Philippe Graffin

Philippe Graffin Biography (Wikipedia)

Philippe Graffin (born 1964) is a French violinist and recording artist. He was born in Romilly-sur-Seine, France.

The French Violinist Philippe Graffin was a student of the late Joseph Gingold and Philippe Hirschhorn and has established a particular reputation for his interpretations of his native repertoire as well for his interest in rare and contemporary works. He rediscovered original settings of classics such as Chausson's Poème and Ravel's Tzigane and has also championed the forgotten violin concertos of G. Fauré and the concerto by English composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.

Philippe has shared the stage with some of the greatest musicians of our time: Yehudi Menuhin, M. Rostropovich, Martha Argerich, and Sergiu Comissiona. He regularly partners with cellists Gary Hoffman and Truls Mork; pianists Pascal Devoyon, Steven Kovacevich, Claire Désert and the Chilingirian Quartet and is founder and artistic director of the "Consonances" chamber music festival of St Nazaire, France. He has appeared in the BBC Proms Chamber Music series and has been Artistic Director of several chamber music projects at London's Wigmore hall. As concerto soloist, he has performed with many of the UK's major orchestras throughout Europe.
