Julien Beaudiment

On Sabbatical in 2019

Conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Lyon (France)

    After holding the position of first solo flute at the prestigious Los Angeles Philharmonic Gustavo of Dudamel, Julien Beaudiment is now first solo flute of the Orchestre de l’Opéra national in Lyon and professor at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique in Lyon.

    Brilliant representative of the French school of flute, he crosses the Channel at the age of 18 to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with Paul Edmund-Davies. He entered later at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique in Paris, where he won the first prize of flute and chamber music in the class of Sophie Cherrier and Vincent Lucas, and Michel Moraguès for chamber music.

    He also studied with major flutists such as Maxence Larrieu, Jacques Zoon, Joshua Smith, Ransom Wilson, Vicens Prats and Benoit Fromanger.

    From the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles to the Suntory Hall in Tokyo, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and the Royal Albert Hall in London, he performed in the most beautiful halls in the world, including the London Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.

    Passionate about chamber music, he won the International Sonata Duet Competition in Barcelona with pianist Laetitia Bougnol. He has also performed with musicians such as Lawrence Foster, Emil Tabakov, Karl Heinz Steffens, Jonathan Stockhammer, Enrico Onofri Giardino Armonico and Stefano Montanari.

    Education figures at a high place in his agenda. In addition to his professorship at the Conservatory of Lyon, where he also succeeded to Philippe Bernold and Maxence Larrieu, he teaches every summer at the International Summer Academy in Nice, and at the academy of the festival Les Arcs and in master classes around the world.

    Julien Beaudiment is also a member and ambassador of the “Kidney Foundation”, a cause for which he gives his time and energy.
