Frederic Moreau

Violinist
Captivating audiences with his interpretations, charisma and incredible virtuosity, Frédéric Moreau has been invited to numerous festivals and prestigious concert halls throughout the world and has rapidly become one of the most prolific French artists of his generation, with more than a hundred solo concerts each year.

He regularly tours throughout Europe, the United States and Asia (China, South Korea, Japan) and has performed as a soloist with numerous orchestras, including the Munich Symphony Orchestra, the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Kiev.

A prizewinner in international competitions, Frédéric Moreau began his career as a soloist at the age of eighteen after receiving unanimous first prizes in violin and chamber music and graduating from the “3ème cycle”, the most selective “soloist” programme of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (Master’s and Doctorate). He studied violin with masters such as Jean Fournier, Michèle Auclair, Régis Pasquier, Tibor Varga, Yehudi Menuhin,…

An eclectic artist, he also studied solfeggio, harmony, counterpoint, analysis and music history at the CNSM in Paris; piano, organ, orchestration and conducting at other conservatories; and musicology at the Sorbonne.

Frédéric Moreau embodies the violin repertoire from Baroque to contemporary music and is a fervent defender of the music of the most charismatic virtuoso of all time: Niccolò Paganini, to whom he has dedicated a CD entitled “Il Cannone” in homage to the famous violin of the Italian Master.

Musical director and soloist of the famous chamber orchestra “Les Violons de France”, for which he has adapted a repertoire in which virtuosity plays an important role, Frédéric Moreau also devotes himself to chamber music, notably as 1st violin of the “Gaïa Quartet” (Seoul).

A recognised pedagogue, he regularly passes on his love of music in master classes throughout the world and since 2021 has been teaching at the prestigious Yonsei University in Seoul.

Frédéric Moreau plays a Giovanni Battista Guadagnini violin from 1749, which is both a privilege and a pleasure.
