Jonas Vitaud has played with the orchestras of Mulhouse, Cannes, Toulouse, the Orchestre des Pays de Savoie, Orchestre Philharmonique de Moravie, Sinfonia Varsovia, Munich Radio Orchestra, and the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra.
He especially loves chamber music, and performs with artists including sopranos Karine Deshayes, Sumi Hwang and Yumiko Tanimura, cellists Victor Julien-Laferrière and Christian-Pierre La Marca, violist Adrien La Marca, pianist Adam Laloum, clarinetist Raphaël Sévère, violinist Mi-Sa Yang, the Zaïde Quartet, and many more.
He also takes a keen interest in contemporary music, and has worked with master composers such as Henri Dutilleux, Thierry Escaich, György Kurtag, Philippe Hersant and Yann Robin. Jonas Vitaud sees these partnerships, especially those that happen during the Musique sur Ciel string instrument festival, as opportunities to discover the variety of music being created today, and develop his musical imagination.
In 2019, his recordings of his performances were released by MIRARE and ALPHA CLASSICS in the form of two albums, one with violinist Mi-Sa Yang featuring MOZART sonatas, and the other a Russian repertoire, performed with cellist Victor Julien-Laferrière.
To mark Debussy’s centenary in 2018, Jonas Vitaud released a double album with MIRARE containing pieces from the composer’s early work; an original and ambitious achievement that spotlighted some of the composer’s lesser-known creations. He has also performed in many tribute concerts. In March 2016, Jonas Vitaud released a Tchaikovsky recording with MIRARE – Les Saisons et la Grande Sonate opus 37, which earned a 5 from Diapason.
His solo album, given over to compositions by Henri Dutilleux and Franz Liszt and released by NoMadMusic has brought him widespread success, and he received the GRAND PRIX SOLISTE INSTRUMENTAL from the Académie Charles Cros (CHOC CLASSICA. 5 from DIAPASON). He performed many tributes to Henri Dutilleux during the year of his centenary in 2016 at the Limoges and Vichy opera houses, as well as the Scènes Nationales Arras-Douai, and in London.
Jonas Vitaud has been teaching at the CNSM in Paris since 2013, and is an assistant professor for Marie-Josèphe Jude’s piano class. He is also an associate artist with the Singer-Polignac Foundation.
