When Pierre Amoyal was only twelve years old, he completed his studies at the Paris Conservatory with a First Prize. The prodigy then left for Los Angeles to study with the legendary Jascha Heifetz. The two spent five intense years together, culminated by chamber music concerts and recordings with the cellist, Gregor Piatigorski.
His first appearance with the Berlin Philharmonic under Maestro von Karajan in Berlin was followed by many further performances with this orchestra, including the German premier of the Dutilleux Concerto under Lorin Maazel. In 1985, he made his recital debut in Carnegie Hall, which received outstanding critical acclaim. He was the youngest musician ever to be nominated as a professor at the Paris Conservatory.
Following his move to Switzerland, he was Professor at the Lausanne Conservatory, he also initiated there a novel music academy, dedicated to the violin/piano repertoire, which he gives annually with Anne Quéffelec. He was appointed as University Professor at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Pierre Amoyal is a very touching example of a virtuoso whose exceptional talents never hindered his love of hard work, nor a development of the most essential human qualities.
