Mr. Florent Héau (Clarinet)

Florent Héau studied at the Paris Conservatory (CNSM de Paris) in Michel Arrignon’s class. After having received several First Prizes between 1991 and 1995 in international competitions, Florent Héau has quickly established himself as one of the most important figures of the French clarinet school; a brilliant tradition he himself relentlessly perpetuates worldwide, by both giving concerts and master-classes.

Regularly invited to various festivals (Deauville Folles Journées de Nantes, Bel-Air in Chambery, Orangerie de Sceaux, Auvers-sur-Oise), Florent Héau continues to expand his circle of chamber music partners, including Marielle Nordmann, Marcela Roggeri, Gerard Causse, Roland Pidoux, Henri Demarquette, Jérôme Ducros, Régis Pasquier, Patrice Fontanarosa, Renaud and Gautier Capuçon and the Prazak, Manfred, Ysaÿe and Parisii quartets.

He has appeared as a soloist with the European Camerata, the Orchestre de Bretagne, the Orchestre de Picardie, the Orchestre de la Basse-Normandie, the Orchestre de Nancy, the Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, the Polish Radio Chamber Orchestra and the Prague Chamber Orchestra, to name a few.

Over the years, he has enjoyed continuous success with his recordings of various programs, including Sonatas by Brahms and Reger (with Patrick Zygmanowski), the Trios of Beethoven (with Jérôme Ducros and Henri Demarquette), pieces for clarinet and strings by Nicolas Bacri, the chamber works of Mozart (with Manfred Quartet) and Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto (with the Prague Chamber Orchestra, TransArt Live label).

A renowned teacher, Florent Héau is clarinet professor at the Paris CRR, Lausanne’s University of Music (HEMU) and at the Osaka College of Music in Japan (guest professor). He is regularly invited to teach in many countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Mr. Jean-Marc Volta (Bass Clarinet)

Jean-Marc Volta began studying music when he was 5 with Mr. Bianconi who introduced him to the clarinet in 1958. In 1962 he went to the Conservatoire de Metz in Mr. Genvrin’s advanced class. In 1966 he won the price for clarinet and in 1967 he won the price for overall excellence and the price for chamber music. In 1972 he went to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris where he worked with Ulysse Delecluse (clarinet) and Christian Lardé (chamber music) and was a prize winner in 1975.

In 1976 he went to the Musique de la Garde Républicaine, then to the Nouvel Orchestre Philharmonique as second soloist. In 1977 he was appointed first soloist at the Orchestre National de France and also joined the Quintette à vent de France and the Octuor à vent Français (from 1977 to 1984). In 1990 Jean-Marc Volta and his good friends and musicians Carlos Dourthé and Walter Civitaréale formed the Trio Européen de Luxembourg and in 1992 they recorded Beethoven’s Trios for clarinet (QM 6940 Quantum).

Jean-Marc Volta has taken part in numerous festivals (Festival d’Aix, Orange, Montpellier, Festival de Paris, Festival de la Côte d’Opale, de Luxembourg). He regularly plays in concerts hosted by France Music with soloists from the Orchestre National de France.

Since 1987 he has been technical and artistic advisor for the prestigious instrument maker Buffet Crampon, where he takes part in the development of new clarinet models (bass clarinet, basset horn, alto) as well as giving masterclasses, concerts and classes in France and abroad.

Since 1990 he has edited “Clarinettes” for International Music Diffusion in order to encourage the writing of contemporary works. In 1995 his method for playing the bass clarinet was published. In 1998 he took part in the ICA with Philippe Berrod from the Orchestre de Paris (Columbus Ohio USA). Jean-Marc Volta has played Mozart’s Grande Partita with Jeffrey Tate and performed it again in 2000 with Riccardo Muti at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.

Jean-Marc Volta is currently teaching at the Ecole Normale Cortot in Paris.
