Amanda Favier

Amanda Favier belongs to the new generation of French soloists.

A child prodigy, she performed her first concerto as a soloist at age nine. By eleven, she had performed at the Salle Gaveau; and at thirteen she entered the Paris Conservatoire where she studied under Gérard Poulet and graduated with a first violin prize. After completing an additional year of advanced training, she studied in Cologne and then in London with Igor Ozim and Sir Ifrah Neaman.

This cultural blending made her a well-rounded musician who went on to take first prize in more than a dozen international competitions, including the international Bach Competition in Leipzig, of which she was the youngest winner ever. Next, her career brought her to a number of prestigious venues: she has performed with top orchestras and sought-after partners at the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the State Kremlin Palace of Moscow, Victoria Hall of Geneva, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Théâtre du Châtelet, Cité de la Musique and the Salle Gaveau in Paris.

Distinguished in France by the Prix Forthuny de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts, the Prix Berthier des Palmes Académiques, the Fondation Banque Populaire and the ADAMI, Amanda Favier is a regular guest on European radio and television.

This season, after her debut as soloist with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, the Belgian National Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Luxembourg, she can be heard performing with the Orchestre National de Lorraine, Nuove Musiche and the Orchestre philharmonique royal de Liège.
