulina and Helmut Lachenmann. As a frequent violinist with Ensemble Intercontemporain and a soloist of the Ensemble Cairn, she appeared at the Darmstadt Festival in 2010, performing a cycle of Gérard Pesson premieres at the 104 in Paris and received in 2012 ‘5 Diapasons’ for her recording of Raphaël Cendo’s string quartet, In vivo. Philippe Hurel dedicated his new solo violin piece Trait, to her, which she premiered in Paris in September 2014. Alex Greffin Klein plays a Sebastian Klotz violin dating from 1756.
