Claire Dassesse

Claire (°1989) studied from 2004 to 2007 with Augustin Dumay and Tatiana Samouil at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel. Subsequently, she acquired her bachelor’s degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium of Brussels in the class of Igor Oistrakh. Between 2009 and 2015, under the guidance of Mihaela Martin at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève and at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Köln, Claire obtained two master’s degrees and a soloist’s diploma.

Her diligence paid off because Claire could add, among other things, the first prizes of the Breughel-, Didier Noé-, Deru- and the famous Henri Vieuxtemps violin competitions to her impressive record of achievements, in addition to winning the Nancy Philippart Scholarship.

She performed as a soloist with the Slovakia Zilina Orchestra and the Orchestre des Pays de Savoie, played in venues such as Flagey and the Palais Royal in Brussels and performed live recordings for the Swiss radio, RTBF and France Musique.

Furthermore, since 2013 she has permanently joined the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.
