Hélène Boulègue

flute, piccolo

Recently crowned with the first prize of the internationally renowned Kobe Flute Competition, Hélène Boulègue is one of the new emergent flutists of her generation.

Born in France, she started playing the flute at the age of seven. After having completed the musical cursus of her hometown conservatory, she auditioned first for the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris, where she studied for two years with Vincent Lucas. She then got into the very prestigious Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris in the class of Pierre-Yves Artaud and Florence Souchard-Delépine. Barely six months after having begun studying there for her Bachelor, she won the job at the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, when she had not yet turned twenty. 

She finished her Bachelor in Paris while working full-time at the orchestra and decided to further her musical knowledge and flutisti skills. To that end, and in order to gain new perspectives, she chose to study with Renate Greiss-Armin at the Hochschule für Musik in Karlsruhe, Germany. There, she deepened her understanding of music and at the end of 2015 she had completed her Master's degree and won the Second prize at the International Prag Spring Competition.

Hélène has been a very sought after flutist and piccolist in these last past years, and she has been invited to play in orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Orchestre de Paris.

She is also an accomplished chamber musician and part of the ILCODEMA Trio, and a recognized pedagogue who has been regularly working with schools and children both as a musician and as a musical educator.

Having been taught by worldwide reknown French masters as well as having soaked up German culture and played for a long time in a multicultural orchestra, Hélène Boulègue is not only a figurehead of the French flute school, but she is also a musician benefiting from very diverse european influences, which makes her playing so different and colourful.
