"Playing without an audience drives you crazy."
Last summer, five young „Jeunes Etoiles“ artists had the chance to play for a large audience having their concerts streamed live at Gstaad Digital Festival. In the voting that followed, their fans were able to cast their vote online at Gstaad Digital Festival. The 22-year-old violinist Nathan Mierdl received most votes in our “Jeunes Étoiles”- voting.
Because Covid makes it impossible to travel to Paris right now, we’ve had a chat with Nathan on Zoom. Watch here how he reacts to the news of winning the voting and learn more about his beginnings in Frankfurt… and his future plans!
Born in 1998 in Frankfurt am Main, Nathan Mierdl studied in his hometown, then in Dijon, Boulogne-Billancourt and Paris. In 2018, he obtained his concert master’s degree in Roland Daugareil’s class at the CNSM and was hired the same year as co-violin solo by the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra. 2018 also marked his highly acclaimed performance at the Menuhin Competition in Geneva, where he won no less than four prizes and was lent a magnificent 1713 Stradivarius.
