Stéphanie Moraly was born in Paris in 1980. She began playing the violin at the age of six and won her first competition as a ten-year-old child prodigy. The following year she gave her first recital, won the first prize at the Concours Jeunes Prodiges Mozart and appeared as a soloist in Prague and at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and the Châtelet Theatre in Paris. After becoming a student at the Paris Conservatoire while still only sixteen, she was awarded a first prize at the age of nineteen and then went on to a period of advanced study with Michèle Auclair at the New England Conservatory in Boston.

Stéphanie has won many awards from international competitions and foundations (1st Prize Vilnius Atzalina Competition 1998, Fulbright awardee 2000 & 2001, 3rd Prize California Young Artists Competition 2000, 1st Prize Rome Festival Competition 2002...). She has given solo performances in France, Italy, the United States, and in Lithuania and Brazil with orchestras including the Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, the Orchestre des Pays de Savoie and the Lithuanian National Orchestra.

With a view to broadening her knowledge and experience, Stéphanie has completed a PhD in musicology at the Sorbonne University in Paris and obtained her doctorate with distinction for her thesis on the French violin and piano sonata. She has also been invited to take part in international conferences and has already had several articles published.

Being passionate about sonata, Stéphanie released in 2010 the CD “The Meeting of the Waters”, Olivier Greif’s complete works for violin and piano, with pianist Romain David (Triton label). This recording won high critical acclaim (5 Diapasons), bringing to light the Moraly-David duo, that has been extensively performing ever since. Stéphanie is also first violin of the Syntonia Quintet, presently in residence at the Singer-Polignac Foundation in Paris. Syntonia has given concerts and prestigious festivals and concert halls, and was often broadcast by France Musique, Radio Classique, and Arte Live Web. Their last recording, “Dvorak/Suk : Piano Quintets”, was awarded 5 Diapasons.

Stéphanie has also received early recognition as an outstanding teacher, becoming Michèle Auclair’s assistant in Boston when still only twenty. She holds the coveted French Certificat d’aptitude for teaching, giving lessons and masterclasses in France, the United States, Canada and Brazil. After teaching over 9 years long at Orléans Conservatoire, she is currently Professor at Paris CRR and Pôle Supérieur de Paris Boulogne-Billancourt (PSPBB).

In 2015, she performed the world premiere of « Un Poème », rhapsodie for violin and orchestra by Benoît Menut, as well as Kurt Weill’s violin concerto with wind orchestra.
