Pierre Amoyal - Violin  Concertist Professor at Conservatoire de Lausanne HEM
Pierre Amoyal is well known to music lovers. He has played with the greatest conductors and orchestras in the most prestigious concert halls of the world. This virtuoso is also the lucky owner of the one of the most beautiful violins ever made : the famous "Kochanski," a Stradivarius that was stolen from him in 1987, and which was miraculously recovered four years later by the Italian "Carabinieri". When Amoyal was only twelve years old, he completed his studies at the Paris Conservatory with a First Prize. The prodigy then left for Los Angeles to study with the legendary Jascha Heifetz. The two spent five intense years together, culminated by chamber music concerts and recordings with the cellist, Gregor Piatigorski.
At the age of 22, he made his European debut with the late Sir Georg Solti and the Orchestre de Paris, followed by appearances in all of the major European capitals, as well as in the USA, Canada, Mexico, South America and in the Far East. Amoyal has played under the most important conductors of the last three decades: von Karajan, Ozawa, Boulez, Maazel, Solti, Pretre, Sanderling, Roshdestvensky, Rattle, and Mung Whun Chung, to name only a few.
His first appearance with the Berlin Philharmonic under Maestro von Karajan in Berlin was followed by many further performances with this orchestra, including the German premier of the Dutilleux Concerto under Lorin Maazel. In 1985, he made his recital debut in Carnegie Hall, which received outstanding critical acclaim. 
Herbert von Karajan and Pierre Amoyal 
He was the youngest musician ever to be nominated as a professor at the Paris Conservatory. Following his move to Switzerland, he now teaches at the Lausanne Conservatory. Also in Lausanne, he initiated a novel music academy, dedicated to the violin/piano repertoire, which he gives annually with Bruno Canino. 
Pierre Amoyal is a very touching example of a virtuoso whose exceptional talents never hindered his love of hard work, nor a development of the most essential human qualities.
Pierre Amoyal is also a passionate teacher. He is the artistic director of the Academie de Lausanne, devoted exclusively to the violin.piano repertoire, which he founded with Alexis Weissenberg and 
nd now co-directs with Bruno Canino.
In conjunction with the Lausanne Conservatory (Haute Ecole de Musique) Pierre Amoyal founded the Camerata Lausanne, an ensemble made up of some 12 to 13 talented young musicians from around the world. The ensemble performs throughout Switzerland and Europe and at the major festivals in France.
