Elodie Bugni started playing the violin aged 4. She started her musical career at the age of 11, performing the virtuoso works of Wieniawski, Tartini and Saraste directed by various conductors, including Antoine Marguier. She later appeared as a soloist with numerous swiss and international orchestras, performing concertos by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Bach, and Mozart.
Guest artist of numerous festivals, she is invited to Le Printemps de l’Académie Ravel and Les Cordes en ballade, and plays in string trios, quartets or quintettes for France Musique, notably in the company of Miguel Da Silva and Jean-François Heisser.
Following studies with Jean-Pierre Wallez and Gyula Stuller, Elodie Bugni graduated brilliantly from the Haute école de musique of Geneva and Fribourg with orchestral, solo, and teaching diplomas. She then completed her musical training with the Debussy, Parisii, Manfred and Sine Nomine quartets, and studied violin with Tibor Varga, Francesco di Angelis and Patrice Fontanarosa. In 2005 she was named “Talent d’or” by the Rotary Club and won first prize at the Concours Suisse de Musique pour la Jeunesse.
She has toured the world with various chamber music ensembles, performing in Germany, the Czech Republic, Mexico and China, to name but a few. Invited to Brazil, she later participated in a project close to her heart: coaching the Neojiba Youth Orchestra, a socio-educational project for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Elodie Bugni joined the Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse under the direction of Tugan Sokhiev as a member of the first violins in 2010, and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, directed by Marek Janowski, in 2011. She was also concertmaster for two season at the Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille.
