Biography

French violinist Ambroise Aubrun, Assistant Professor of Violin at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, described as a performer with a “marvelous ease, suppleness and beauty of sound” (A. Busser, Nice-Matin), enjoys an international career as a soloist, recitalist, chamber and orchestral musician and pedagogue. The recipient of numerous awards, (laureate of the Langart Foundation, winner of the Charles Oulmont Prize of the Fondation de France, 1st Prize winner of the Vatelot competition and Mouans Sartoux Compétition), Aubrun has performed extensively in Europe and North America in halls such as Salzburg Haus Für Mozart, Yerevan Khachaturian Grand Hall, Los Angeles Broad Stage, Zipper Hall, Chicago Bradley Hall and Paris Hotel des Invalides, and has shared the stage with Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Scott St. John, Martin Chalifour, Fred Sherry, Clive Greensmith, Carrie Dennis, Richard O’Neill, Rohan de Saram, and the Borroméo and Ebène string quartets, among others.

Highlights of the 2019-20 season include the release of his second album for the Editions Hortus Label, a Puerto Rico tour with Beethoven triple concerto and several recitals in the USA and Europe.

An advocate for contemporary music, Aubrun has premiered over 20 works and has closely worked with composers such as Eric Tanguy, Alyssa Weinberg, Mark Carlson, Roger Bourland and Juan Colomer.

Aubrun graduated at age 19 from the Paris National Superior Conservatory where he studied with Roland Daugareil and Serge Pataud. He then studied at UCLA (D.M.A.) with Guillaume Sutre, and at the Colburn Conservatory of Music (Artist Diploma) with Martin Beaver.

Prior to his appointment at UNLV, Aubrun was teaching Violin and Chamber Music at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and UC Santa Barbara. He has also served on the faculty of the Montecito International Academy, The Chamber Music Unbound Festival and Academy, Foosa Academy, Impulse New Music Festival and the Socal Chamber Music Workshop.

He plays a Matteo Goffriller violin, on a generous loan by the Langart Foundation.
