Cécile Dorchêne

As a young student of only 16, Cécile Dorchêne was accepted at the conservatory in Paris where she studied with Roland Daugareil. At the same time she completed studies in musicology and music management at Sorbonne and took lessons in jazz violin with Pierre Blanchard. Subsequently she continued her violin studies with Viktor Tretjakow at the Musikhochschule Köln. Violin literature awakened her interests in historical performance practice and improvisation, and Cécile was able to explore these interests in sessions with pianist Paolo Alvarez. Since 2010 she has studied baroque violin with Petra Müllejans at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt. Cécile has gained much experience with renowned chamber music ensembles and orchestras, including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, l`orchestre national d`ile de France, Concerto con anima, La Stagione Frankfurt and the Freiburger Barockorchester.
