Friend Flammer

Invited to the 2017 Books & Music Festival

A student of Roland Charmy at the Paris Conservatory, Ami Flammer obtained a First Prize in Violin in 1969. After winning a First Medal at the Maria Canals International Competition in Barcelona in 1971, he went to work at the Juilliard School in New York, then in Switzerland and England.
In the 1970s, he was Solo Violin of the Chamber Orchestra of Versailles, and performed chamber music in various events (Rencontres d'Arc et Senans, Cluny, Académie des Arcs, Floréal d'Épinal, etc.).
In 1988, he published Le violon, with Editions Lattès-Salabert.
Also passionate about conducting, he has led the Student Orchestra of the CNSM of Paris in Schoenberg, Bartok, Britten, Mozart and Beethoven. He is also increasingly invited to conduct abroad: in Turkey, Kazakhstan, Montenegro.
He has also composed various film scores (for Marguerite Duras, Eric Rohmer) and stage music (Kafka with Michael Lonsdale, Boulgakov at the Avignon Festival 93).
He has also created several shows: L'Orient de l'Occident (with Michael Lonsdale) in November 2004 at the MC93; in 2008, a show about Marguerite Duras at the Théâtre de la Colline. In 2011, he directed for the first time an adaptation of Lobo Antunes with François Marthouret. In 2012, he created the show Gould-Menuhin, co-directed by Christiane Cohendy, based on an original idea and with Charles Berling in Toulon: he plays Yehudi Menuhin both as an actor and as a violinist. He is currently preparing a show with François Marthouret on Beethoven's Testament of Heiligenstadt, a text in which Beethoven realizes that he has become permanently deaf, and says goodbye to the world. He has just recorded Beethoven's Concerto under the direction of Jean-Claude Pennetier, to be released in spring 2016.
Professor of Violin and Chamber Music at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, Ami Flammer also teaches at the Conservatoire de Gennevilliers.
