Clémence de Forceville was born in 1991 in Paris, and started violin lessons at the age of 4 with Radu Blidar. At the age of only 9, she was winning prizes in national competitions (Canet en Roussillon, Leopold-Bellan) and had her debut with orchestra. After obtaining her Master's degree from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris in Oliver Charlier's class with unanimous top marks, she pursued her studies with Antje Weithaas at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin, where she also studied trio repertoire with Eberhard Feltz. She also studied with Boris Kushnir as an Erasmus exchange student. Read more of Clémence's biography on the Hieronymus Quartet website.
