A 2022 City Music Foundation artist, Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel Artiste en Résidence, Frankfurt Ensemble Modern Academy and London Contemporary soloists member, London-based French violinist Emmanuel Coppey is building a promising concert career.
As a soloist, he collaborated with Rachel Podger, Alexei Ogrintchouk, Guy van Waas and Christopher Warren-Green, and he appeared on Belgian national television for the royal Christmas concert playing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Also a sought-after chamber musician, Emmanuel played with Nelson Goerner, Marc Coppey, Augustin Dumay, Emre Şener, Anna Vinitskaya, Barbara Hannigan, Nicolas Baldeyrou, François Salque, Guillaume Bellom, Martin Beaver, Sena Bielander, Bertrand Chamayou, Frank Braley, in major European chamber music festivals.
As an advocate of music education, Emmanuel performs in many community projects, through non-profit organisations such as Concerts de Poche, the Chapel Community Concerts and Paris Youth Music Society, which he created in 2021 in order to organise concerts in schools, emergency centres and retirement houses. His repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary music and includes all of Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas. As an arranger, he has written a showpiece based on Dukas Apprenti Sorcier.
Emmanuel has received guidance from legendary violinists György Pauk and Augustin Dumay. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London and Paris Conservatory where he studied with Philippe Graffin and Svetlin Roussev. His musical journey began with Larissa Kolos.
Emmanuel was supported by the Royal Academy of Music, Adami and Fondation de la Vocation.
He plays a magnificent Deconet violin from 1754, on loan from The Guttman Collection.
