Ève-Marie Caravassilis


Member since 2013

‘When I was a chamber musician, I would spend my evenings with friends watching movies and listening to the soundtracks. When one of them told me about the LSO auditions, knowing I had been a huge admirer for years, my first thought was that I couldn’t dream of it. But I wouldn’t forgive myself if I didn’t give it a try …’

French-Guadeloupean-Greek cellist Ève-Marie Caravassilis became a member of the LSO in 2013, following seven years with the acclaimed French ensemble and BBC New Generation Artists Quatuor PSOPHOS, collaborating with renowned artists as Alina Ibragimova, Imogen Cooper, Renaud & Gautier Capucon, and the Ebene Quartet. She regularly performs as Guest Principal with numerous orchestras, including the English National Opera and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

Ève-Marie studied with Philippe Muller at the Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris and Jens Peter Maintz at the Universität der Künste in Berlin, obtaining the highest distinctions for her Master and KonzertExam recitals. During her studies, she took part in masterclasses with Mstislav Rostropovitch, Yo-Yo Ma, David Geringas and Jerome Pernoo.

She plays an anonymous French 19th-century cello, generously entrusted to her by the Fonds Instrumental Francais.
