Rendez-vous Musical #91

The Sunday concert series is back, kicking off the season with a program specially created for the European Heritage Days. During the Rendez-Vous Musical #91, the musicians will talk about their lives at the FEU and what it means to live and study in this Art Deco building.

These concerts, which are an opportunity for the musicians to present the works they are perfecting or creating, are known for their friendly and warm atmosphere. The audience, delighted by the (re)discovery of classical and contemporary works and new compositions, often stays to chat with the musicians, who take great pleasure in these exchanges, always talking about music and their discipline with great passion.

The Resident Musicians

Born in Boston and raised in Bucharest, Edgar Jaber is currently pursuing a PhD degree in Applied Mathematics at ENS Paris-Saclay. He is a pupil of the Romanian pianists Toma Popovici and Viorica Rădoi as well as of American pianist Jay Gottlieb. Also a conductor, Jaber is the current musical director of the Orchestre du Collège Néerlendais at Cité Universitaire. His repertoire focuses mainly on classical and romantic German composers as well as early twentieth century modernism.

Jonathan Mutel is a prominent violinist on the international stage, and open to many musical repertoires. His passion for chamber music and the symphonic repertoire has led him to perform in France (Philharmonie de Paris, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Salle Gaveau) but also in Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and China. At the Amsterdam Conservatory of Music he perfected his playing and expanded his repertoire with his teacher Peter Brunt. Within this context he has been exploring new musical horizons, including the baroque repertoire on periodic instruments as well as the modern repertoire and musical improvisation. Jonathan Mutel studies jazz violin at the conservatory and teache violin at the Fontenay-le-Fleury music school.

Ian Tomaz is an American pianist currently based in Paris, France. He has studied at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris Alfred Cortot since 2021, working with Pascal Roge. He is in residence at the Fondation des Etats Unis in 2022-2023 as a Harriet Hale Woolley Scholar, performing concerts as an Artist in Residence at the FEU and around Paris while working on the major solo, chamber and art song compositions of Francis Poulenc. Since moving to Paris, he has performed at Salle Cortot, Musee J.J. Henner and the Centre Culturel Czech and was also chosen as a full scholarship participant for the Academie de Musique Francaise, playing for renowned French pianists including Michel Beroff, Jacques Rouvier, Anne Queffelec, Marie Catherine Girod and Francoise Thinat. He began his studies at the ENMP thanks to the generous support of the Bourse Marandon from the Societe des Professeurs de Français et Francophones D’Amérique in New York.
