Spyckerelle, Ernst

Ernst Spyckerelle was born in 1991 and started playing the violin at the age of six, after hearing a concert where that instrument was played. He also studied percussion and piano, but decided after a while to focus solely one instrument - the violin.
His first violin lessons were with Claude Jacoby and Sophie Vermeersch, at the CMN in Luxembourg. Aged 14, he went back to his native country Belgium to study with Nico Baltussen at the Lemmensinstituut and Philippe Koch, concertmaster of the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg. He graduated in 2015 at the conservatory of Amsterdam, under the tutelage of Kees Koelmans, and completed another master in film-composition in 2018 while taking private lessons and masterclasses with Wim Henderickx and Willem Jeths.
Prizeholder of the "Concours des Jeunes solistes Luxembourg" in 2003 and goldmedalist of that same competition in 2012, he holds also a third prize at the Triomphe de l'Art string competition in Brussels (2015). He has had the possibility to meet and study with violinists as amongst others Midori, Liviu Prunaru, Tedi Papavrami, Albrecht Breuninger…
His passion for contemporary music has brought him to performances with Ensemble Intercontemporain, Studio MusikFabrik, Ulysses Ensemble, Lucerne Festival Academy, New European Ensemble, Asko|Schoenberg Ensemble to work with artists such as Matthias Pintscher, Heinz Holliger, Reinbert de Leeuw, Susanna Mälkki, Jean-Philippe Wurtz and put him in touch with composers as Helmut Lachenmann, Wolfgang Rihm, Philippe Hurel. He is continuing to perfect his approach to contemporary music with Jeanne-Marie Conquer, violinist of Ensemble Intercontemporain.
He is violinist and arranger of the Amsterdam-based Intercontinental Ensemble, a chamber music nonet for which he has composed works but also rearranged symphonies to be performed in a smaller setting and has actively searched for collaborations with other art disciplines. Highlights of this collaboration are a series of improvisations on paintings and a modern dance performance with Anni Kaila on J.S. Bach’s 2nd sonata for violin solo, BWV1004.
