Le French May Arts Festival & Hong Kong Sinfonietta invites the world-class French soloist
Born in Montreal and, between five and eight, living in Algeria, Jean-Guihen Queyras then grew up in France. He studied at Lyon Conservatoire, then at the Musikhochschule Freiburg (where he is now professor) and Mannes College in New York, with Timothy Eddy. His relationship with Boulez started when he worked with the Ensemble InterContemperain in Paris, where he also met Jonathan Harvey. He has subsequently premièred the Cello Concerto by Ivan Fedele.
