Julie Triquet

Violin

Biography

Julie Triquet began her violin studies at the tender age of three under Claude Létourneau. She went on to study at the Conservatoire de musique de Québec and has since received three annual professional development grants from the Canada Council for the Arts to study under David Cerone and Aaron Rosand at the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. While in Philadelphia, Julie Triquet received the coveted Sylva-Gelber Music Foundation Award presented by the Canada Council for the Arts. In 1982, Julie won first prize at the OSM Standard Life Competition. This award paved the way for subsequent appearances with the best orchestras in Quebec, with which Julie distinguished herself as a soloist. Further recognition of her exceptional talent and passion for chamber music came in 1988, when Julie was named first violin with the Arthur-Leblanc Quartet, then in residence at the Université de Moncton, New Brunswick.

From 1993 to 1998, Julie served as co-solo violin with Les Violons du Roy of Québec City. In September 2012, she was appointed solo violin with the Orchestre de chambre I Musici de Montréal. Julie Triquet plays a Giuseppe Odoardi 1786 violin generously loaded by Mr. David B. Sela.

Maxim Rysanov

Conductor

Biography

Grammy nominated Ukrainian-British violist and conductor Maxim Rysanov has established himself as one of the worldʼs most vibrant and charismatic musicians. As a violist, he is principally known as a frequent guest of the crème of the international music scene, such as BBC Last Night of the Proms and the festivals of Edinburgh, Salzburg and Verbier. Parallel to playing viola, Maxim enjoys a thriving career as a conductor, often combining conducting and directing as a soloist within one concert.

Maxim studied conducting with Alan Hazeldine at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and has taken part in several masterclasses with Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Jorma Panula and Oleg Caetani. He studied viola with Maria Sitkovskaya in Moscow and John Glickman also at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama London.

His enthusiasm for new music generates many exciting collaborations which extend the viola repertoire. This includes world premieres by Dobrinka Tabakova, Pēteris Vasks, Richard Dubugnon and Valentin Bibik. Other composers with whom Maxim has developed a close working relationship include Benjamin Yusupov, Leonid Desyatnikov, Giya Kancheli, Artem Vassiliev and Elena Langer and most recently Gabriel Prokofiev.

Maxim is a recipient of various awards, including the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award and the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Award. He is also a prize-winner at the Geneva, Lionel Tertis and Valentino Bucchi competitions.
