Lucienne Renaudin Vary

Lucienne Renaudin Vary 1 Simon Fowler

“To have the kind of maturity and insight Lucienne has as a trumpet player, you would have to be 40 years old.” – Philippe Duchemin (jazz pianist)

Lucienne Renaudin Vary is a natural on the trumpet. When she was 11, for instance, she won the Selmer-Le Parnasse competition. Since then, she has won first prize at every competition she has entered, and in 2016, at the age of 17, she won the Victoire de la Musique Classique as a solo revelation.

Anyone meeting Lucienne sees an athletic teenager, who comes across as bashful and quiet. But appearances are deceptive. When she plays, she blossoms completely and enchants and moves everyone. In both classical and jazz, she feels like a fish in the water.
