Marie-Laure BOUILLON

Holder of a first prize and the Concert License from the Ecole Normale de Paris in Dominique ETIEVANT's class, she also studied with James GALWAY, Michel DEBOST and Michel MORAGUES.

"Ms. Bouillon was a revelation in this class, she demonstrated superior musical intelligence, as well as a rare will, energy and ability to work. Furthermore, I was able to observe her great flexibility and her instinct for ensemble playing when I worked with her in an orchestra".

If chamber music is her passion, she is also fond of jazz, and also performs as a soloist with various orchestras, notably under the direction of Jêrome NAULAIS.

"I have to say that I was surprised by the musicality, the sonority, the sensitivity and the solidity of this young flautist".

Jérôme NAULAIS
Compositeur
Trombone Solo de l'Orchestre Intercontemporain

Since 2018, she has been playing a flute made by the American luthier Chris Abell.

Benoit ROULLAND

After having brilliantly obtained a first prize of Superior with congratulations and his prize of Excellence, he distinguished himself internationally at the Giuliani competition in Bari, Italy, and at the René Bartoli international competition, which he won.

His masters are Roberto AUSSEL and Alvaro PIERRI.

His full, round and powerful sound, his musicality and his immense sensitivity make him an outstanding soloist: "you'll have to get used to success" they predict.

 

The only guitarist selected at the Maurice Ravel International Academy in 1993 and at the Musicades de Lyon in 1995, he rubs shoulders with the greatest masters of chamber music.

 

He makes numerous arrangements for the duo, whose exceptional character is unanimously acclaimed.

He plays on a spruce guitar made by the French luthier Dominique FIELD.
