BIOGRAPHY

Biography

Adrien La Marca031.jpg

Hailed by The Financial Times as « a truly pure talent » and described by Le Monde as « a new viola hero »,  Adrien La Marca’s playing is characterised by a depth of expression, technical mastery and a sound with rich, deep, burnished quality. Gifted with a charismatic stage presence and ability to create an immediate emotional connection with his audience, Adrien La Marca is considered as one of today's most compelling musicians. 

 

As a soloist, La Marca has performed with renowned Orchestras such as Orchestre National de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France, Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra (MDR), Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Hong-Kong Sinfonietta, Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège (artist in residence for 2018-19 season), Insula Orchestra, Les Siècles, Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse, Orchestre de Metz and more. 

 

Named "New Soloist of the year 2014" by French Victoires de la Musique, La Marca has since then performed in prestigious venues such as Paris Philharmonie, London Barbican Center and Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus, Vienna Musikverein, Auditorium du Louvre, Schloss Elmau, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Théâtre de la Ville de Paris, Salle Gaveau, Mecklenburg Vorpommern, and Schubertiades Hohenems.

 

His first album, « English Delight », released in 2016 for the Label La Dolce Volta, has been highly praised by the press (The Strad, Gramophone, Strings Magazine, Le Monde, Le Figaro, Diapason, Classica, etc. ) and awarded Diapason d'OR, FFFF Telerama, Coup de Coeur FNAC, France Musique, Radio Classique and Gramophone’s choice. His latest recording project include Walton Viola Concerto with Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, a World Premiere of Gwenaël Mario Grisi’s Viola Concerto written for him and Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet. It is the first time this has been recorded for solo viola and orchestra.

 

Born in Aix-en-Provence, France in 1989 to a family of musicians, Adrien La Marca began playing piano and viola at the age of 4. He entered Paris Conservatoire at 16 and studied with Jean Sulem. He completed his studies in Leipzig with Tatjana Masurenko and further in Berlin with Tabea Zimmermann. During his studies, Adrien was regularly invited to take part in different Musical Academies and had the opportunity to work with inspiring musicians including Seiji Ozawa, Valery Gergiev, Gidon Kremer, Andras Schiff and Menahem Pressler. In 2016, La Marca was the first classical musician to receive the prestigious “Fondation Lagardère” Grant. He is a winner of the “Fondation Banque Populaire” and supported by “L’Or du Rhin” and the "Safran" Foundation. La Marca has additionally won numerous prizes in international competitions including William Primrose Competition, Lionel Tertis Competition and Johannes Brahms Competition.

 

La Marca plays an outstanding viola by Nicola Bergonzi made in Cremona in 1780, on generous loan from the Boubo-Music Foundation.
