Jérôme Huille

Born in the town of Pithiviers (in the Loiret region of France) in 1981, Jérôme Huille began his cello studies with Augusin Lefebvre at the Orléans Conservatory, where in 1996 he was awarded his Premier Prix by a unanimous jury.

After earning his literary baccalaureat degree in 1999, he was accepted into the cello class of Roland Pidoux at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et Danse de Paris. During this period of study, he was awarded the 3rd Prize in the Fourth International Jean Françaix competition (2001). In 2003, he received the "Diplôme de Formation Supérieure" with honors in cello, followed by the the same diploma in chamber music after two additional years of study with Alain Meunier.

He has participated in masterclasses given by Phillipe Muller, Arto Noras, and Anner Bijlsma and been a regular performer in such ensembles as the Orchestre de Paris, the Opera de Paris, and the company "Les Brigands".

Additionally, his affinity for early music led him to study with David Simpson at the Conservatoire National de Région de Paris (Departement de Musique Ancienne), where he was awarded a diploma with honors in baroque cello in 2006. The subject of his thesis was the lirone, an instrument which he plays as well. At the end of this same year, he returned to the Conservatoire Nationale Supérieur to pursue postgraduate studies with Christophe Coin.

Jérôme's other recent projects include performances with musicians as François Fernendez, Philippe Pierlot, Christophe Coin, Kenneth Weiss and with baroque groups such as "Les Arts Florissants", Ricercar consort, and the Cercle de l'Harmonie. In 2007, he collaborated in a choreographic project by Béatrice Massin, involving the Bach solo cello suites and taking place at the Musee du Louvre, which explored the relationships of seventeenth century music, art, and dance.

Finally, as part of the 'Dialogues' duo with keyboardist Alissa Duryee, he recently won the 'Concours Musique au Centre', which, with the support of the Aprionis group, enabled the duo to complete a recording project based on the French repertoire for cello and keyboard.
