"Poets of violin are alive, and well" 

Hugues Borsarello was not only born in a musician family, one could say about him that he was born to music, that music has always been part of him even before his birth, music has shaped him. He plays the music score of his life without any hesitation as if it is an evidence and always in the major mode. He has not choosen the violin, the instrument has chosen him. A great beginning... 
Afterwards, everything went fast. He received the First Prize at the Conservatoire National de Région in Paris, he joinded the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris were he studied with Patrice Fontanarosa and created a trio together with David Saudubray (piano) and Gautier Capuçon (cello) because music and human relations are strongly linked in his career. 
Hugues Borsarello has been part of the «Gustav Mahler Jugend Orchestra» under the baton of Claudio Abbado and Seiji Ozawa ; he also took part in different tours with Yuri Bashmet, Yo-Yo Ma... This experience was an opportunity for him to play with several famous orchestras and he discovered very young the large symphonic repertory as solist violinist. Since 2009, he is solist violinist and art director of La Follia, orchestre de chambre d'Alsace. 
Hugues Borsarello is a passionated solist and plays with sincerity and deep emotion. He offers to his audience all the pleasure he feels himself while playing a complex music score which he fills with musical references to the compositors. For the time of a concert he opens our senses to the mysterious world of music, transforming in a natural way the written notes into sonor material. 
From his family backgrounds and because of musician friendship, Hugues Borsarello has intimate links with chamber music. With Jérôme Ducros, Olivier Charlier, Gautier Capuçon, Laure Favre-Kahn..., he takes part in major festivals. In 2010, Hugues founded a chamber music ensemble with his brothers and sisters who are all professionnal musicians too. It performed for the first time in August 2010 during the Festival du Périgord Noir together with Gautier Capuçon. This successful experience was the beginning of a new period in Hugues Borsarello’s career whose musical energy pushes him continuously to to discover and explore new fields.
