Antoine Tamestit

Viola

Biography

Violist Antoine Tamestit is internationally recognized as a leading soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician, beloved for his unsurpassed technique and the much-vaunted beauty of his richly colored tone. His broad repertoire ranges from the Baroque to the present day, with his strong commitment to contemporary music is reflected in premieres of numerous works. Among the most important works Tamestit has premiered are Jörg Widmann’s Viola Concerto, Thierry Escaich’s La Nuit des chants, Bruno Mantovani’s Concerto for Two Violas with Tabea Zimmermann, and Olga Neuwirth’s Remnants of Songs and Weariness Heals Wounds.

In recent seasons Tamestit has performed with orchestras including the Vienna Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National de France, and Chamber Orchestra of Europe, among many others. He performs regularly with major conductors, such as John Eliot Gardiner, Alan Gilbert, Daniel Harding, Klaus Mäkelä, Paavo Järvi, Antonio Pappano, Kirill Petrenko, Simon Rattle, Francois-Xavier Roth, Yannick Nezet-Seguin, and Christian Thielemann. Antoine Tamestit was a founding member of Trio Zimmermann, in which he collaborates with Frank Peter Zimmermann and Christian Poltera. His other chamber music partners include Emanuel Ax, Isabelle Faust, Martin Fröst, Leonidas Kavakos, Yo-Yo Ma, Emmanuel Pahud, Cédric Tiberghien, Yuja Wang, Jörg Widmann, Shai Wosner, and the Ébène Quartet.

Antoine Tamestit records regularly with Harmonia Mundi as he continues to expand the scope of his vibrant discography. Born in Paris, he studied with Jean Sulem, Jesse Levine, and Tabea Zimmermann, and was the recipient of several coveted international prizes. Tamestit plays on the very first viola made by Antonio Stradivarius in 1672, generously loaned by the Habisreutinger Foundation.
