Augustin Dumay (b1949)

French-born Augustin Dumay received his training on the violin mostly within the Franco-Belgian tradition (studying with Charmy and later with Grumiaux), but also experienced something of the Russian (Stolyarsky-Auer) school from Milstein. This mixed heritage is borne out in his playing style which, despite his being dubbed ‘the legitimate heir to the royal Belgian line of […] Ysaÿe, Dubois and Grumiaux’ by The Strad, is of the modern international persuasion rather than exemplifying any particular nationalist school. His career also illustrates clearly how the recordings industry is (and has been since its genesis) an essential partner for any aspiring musician; his two successive long-term contracts with EMI and Deutsche Grammophon each demonstrate a methodical programme of recordings spanning standard salon and concerto repertoire and, in the latter case, promotion of a very successful duo pairing with pianist Maria-João Pires and an award-winning trio with Pires and cellist Jian Wang. In live performance Dumay has appeared with many of the world’s top orchestras and conductors and at numerous festivals. He has also followed the re-emergent practice of directing ensembles from the violin, notably in a set of Mozart concertos with the Salzburg Camerata (1998) and visually documented in Gérard Corbiau’s 2011 film Augustin Dumay—laisser une trace dans le coeur.
