Aude Walker-Viry

Violoncello

After studying cello at the music school in Bourges, Aude Walker-Viry moved to the Paris area for further study with Marie-Paule Milone at the Rueil-Malmaison Conservatory. In 2009, she got here the first prize for chamber music and a unanimous Cello Excellence Award. The same year, she joined the class of Carole Bajac, as a singer, at the conservatory of Clichy (Paris area). 

 

It was during a seminar conducted by Gérard Lesne and Il seminario musicale in November 2010 that Aude took her first steps in the world of historically informed performacne. Subsequently, she was introduced to the baroque cello by Claire Giardelli, and she joined her class at Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Lyon (CNSMD) in June 2011. After graduating and receiving her DNSPM (Bachelors Degree), she took advantage of her first year of Master to join the ERASMUS programme, through which she was enriched by new cultural and musical experiences in Leipzig (Germany). There she studied with cellists Jan Freiheit and Jaap ter Linden. In June 2016, she graduated with a Masters Degree in baroque cello master, with honours. 

 

Fascinated by the interpretation of early music on period instruments in general, Aude co-founded the ensemble Matali with some friends of CNSMD Lyon, a consort of violins interpreting the music of the Renaissance. 

 

Cello soloist in the baroque ensemble Le Concert de l'Hostel Dieu since 2016, she also performs in chamber and orchestra with ensembles such as the Young Atlantic Orchestra (Ph. Herreweghe), the French Baroque Youth Orchestra (Ch. Coin), Les Surprises, the ArcheTypes, the Colla Parte Ensemble (Nîmes) and "Viel Lärm Um Nichts" ensemble from Weimar (Germany).
