Clémence Crunelle is a cellist from south-east France. She began playing the cello at the age of 6 at the Valence Conservatoire, in Franck Lepinasse's class. She then went on to study with Véronique Marin at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Rueil-Malmaison. 

Throughout her career, she has taken part in a number of chamber music masterclasses under the guidance of Yovan Markovitch and David Walter, as well as numerous instrumental and orchestral ensemble projects. 

She also performs as a chamber musician and soloist at workshops and private concerts.

Hadrien Pichon began playing the piano at the age of 11 on the island of Margarita in Venezuela. Initially self-taught, he attended intensive courses at a music school in Caracas, where he won his first national competition two years later. The following year, Hadrien performed with the San Antonio de los Altos Orchestra, playing Mozart's 6th Concerto.

In 2016, after winning his second national competition, he moved to Paris and joined the class of Rena Shereshevskaya, an internationally renowned Franco-Russian teacher, with whom he obtained his DEM, and his advanced prize at the CRR in Rueil-Malmaison.

Throughout his apprenticeship, Hadrien regularly attended masterclasses with Laurent Cabasso, Hortense Cartier-Bresson, Jonas Vitaud, Alissa Zoubritski, Gaspard Dehaene and Bernard d'Ascoli.

Last summer, Hadrien played Rachmaninov's 2nd Concerto accompanied by the Côte de Nacre Academy Orchestra.

He is now in the process of obtaining his Artist Diploma from the Ecole Normale Alfred Cortot and is preparing for international competitions.

Martin Alecian,

A CPES student at the crr in Rueil-Malmaison, he has been studying the clarinet, a traditional instrument, for the past 11 years at a number of conservatoires with teachers including Emmanuelle Leventoux, Louis-Vincent Bruère, Jean-Marc Fessard and, more recently, Claire Voisin.

Following a classical French academic education, at the age of 14 he discovered a passion for Klezmer music, drawing much of his inspiration from the music of Giora Feidman and Yom. He formed his own group in 2021 and began composing.

Later, like many others, he decided to share this passion and began teaching as a substitute before settling here at the Rachmaninov Conservatoire.

A number of his pupils went on to study at regional conservatoires or in special music classes.
