Yoan Héreau

Having been trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris as a choral conductor, vocal coach and chamber musician, Yoan Héreau has worked as a vocal coach at the Académie de l’Opéra de Paris during three seasons.
Since then, he has regularly performed as a recitalist, concert soloist as well as a chamber musician. He is also a much appreciated recital partner of singers, having developed a privileged collaboration with the soprano Raquel Camarinha and the bass-baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer.

His various activities led him to collaborate with conductors such as Alain Altinoglu, Ottavio Dantone, Philippe Jordan, Marc Minkowski, Daniel Harding, Philippe Herreweghe, Matthias Pintscher, Mathieu Romano, Donato Renzetti, Léo Warynski in France (Opéra Bastille, Opéra Garnier, Philharmonie de Paris, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Théâtre du Châtelet) and abroad (Germany, China, Spain, United States, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland).

Since 2019 he has been the artistic director of the Musicales de Saint-Maurice festival in Clohars- Carnoët. After his first recording with Raquel Camarinha (Naïve), which was unanimously acclaimed by the critics, two new programmes will be released by Mirare during the current season: one featuring Raquel Camarinha and himself performing Chopin’s complete melodies, the other one featuring Schubert’s Winterreise along with Edwin Crossley-Mercer.
