Raphaël Sévère (Clarinet)
Having caught the world’s attention as the youngest musician ever nominated as the “Revelation Instrumental Soloist of the Year” at 2010 Victoires de la Musique Classique, Raphaël Sévère won the 1st Prize of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York in 2013, as well as eight out of the ten Special Prizes. This victory led to his performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC and Merkin Concert Hall in New York. Now only 24, Sévère is already a highly regarded representative of the French school of clarinet. Recent highlights include performances with Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, London Philharmonic, Orchestre National de France and Russian National Orchestra and at such prestigious venues as the Berlin Philharmonie and Alice Tully Hall.
