Florent Brémond

Throughout his international orchestral career, French Violist Florent Bremond had the chance to play with many of today’s greatest conductors. During his years in the Orchestre de Paris, he worked regularly with conductors such as Lorin Maazel, Pierre Boulez, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Valery Gergiev, Frans Bruggen, Sir Roger Norrington, George Prêtre et.al.

As a member of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, he performed during ten years under Claudio Abbado and Pierre Boulez, later Riccardo Chailly.

Both as dedicated chamber musician and orchestra player, he found an artistic home of many years as member of the internationally acclaimed Mahler Chamber Orchestra, where collaborations included projects with orchestra founder Claudio Abbado as well as with a long row of outstanding conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Daniel Harding, Klaus Mäkelä and Daniele Gatti. His years at the Mahler Chamber Orchestra brought a much- loved focus on soloist-led projects in collaboration with a.o. Leif Ove Andsnes (The Beethoven Journey), Mitsuko Uchida (Mozart Cycle), Daniil Trifonov or violinists such as Isabelle Faust and Pekka Kuusisto.

Within the extensive touring activity of both Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Orchestre de Paris, Florent Bremond has performed on all international stages, including Carnegie Hall New York, Musikverein Wien, Berliner Philharmonie, Suntory Hall Tokyo and many others.

In October 2019, Florent Bremond has been appointed Solo Viola of La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra.

Florent Bremond began his career with a strong focus on chamber music: He regularly collaborated in concert with musicians of his generation, a.o. Nicolas Angelich, Renaud Capucon, Philippe Mueller or Sara Nemtanu, but also with Michel Dalberto and singers such as Nora Gubisch and Karine Deshayes. His active career led to his appointment as professor for chamber music at the Conservatoire National de Marseille (2000 – 2005).

He kept a special passion for chamber playing also throughout his orchestral activities: as part of

the “Soloists of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra” with concerts e.g. at Philharmonie Essen, Rencontres Musicales d’Evian (2016), Berliner Philharmonie (Lunchkonzert Series) et.al.), and in regular collaboration with the soloists of La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra.
