Marie Cantagrill (Violin)

Born: France

The french violinist, Marie Cantagrill, was 5 years old when she began learning the violin with Helene Grangaud. After studying in France, she entered Philippe Koch's class at the Royal Superior Conversatory of Liege in Belgium where she obtained the Advanced Diploma for Violin with High Distinction in June 2000. She also worked with Zoria Chickmoursaeva, a teacher at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, and followed Igor Oistrakh’s advanced class for two years at the Royal Superior Conservatory of Bruxelles in Belgium. She has won several National and International violin competitions; the Pierre Lantier International Competition in Paris, the Claude Langevin Special Prize, the Vieuxtemps Competition in Belgium...

Marie Cantagrill pursues since then her Concert Solo career in France and elsewhere. After her two first violin and piano albums - which included virtuoso and romantic masterpieces ("Marie Cantagrill - Romantic and virtuoso" and "Récital Slave" as well as a "Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto and Rimsky-Korsakov Fantasy on Russian Themes Album" - recorded at the Hungarian Radio Studios in Budapest, with the Budapest Concert Orchestra - conductor Tàmàs Gal , Marie Cantagrill is releasing in November 2009 a New Album : "Bach - Partitas n°2 & 3 for solo violin". A "single" - "Bach - Sarabanda in d-minor from the Partita n°2" (1 track CD) has also been released as a preview of the official releasing of the album. On this new album, Marie Cantagrill was playing a Riccardo Antoniazzi violin (beginning 20th century), on loan from a private sponsor.

Marie Cantagrill is now, presently playing a Calcanius Bernardus violin from 1748.
