Guillaume Bellom

Guillaume Bellom has one of the most atypical backgrounds of his generation, studying the violin alongside the piano, from the Besançon Conservatory to the Paris Conservatory, in contact with outstanding musical personalities such as Nicholas Angelich and Hortense Cartier-Bresson. He won 1st prize at the Epinal International Competition, the “Modern Times” prize at the Clara Haskil Competition in 2015, the Thierry Scherz prize at the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad in 2016, and the general public discovered him at the Victoires de la Musique 2017, where he was nominated in the “instrumental soloist revelation” category. He has also been an associate artist at the Singer-Polignac Foundation since 2018.
His musical career has taken him to the greatest international stages, where he has performed with artists such as Renaud Capuçon, Victor Julien-Laferrière, Yan Levionnois, Mathilde Calderini, Ismaël Margain, Anna Göckel, David Kadouch, and as a soloist with the Orchestre National d’Île-de-France, the Orchestre de chambre de Lausanne or the Orchestre National de France, notably under the direction of Christian Zacharias, Pierre Dumoussaud and Ruth Reinhardt. His discography includes two albums dedicated to works for four hands by Schubert and Mozart, recorded with Ismaël Margain, a sonata disc with the cellist Yan Levionnois, a solo disc devoted to Schubert, Haydn and Debussy, and in 2021 a disc recorded with Renaud Capuçon, “Un Violon à Paris”.
