With the help of several prizes, the Albanian violinist Tedi Papavrami began, in the 90s, his career as a soloist and chamber musician. He was able to collaborate with conductors such as A. Papano, A. Jordan, F.X. Roth, G. Varga, M. Aeschenbacher, or partners such as Philippe Bianconi, Nelson Goerner or Martha Argerich. Since 2011, he has been working on Beethoven’s sonatas and trios with cellist Xavier Phillips and pianist François Frédéric Guy, with whom he performs regularly. His recording, including Eugène Ysaÿe’s 6 sonatas for solo violin and the composer’s 2-violin sonata (played with Svetlin Roussev), received a golden tuning fork and the « choc » of Diapason and Classica magazines in June 2014. Also passionate about literature, Tedi Papavrami is the official translator, in French, of the work of Ismail Kadaré, the great Albanian writer. Now living in Geneva, he has taught violin at the HEMU since September 2008.
