Iris Guémy was born in Paris in 1996.
She grew up in a cultured, international environment, with a Swedish mother who is a painter and a French father who is a professor of Scandinavian culture. Her sister is also studying music.
She began studying cello at the age of 7, at the Conservatory of Music in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris. Two years later, she was accepted into the Paris CRR (Regional Conservatory), studying in Marcel Bardon’s class.
Iris continued her studies at the Paris CRR with Raphaël Pidoux from 2011 onwards, and in June 2013 she was awarded her musical studies diploma with the distinction of being the best student of the year.
Since September 2013, she has been studying Baroque cello with David Simpson. She is a member of a quartet featuring a piano and, from October 2013, she was enrolled in the Concert Performer’s Study Cycle at the Paris CRR, directed by Louis Fima and the Ysaÿe Quartet.
She began attending the Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg (Germany) in October 2014, where she has been in Elena Cheah’s class.
Iris Guémy has taken part in numerous master classes, with David Walter and Jacques Tys (chamber music), Maria de Macedo, Anssi Kartunnen, Konrad von Abel, Gary Hoffman, Yovan Markovitch, Troels Svane, Jérôme Pernoo, and Pierre Stauch (contemporary music).
“For a long time, I played on a mass-manufactured Chinese cello that my parents bought me, and for four years now, I have reached its limits and can go no further with this instrument. Since then, with the help of my professors, I have been loaned better-made cellos, but these are still temporary measures…
By force of circumstances, I have played on very different instruments that were not always suitable, and I endeavored to get the best sounds out of them by working on my technique. But whilst making progress, an image firmed up in my mind of the sound that I am seeking to achieve. And the time comes when the instrument cannot produce what I want; it has its technical limitations even if I do manage prodigious feats!
Playing on a new cello will help me to learn more, to find other tones, and other ways of tackling the strings. What I am currently seeking is a timbre that has a density and a depth, like a third dimension. As I play a modern repertoire as well as a Baroque one, it would be great if the cello that is going to be built would be multi-purpose.
I really do hope this project will reach fruition; for me it is something I hadn’t dared hope for, as my parents would never have the resources to buy a cello made by Charles Coquet!
And it is so fascinating to follow the creation of an instrument… I really do look forward to discovering what a stringed-instrument maker’s work is all about, of seeing what approach he adopts for designing the instrument, and monitoring the steps involved in making it.
For that to work, there has to be a team backing the project: all the contributors, the Association, the instrument maker and me form a collaborative effort that I am so happy to be associated with... I think it’s awesome that this is a joint effort, involving the concept of having exchanges, as I will be able to meet certain donors and play for them.
If it works out, I will be particularly proud to present the instrument in Germany, where I am currently studying, and in Sweden, where I am going to give concerts, whilst providing a presentation of the approach we adopted. I will be sort of like an ambassador for French stringed-instrument making…”

I Lombardi alla Prima Crociata (The Lombards on the First Crusade) is an operatic dramma lirico in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Temistocle Solera, based on an epic poem by Tommaso Grossi, which was "very much a child of its age; a grand historical novel with a patriotic slant".
Its first performance was given at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan on 11 February 1843. Verdi dedicated the score to Maria Luigia, the Habsburg Duchess of Parma, who died a few weeks after the premiere.
In 1847, the opera was significantly revised to become Verdi's first grand opera for performances in French at the Salle Le Peletier of the Paris Opera under the title of Jérusalem.
