Nathalie Forget (Ondes Martenot)

Nathalie Forget was unanimously awarded the First Prize in ondes Martenot at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris, where she studied under Valérie Hartmann-Claverie. She also has Master’s degrees in musical philosophy, with a focus on Olivier Messiaen, and in visual arts (photography).

She has played all across Europe, as well as in the United States and Mexico, with leading conductors and ensembles including Hans Zender, Peter Rundel, Ilan Volkov, Daniel Kawka, Simone Young, Sylvain Cambreling, Heinz Holliger, Kent Nagano, Reinbert de Leeuw, Pierre Boulez, Myung-Whun Chung, the London Sinfonietta, the Orchestra of Gulbenkian Foundation, the Nederlandse Opera, the NDR-Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, the Rai National Symphony Orchestra, the OCBA of Mexico, the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden and Freiburg, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France, and others.

Festival appearances include the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland, the Biennale of Bern, the Festival Messiaen au pays de La Meije, and several appearances at the BBC Proms in London.

She is an interpreter of major works for ondes (Messiaen, Honegger, Milhaud, Varèse, Murail, Jolivet, Koechlin, Scelsi…); she is also very invested in contemporary music, improvisation, and rock music (Ensemble ItinéraireLes Musiques à Ouïr, collectif Warn!ngFaustRadioheadUlan Bator...) and in premiering radical new repertoire for the instrument.

In addition, she combines ondes Martenot with contemporary art in performances and shows with sculptures, voices, photographs and projections; she questions the notions of Utopia, vibrant and revealing animalism, love, torture, and indifference.

Her recordings include the DVD of Olivier Messiaen’s opera, Saint François d’Assise, conducted by Ingo Metzmacher and staged by Pierre Audi.

Since 2016 she is ondes Martenot professor at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris.
