Born into a family of passionate musicians, Deborah Nemtanu chose to take up the violin at the age of four. Her career is synonymous with precocious success and diversity of talent.
After winning a Premier Prix à l’unanimité at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris in 2001 (class of Gérard Poulet), she soon found her talent meeting with international recognition.
Since 2005 she has been leader (violon solo super soliste) of the Orchestre de chambre de Paris, to which she was appointed by unanimous decision of the jury. Curious and passionate in her approach, Deborah Nemtanu has gone even further by directing the orchestra and thus giving the concerto a genuine spirit of chamber music. She has performed Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. She has also multiplied fruitful musical encounters in concert series and festivals – including La Folle Journée in Nantes and Tokyo – with such artists as Gautier and Renaud Capuçon, Stephen Kovacevich, François Leleux, Emmanuel Pahud, and Jian Wang.
Deborah Nemtanu plays a violin by Domenico Montagnana dating from 1740-1745, acquired and generously made available by Monceau Assurances, which is also the orchestra’s patron. She has also benefited from the kind loan by M. Philippe Faure of a violin by Nicola Gagliano.
