Emmanuel Pahud

Biography

Born: January 27, 1970; Geneva, Switzerland  
Emmanuel Pahud is an award winning French-Swiss flautist. He began his music studies at the age of six in Rome with Francois Binet. His family saw that he received lessons with some of Europe's finest players, including Michel Moinil and Carlos Bruneel in Brussels, and Peter-Lukas Graf in Basle.

He attended the Paris Conservatory, studying with Michel Debost, Alain Martion, Pierre Artaud, and Christian Larde. Even before graduating, he
Read more won the international music competitions in Duino in 1988 and Kobe in 1989. He graduated from the conservatory in 1990 with the First Prize, then continued to advance his studies in style and interpretation with one of France's greatest flautists, Aurele Nicolet.

During these years, he was the principal flautist of the Basle Radio Symphony under Nello Santi, and the Munich Philharmonic, conducted by the legendary Sergiu Celibidache. In 1992, Music Director Claudio Abbado invited him to become principal flautist of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. This is the same position from which James Galway leapt to international fame.

In the same year, Pahud won the Geneva International Music Competition. Other awards and recognitions include the Soloist's Prize in the French-speaking Community Radio Awards of Switzerland, the European Council's Juventus Prize, and the laureateship of the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation and the International Tribune for Musicians of UNESCO.

He began accepting international concert performances soon after settling into his position in Berlin. He has appeared as soloist with his own orchestra, in addition to: the Yomiuru Nippon Symphony, the London Symphony, the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, the Berlin Radio Symphony, and the Danish Radio Symphony.

Pahud also plays at many of the leading festivals of the world, often with pianist Eric Le Sage. His signing as an exclusive artist with EMI has resulted in his collaborations with pianist Stephen Kovacevich and cellist Truls Mork. His first EMI disc, released in 1996, was a set of the Mozart Flute Concertos and the Concerto for Flute and Harp. It won the Diapason "CD of the Year" award and the Radio France listeners' poll as favorite recording of the year. The same disc also won the Japanese Geijutsu Award, and a Fono-Forum award. A release called "Paris!" containing French flute music, in collaboration with Le Sage, won the Diapason d'Or.

His increasing concert and recording schedule resulted in a decision to resign from the Berlin Philharmonic in 2000, after which his musical home base became the position of Professor of Flute at Geneva Conservatoire. Read less
