Justine Leroux began piano and transverse flute simultaneously at the Bourg-la-Reine — Sceaux conservatory, obtaining her piano DEM with honors and unanimous approval. She followed an advanced training cycle with Jean-Claude Henriot at the Evry conservatory before entering the CNSMD de Lyon with honors in Géry Moutier’s class, where she completed her studies with a Master’s degree with honors in Florent Boffard’s class. She continued her classical training at the CRR de Rueil-Malmaison with a prize for excellence in accompaniment in the class of Angéline Pondepeyre, at the CNSMD de Paris with a Master’s degree in pianoforte in the class of P. Cohen, a Master’s degree in accompaniment in the class of Jean-Frédéric Neuburger, and a Diplôme d’Artiste Interprète-répertoire contemporain et création in the class of Hae-sun Kang.
Fascinated by the diversity of the repertoire, from an early age she accompanied various instruments as well as choirs and singers, at the conservatories of the XII arrondissement of Paris, XVI arrondissement of Paris, Bourg-la-Reine – Sceaux, Fresnes, Rueil-Malmaison, Epinay-sur-Seine and Vitry-sur-Seine… She was noticed by Yvonne Loriod and Roger Muraro during her time at the Acanthes center, where she nurtured her passion for contemporary music through the teachings of Claude Helffer, Ian Pace, Siegfried Mauser and others. Her taste for challenges led her to perform the complete Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus by Olivier Messiaen at the ENS de Lyon in 2011, and the complete 48 esquisses by Alkan at the Palazzetto Bru-Zane in Venice during the season dedicated to him in 2013. The youngest participant, she received a special mention in the 2007 Olivier Messiaen Competition. In 2012, she was awarded the Palazzetto Bru-Zane prize in the final of the Concours International de Piano Contemporain d’Orléans, and the Ginastera prize in the 2014 edition of the same competition.
Justine Leroux looks forward to sharing her passion and experience of the stage by joining the isdaT teaching team in 2022, as accompanist to the string, woodwind and brass classes.
