Olivier Darbellay

Olivier Darbellay

Olivier Darbellay was born into a musical family in Berne, where he studied cello at the Conservatory as a pupil of Patrick Demenga and Peter Hörr and French horn under Thomas Müller, in both Berne and Basel. Darbellay graduated with distinction in Freiburg under Bruno Schneider. In 2000 he won the competition for young soloists held in Lisbon and he won the soloist of the year 2000 prize in the Communauté des Radios publiques de langue françaises in 1999. Since then he has appeared as soloist and chamber musician at prestigious concert venues in Europe, North America and Asia. Darbellay is equally at home with ancient music played on period instruments and modern music. He premieres new works regularly and works closely with many composers. He is principal French horn with the Berner Symphonie-Orchester and the Basel Chamber Orchestra. He is also Professor of French horn in Lucerne and Lausanne and teaches in masterclasses and workshops around the world.
