Since then, she enters Augustin Dumay's class at Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel.
After Long-Thibaud-Crespin competition, her career takes fllight and she gets invited many times to play in Salle Pleyel and Salle Gaveau in addition to many festivals like Colmar, Sully sur Loire, Pablo Casals in Prades as well as in Guadeloupe and in Greece. She is benifiting from Fondation SAFRAN and Fondation Banque Populaire, she plays on a magnificent violin made by Tommaso Balestrieri in 1756 and lent by Zilber-Vatelot-Rampal Association.
In November 2017, for the Chineese public, Hildegarde Fesneau and her duet partner, the pianist Antoine De Grolée will perform on tour in the most beautiful concert halls in China. Hildegarde created a project of an unprecedented recording of the 25 caprices of Paganini (reputed to be the most difficult for violinists) by proposing not only a simple CD but also and above all a professional video. Recording the 25 caprices of Paganini is a challenge for a violinist and a very limited number of violinists have played them all. Enjoy the first of the 25 here!
