Biography

Taken under the wing of Pierre Barbizet from an early age, Laurent Korcia studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris with Michèle Auclair, herself a pupil of Jacques Thibaud and George Enesco. After being awarded a Premier Prix by the Conservatoire, he continued his studies with Felix Andrievsky at the Royal College of Music in London, where he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth Prize ‘for the most outstanding contribution to the College’. At the age of eighteen, he won the Paganini Competition in Genoa, which earned him the honour of performing on Paganini’s Guarnerius, he also won a Grand Prix at the Concours Jacques Thibaud, a first prize at the International Zino Francescatti Competition and was laureate of the Young Concert Artists Trust in London.

He is considered one of the most distinctive violinists of his generation. In 2002, he won the prestigious Victoire de la Musique award as ‘Instrumental Soloist of the Year’ and was appointed Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres. He has also received the George Enesco Prize of the SACEM and the Grand Prix of the Académie Charles Cros.

He has also recorded the music for the film The Diary of Anne Frank and participated in the recent documentary by Bruno Monsaingeon The Art of the Violin along with Itzhak Perlman, Ivry Gitlis, Ida Haendel and Hilary Hahn.

    Le pire concert de ma vie. Je n'avais jamais entendu un artiste se planter sur scène de cette façon. A Playel ça la fout mal !! The worst concert of my life. I never heard an artist play that bad on stage. In Salle Playel above all !!
