Roland Dyens in the skaï

Jean-Marc Zvellenreuther


Curious and passionate, Jean-Marc Zvellenreuther explores the musical universe in all its diversity. Guitarist, teacher, conductor… he keeps learning through contact with his students and also with musicians and artists from various backgrounds.

Contemporary music, jazz and improvisation, transcription, opera and orchestra, he gets involved in a lot of projects, always with the same artistical level of requirement. He also takes a modern look at the repertoire and at the form of the concert, with new technologies – with for instance his project iberialbeniz.

Close to today’s composers, he created more than thirty new solo works, within the Trio Polycordes and the ensemble Ars nova.

Disciple of Alberto Ponce, Jean-Marc Zvellenreuther was his assistant at the Conservatoire de Paris for seven years. The Spanish master gave him on the secrets of his art, perpetuating the tradition of Tarrega and Emilio Pujol.

Holder of a guitar class at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Boulogne-Billancourt, Jean-Marc Zvellenreuther was the first guitarist to teach the instrument didactics at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris’s department of pedagogy. He is currently professor-assistant (Roland Dyens’s class) at this institution and also teaches at the Pôle supérieur d’enseignement artistique Paris Boulogne-Billancourt.

Jean-Marc Zvellenreuther plays in the greatest symphonic ensembles and in the main opera houses. He knows the orchestra from the inside, and is naturally interested in direction. Trained by Nicolas Brochot, he is invited to conduct orchestra sessions with the students of the Pôle d’enseignement supérieur de la musique en Seine–Saint-Denis Île-de-France, especially in the modern and contemporary repertoire. He also directs the students of the Conservatoire de Paris, and various concerts and projects.
