Pierre Frapier

French-born Pierre Frapier graduated from London's Royal College of Music under Professor Itzhak Rashkovsky. Before that he had studied with Constantin and Rodika Bogdanas and with Marc Danel. Frapier has performed as soloist with the London City Orchestra, the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia and the Moscovia Chamber Orchestra. He has also played solo at the Montpellier Opera, at the Moscow Conservatory, at the Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv and in many of the main concert halls in the UK. Frapier saw success in the International Aram Khachaturian Violin Competition and the Zanucolli Competition in Italy. This year's projects include a collaboration with the actor Hugh Grant and director Stephen Frears in the BBC television production ‘A Very English Scandal'. Frapier teaches violin and chamber music at the Royal College of Music and plays a violin built by the Voller Brothers of London in 1894.
