Biography

Born into a passionately musical family, Deborah Nemtanu chose to play the violin at the age of four, a decision that has turned out to be a huge success. After being unanimously awarded a prize at the Conservatoire national Supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris in 2001, she received the fourth prize in the international Jacques-Thibaud Concours, after which she was selected to take part in the prestigious Perlman Program in the United States. In 2008, she won second prize in the international Benjamin Britten Competition in London. Since 2005, she is principal violinist of the Orchestre de chambre de Paris. Curious and passionate, Deborah Nemtanu always aims high: she has conducted the orchestra herself, and strives to reconcile the soloist and ensemble musician in herself, resulting in a veritable chamber-musical approach to solo concertos. She plays a Domenico Montagnana violin of 1740, generously provided by Monceau Investissements Mobiliers, a branch of the Monceau Assurances Group.
