Hailed as a “marvelous violinist” (France Musique) with “sensitive tone” (Pizzicato Magazine) and “tremendous ease, suppleness and beauty of sound” (Nice-Matin), French violinist Ambroise Aubrun enjoys a career as a soloist, chamber and orchestral musician, and pedagogue. He has performed extensively in Europe and North America in halls such as Salzburg Haus Für Mozart, Yerevan Khachaturian Grand Hall, Los Angeles Broad Stage, Zipper Hall, Chicago Bradley Hall and Paris Hotel des Invalides, and has shared the stage with Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Scott St. John, Martin Chalifour, Fred Sherry, Clive Greensmith, Carrie Dennis, Richard O’Neill, Rohan de Saram, the Borroméo and Ebène string quartets among others.
His recordings for the Editions Hortus label have received rave reviews and awards from the international press (4 stars Classica Magazine, 5 stars Pizzicato Journal, “coup de coeur” France Musique, 4 stars Diapason, and a nomination for the prestigious 2021 International Classical Music Awards).
An advocate for contemporary music, Aubrun has premiered over 20 works and recently recorded an album dedicated to the music of composer Eric Tanguy, to be released in 2021.
Dr. Aubrun’s performances and albums have been broadcasted on CBS, Klara Radio (Belgium), WFMT Chicago, France Musique, KPFK, KNCJ, and K-USC Los Angeles.
Currently Assistant Professor of Violin at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Aubrun previously taught Violin and Chamber Music at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and UC Santa Barbara. He has also served on the faculty of the Montecito International Academy, The Chamber Music Unbound Festival and Academy, the Foosa Academy, the Impulse New Music Festival, the Socal Chamber Music Workshop and the Arconet Academy. He is regularly invited to give masterclasses in conservatories and universities across the country.
Aubrun graduated at age 19 from the Paris National Superior Conservatory where he studied with Roland Daugareil and Serge Pataud. He then studied at UCLA (D.M.A.) with Guillaume Sutre and at the Colburn Conservatory of Music (Artist Diploma) with Martin Beaver.
He plays a Matteo Goffriller violin, on a generous loan by the Langart Foundation.
