Céline Moinet

Céline Moinet - Les stars de demain
Born in Lille in 1984, Céline Moinet studied the oboe and chamber music at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris with David Walter and Maurice Bourgue, and in 2006, she was awarded a Premier Prix in both disciplines. She also studied the Baroque oboe with Marcel Ponseele and Xenia Löffler.

In 2004 and 2005, she completed her orchestral training as a member of the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester under the direction of Claudio Abbado.

In 2006, Céline was appointed principal oboe of the Nationaltheater-Orchester Mannheim.  Since June 2008, she has occupied the same position with the celebrated Staatskapelle Dresden.  In the autumn of 2011, she was invited by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra to appear on an extended tour of Asia and Australia.  Céline is a guest principal with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and leading German orchestras such as the NDR Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the SWR Radiosinfonieorchester Stuttgart, the Philharmoniker Hamburg, and the orchestra of the Frankfurt Opera.

Céline Moinet appears regularly in solo and chamber repertoire. She has performed the major oboe concertos with the Staatskapelle Dresden, the Prague Philharmonia, the Pacific Music Festival Orchestra, the New Japan Philharmonic, the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra, the Kammerorchester Basel, and the Dresdner Kapellsolisten.  In 2014/2015, she will make her debut with the Orchestre National de Lille. 

Her chamber-music partners include Matthias Goerne, Andreas Haefliger and Christoph Eschenbach, the latter with whom she has been invited to perform as part of the Easter festival in Salzburg.

She records for harmonia mundi: her first solo CD was released in 2012 and was awarded 5 stars by Diapason.  The second disc is a collection of opera fantasies with harpist Sarah Christ.

Since April 2008, Céline Moinet has been Professor at the "Hochschule für Musik Carl-Maria von Weber" in Dresden.  She also gives regular masterclasses, including at the Sapporo Pacific Music Festival at the invitation of Fabio Luisi.
