Brilliant winner of the Grand Concours International Long-Thibaud and of the International Competition in Indianapolis in 1990, Virginie Robilliard had pursued an international career as soloist from a young age and she performed with a lot of orchestras under the direction of conductors as Yuri Temirkanov, Sergiu Comissiona, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, among others.

At age 19 she made her debut in New York City with the Concert no. 2 of Bartòk in Avery Fisher Hall, unanimously recognized by The New York Times.

Born in a musician family, Virginie Robilliard gave her first concert at age 5. She studied in CNR in Lyon in Huguette Lombard’s class and then obtained the First prize with unanimous praise from the jury in National Superior Conservatory of Music and Dance in Lyon in Jacques Ghestem’s class. She graduated also from the Juilliard School in New York City in the class of Dorothy Delay in 1993.

Passionate about teaching, Virginie Robilliard created, thanks to Elizabeth Marechal and the Mozarteum Foundation, a violin school in Caracas in 2000.

Since 2015 she has been teaching at the Lausanne High School of Music and actively participating in the online Master Class with the I-Classical Academy.

Robilliard recorded a live DVD of the concert of Brahms and Tchaikovsky with the municipal orchestra of Caracas with the direction of Rodolfo Samglibeni. She recorded with Hungaroton the trios of Dvorak and Brahms alongside Peter Szabo et Frédéric-Vaysse-Knitter. With her brother Bruno Robilliard, published by Hortus, they recorded the sonatas of Franck, Debussy et Fauré.

She plays regularly in trio with David Louwerse et François Daudet.

She is also passionate about improvisation and traditional music, hence the creation of «Choc et Fusion» for violin and African percussion, with the exceptional Thomas Guei.

Concerned with injustice and the respect of our environment, Virginie Robilliard is committed to giving concerts for humanitarian causes, leading to creating a better world through her Art.
