We are extremely honored to present Marc Danel
Marc Danel was born in France and grew up in Lille, where he learned violin with his sister and with Jezdimir Vujicic. He went then to study in Cologne by Prof Igor Ozim, where he finished brilliantly his study in 1992.
In 1991, he founded the Danel Quartet, with whom he had been studying extensively with the Amadeus and Borodin Quartets, as well as with Piere Penassou, Hugh Maguire, Walter Levin and Fiodor Druzhinin.
As leader of the quartet, he was major prizewinner of all the six competitions where he took part, from 1991 to 1995, including Evian, London, St Petersburg.
Since 1991, he did more than 2500 concerts with the quartet, playing in many of the major halls in Europe, USA, Russia, China, Japan, Taiwan, South America, Central Asia. He has been recording more than 20 CDs, who have been rewarded many awards in Europe and the US.
He has been performing the complete cycle of Shostakovitch quartets more than 25 times in concert, and often the cycle of quartets by Beethoven, Weinberg or Bartok.
With his quartet, he participated widely in the rediscovery of the great soviet composer Mechtislav Weinberg, playing his quartets extensively since the 90s and having done the still only complete recording of his 17 string quartets, which ended in 2009. In 2019, for the centenary of the composer,
he is going to perform 7 times the complete cycle of quartets, from which he has done the first performance of some of them.
With the quartet, he is in residence at Manchester University.
Marc Danel is artistic leader of the Dutch National String Quartet Academy (NSKA), from which many of its students have won major competitions.
He is also currently teaching in CNSDM Lyon and IMEP Namur. Some of his students have been winning competition and performed as soloists with various orchestras in the recent past.
He did Master Classes in all the major countries in Europe, USA, Japan, Taiwan, Bielorussia, and has a regular collaboration with the National Youth Orchestra of Chile, playing concerts and doing Master Classes.
