The isdaT viola class, under the tutelage of Juliette Gil-Perraud, co-soloist at the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, is part of a very comprehensive course combining university education, chamber music, chamber orchestra, orchestral training, artistic projects, internships on different themes, openness to transversality…
From the 2nd year of training, the focus is on working on pieces from the repertoire; this work is associated with an orchestral repertoire that will be featured in a behind-the-scenes, simulated competition. Master classes also take place regularly throughout the 3 years of the DNSPM, in particular with the regular attendance of Michel Michalakakos.
David Gaillard, principal viola of the Orchester de Paris and professor at the CNSMD in Paris, is the godfather of the viola class. He provides masterclasses and student follow-up, together with Professor Juliette Gil.
After her studies at the CNR d’Angers, she returned to the CNSMD de Paris, where she obtained a first medal in specialised music theory (class of J. Lequien), a first prize in viola (class of S. Collot) and a first prize in chamber music (class of C. Lardé). She also studied harmony and counterpoint there and took part in chamber music lessons with Messrs. Parrenin, Walter, Bourgues and Pidoux. A professor at the school of music in Mulhouse and a holder of a Certificate of Proficiency, she joined the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse in 1993 and took part in numerous chamber music concerts in the Toulouse region. Since March 2010, she has been a viola co-soloist.
