MARC GRAUWELS

The Belgian virtuoso flautist Marc Grauwels made his orchestral début at the age of nineteen with the Flemish Opera. In 1976 he joined the orchestra of the Théâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels as a piccolo player, leaving in 1978 to take up the position of principal flautist in the Belgian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra, which he held over the following ten years, while serving in 1986 in the same position in Carlo Maria Giulini’s World Orchestra.

In 1987 he embarked fully on a career as a soloist, while teaching at the Brussels Royal Conservatoire for some fifteen years. He is now Professor at the Mons Royal Conservatoire.

His eclecticism as an international soloist has inspired a lot of composers from all over the world who wrote especially for him or associated him to the first performance of their creations. In this way, in 1985, he played in duo with the guitarist Guy Lukowski the first performance of the famous and well-known History of the Tango from Astor Piazzolla and he also participated to the first recording of this work. He also participated to the creation of the Cantate for Europe from Ennio Morricone. More recently, the Greek composer Yannis Markopoulos wrote for him his new concerto for flute that was played as one of the opening musics for the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004. For several years, Marc Grauwels has also been an “Endorser” for the well-known Japanese flute maker, Miyazawa.
