Paul Wiener

Paul Wiener was born in 2001 in a family of French musician. Trying to pursue the inheritance of his great great grandfather the composer and pianist Jean Wiener, he began to learn music first in violin with his mother Cécile Wiener in Sainte-Genevieve-des-Bois.
After a year with Jacques Bonvallet at the CRD of Chartres, he was accepted in 2016 at the CRR of Paris, in the Stéphanie Moraly's violin class. In 2018, she advised Paul Wiener to begin viola's studies. That's why he integrated the Sébastien Luigi Levy's class. His new teacher warned him: "You will not be able to get rid of the C string... "and he was right!
Without banning his former instrument, Paul Wiener took his great grandfather's viola, and got the second price of the "Jeunes Altistes" competition in 2019. He was accepted at the " Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris " in 2020, with David Gaillard while the same year in violin he was accepted in the preparatory cursus of the CRR of Paris, after being graduated of the DEM ("Diplôme d'Etudes Musicales").
He has participated in various musical projects such as the "Berlioz Project" (2019), the "Folles Journées" (2020 - 2021), "A Day with the Paris Orchestra" (2021) or being musician in the "Ensemble Orchestral Clair de Lune" (2019-2020-2021), the "Orchestre Français des Jeunes", or the “Orchestre National de France”.
This year, Paul Wiener is integrating the DE (State's Diplome) cursus in the CNSM of Paris, in order obtain a viola's teacher's licence.
