Bruno Philippe

Bruno Philippe quickly rose to stardom on France's cello scene with top prizes, including one at the prestigious Les Victoires de La Musique Classique in 2018. He has a growing catalog of recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label. Philippe was born in Perpignan, France, in 1993, and his first serious studies of the cello took place there with teacher Marie-Madeleine Mille and in the master class of Yvon Chiffoleau. In 2008, he enrolled at the Paris Regional Conservatory, studying with Raphael Pidoux, and the following year, he earned unanimous acceptance into the Paris National Conservatory of Music and Dance, studying with Jerome Pernoo and taking chamber music classes with Claire Desert. He also took a variety of master classes, including one with Steven Isserlis, and in 2014 went on for postgraduate studies at the Kronberg Academy outside Frankfurt with Frans Helmerson. By that time, he was already racking up prizes: a third prize at the André Navarra International Competition in 2011 and a third prize and audience prize at the International Competition of the ARD in Munich in 2014. He went on to earn a special prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition and, in 2017, became a laureate of the Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels. Philippe has performed with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, and the Monte Carlo Philharmonic, as well as at several top European festivals, including the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival (under Christoph Eschenbach). Philippe's recital appearances have taken him to such venues as the Louvre and the Salle Cortot in Paris, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, and the Konzerthaus in Berlin. While still a teen, he recorded an Offenbach duo with Pidoux. In 2015, he recorded an album of Brahms sonatas for the Evidence label. Signed to Harmonia Mundi, he released an album of Beethoven and Schubert sonatas in 2017. His performance of music by Pascal Zavaro appeared on Claves the following year, but he returned to Harmonia Mundi for an album of cello sonatas by Rachmaninov and Myaskovsky in 2019 and one of Prokofiev's cello sonata the following year. During the 2021-2022 season, Philippe toured the U.S. with Ensemble Jupiter and served as a resident artist with the Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne. In 2022, Philippe released a complete performance of Bach's sonatas for unaccompanied cello on Harmonia Mundi.
