Véronique Bernar

Véronique was nine when she discovered the clarinet. She started learning at the Conservatory of Music of Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg, where she got her final diploma in 2015.

After winning several clarinet competitions in Luxembourg, she came to the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in 2013, where she passed her bachelor diploma with distinction.

Besides her passion to play as an orchestral clarinettist (as in the ‘Orchestre des Jeunes de la Grande-Région’, or the ‘Military orchestra of Luxembourg’), she admires playing as a soloist (as in the 1st clarinet concerto by Louis Spohr, accompanied by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Luxembourg) and is a particular fan of the works of Beethoven and Carl Nielsen.

Cédric De Bruycker

The seven-year-old Cédric started playing the clarinet at the Arlon Academy of Music. He was struck by the wealth and range of this instrument, and realised it could play virtually any repertoire.

He pursued his studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and then specialised in contemporary music at the Royal Conservatory of Gent with the Ictus and Spectra ensembles.

His musical preferences are modern classical composers such as Shostakovich and Prokofiev, but his absolute passion is for contemporary music. In this vein, he has taken part in various premières, whilst still indulging in the occasional musical.
