Biography

PIANO

 

The Swiss-French pianist Camille Sublet is leading an active and diverse career as a soloist and chamber musician. She made her debut with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra at the Tonhalle Zurich in 2012. Further engagements followed with, among others, the Sinfonie Orchester Biel Solothurn, the Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock, the Solothurn City Orchestra and the Orchestra Arte Frizzante under conductors such as Wojciech Rajski, Graziella Contratto, Kaspar Zehnder, Brian Schembri, Harty Tam and Harald Siegel.

Camille Sublet is a very experienced Lied accompanist and as a passionate chamber musician, she perfoms in a variety of ensembles. One of these groups is the Spanish Ensemble Bayona who were artist in residence for several seasons at the Zaragoza Auditorium. Ensemble Bayona also won the prestigious Ursula and Dwight Mamlok Prize 2020 and made their debut in 2021 at the Konzerthaus Berlin.

Camille Sublet, born in 1994 in Biel, Switzerland, began playing the piano at the age of seven. At the age of 15, she entered the Bachelor's degree programme at the Bern University of the Arts in the class of the Polish pianist Tomasz Herbut, while at the same time continuing her literary studies at the Gymnasium. In 2014, she furthered her studies under Aleksandar Madzar at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, where she obtained a Master’s degree with high distinction and a year later the Concert - Musicus diploma. She received expert advice from Andreas Staier, Elza Kolodin, Akiko Ebi, Antonio Meneses and Gary Hoffmann. Her passion for Mozart’s concertos led her to work with Malcolm Bilson, and her interest in contemporary music to follow masterclasses with Marta Kurtág and Wolfgang Rihm. Her concerts have been recorded by Radio SRF, Deutschlandfunk and Classical Planet, among others. 

CULTURAL MANAGEMENT

 

Ever since she was a piano student, it has been clear to Camille Sublet that she would not only concentrate on playing her instrument, but also on the organisational and promotional elements involved.

In 2015 she founded the Hispano-Swiss Music Association with the cellist Eros Jaca and the assistance of the Spanish Embassy in Bern. The aim of this association is to promote cultural exchange between the Spanish-speaking countries and Switzerland. To this end, several concerts are organised every year. The emphasis is on innovative programming, including both traditional and rarely performed works. The organisation of interdisciplinary projects is an important component of the association's philosophy.

Camille Sublet gained professional experience in the office of the Swiss Youth Music Competition, as a trainee in the management office of the Kammerorchester Basel and in the office of the Biel-Solothurn Symphony Orchestra.

Since 2019, she has worked as a production manager for various projects, including the organisation of a tour in Mexico for the Swiss trio Retro Disco. She is currently working on the new production of Georges Aperghis' Zeugen in a concert version, with performances scheduled in Switzerland, Germany and France.

In 2021 she completed a CAS in Business Administration. She is currently attending a CAS in communication at the Bern University of Applied Sciences.
