About the artists:

Born in 1995, Clarisse Dalles started studying music at the Regional Conservatory Versailles by learning piano. At the age of 15, she discovered singing when joining the Maîtrise de Radio France where she sang under such conductors as Mikko Franck, Christoph Eschenbach, Daniele Gatti, René Jacobs, Sofi Jeannin and Christian Järvi. At the age of 18 she continued her studies at the Department for Young Singers of the Regional Conservatory of Paris in Melanie Jackson’s class. There she had the opportunity to sing under the direction of Henri Chalet, Geoffroy Jourdain, Laurence Equilbey and Nathalie Stutzmann. In June 2017, she obtained her diploma and was accepted at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance of Paris (CNSMDP) where she still studies with vocal coach Valérie Guillorit, as well as at the Philippe Jarrousky’s Music Academy.

In 2015, she made her operatic debut as Cecilia in Antonio Caldara’s Il Giuoco del Quadriglio, under the direction of Jérôme Corréas, and staged by Mireille Laroche at the Pénich’Opéra. She then sang in Iphigénie en Tauride by Christoph Willibald von Gluck with the Young artist programme of the Paris Opera (soloist of the Young Choir of Paris) at the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines Theater, as well as in the creation of Stéphane Michaka’s Alice et Merveilles with the Orchester National de France at the Auditorium of Radio France.

She was also asked to participate in numerous concerts and recitals, notably with Philippe Jarrousky as part of his academy, accompanied by the Artaserse ensemble and the Appassionato ensemble directed by Mathieu Herzog. She also sang in October 2017 in recital on France Musique in the show Gaëlle le Gallic Generation young performers.

During the 2018/2019 season, she takes the part of Veronique, in the Opérette of the same name by André Messager, directed by Vincent Vittoz at the Théâtre de Bayonne at the Ravel Festival. Then she will for a tour in different theaters in France. During this same season she is also Callisto in Giove in Argo by Antonio Lotti at the Grand Palais in Paris, under the direction of Leonardo Garcia Alarcon. She was recently invited by the New Aquitaine Chamber Orchestra to sing Gustav Mahler’s 4th symphony at the Grand Théâtre de Poitiers and the Philharmonie de Paris.

Clarisse is also passionate about lied and French melody, a repertoire which she perfected with pianists Anne Le Bozec, and Jeff Cohen. She recently won the Young Hope Award, awarded by the French Center for Lyric Promotion at the International Lieder and Melodies Competition in Gordes.



Traveller, entrepreneur, explorer, Gauthier Herrmann is not your typical musician. Chamber musician, Artistic Director of Artie’s, winner of the International competitions of Heerlen, Firenze, Illzach, Paris. A passionate cello player with a focus on chamber music, founder and director of “Artie’s”, Gauthier has travelled the world for ten years in the company of his family and Artie’s joyful musicians ; artists united by their repertoire and their loyalty to each other.

His focus and determination have led him to be held in high regard on the classical musical circuit.  He has received high awards (with the Trio con Fuoco) and acclaim at the Florence, Heerlen, Illzach, Vibrarte and Fnapec music competitions and he is highly respected by leading musicians. In 2001, Gauthier Herrmann discovered India. This trip gave birth to the Artie’s adventure, a slightly crazy project summed up by two words at the heart of modern day classical music : family and enterprise.

Artie’s Festival’s development is thanks to an entrepreneur who, wanting to set-up a series of music concerts, sold his first cello, to make possible the dream of bringing together two worlds previously seen as incompatible: classical music and India. Ten years, 21 editions, 14 cities, 58 musicians, 65 trips and more than 40,000 spectators later, chamber music has found a home in India. Aside from India, Artie’s has played in China, Saudi Arabia, Kuweit, Vietnam, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Nepal and in Europe of course…




A Prize winner of the prestigious Marguerite Long – Jacques Thibaud competition in 2010, Mathilde Borsarello Herrmann puts her talent at the service of music in all its forms. Her true mother tongue … Music! A total immersion from childhood, a vocation of course, but above all a passion …

Violin, piano, voice, sonata, trio, quartet, teaching, orchestra, it is with appetite that she devours a wide repertoire ranging from J S Bach to Arvo Pärt. From her beginnings at the CNR in Paris to her two graduate degrees at the CNSMDP, she has a deep appreciation for those who have shaped her musical identity, Suzanne Gessner, Patrice Fontanarosa, Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Roland Daugareil in violin as well as Paul Boufil, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Alain Meunier, Maurice Bourgue and Marc Coppey in chamber music. Her passion for chamber music led her to perform with partners such as Gautier Capuçon, Gérard Caussé, the Ebène quartet, Roland Daugareil, Henri Demarquette, Romain Descharmes, Olivier Patey, Shani Diluka …

With the perfectionism that characterizes her, Mathilde wanted to explore in depth the repertoire of the piano trio by creating in 2002 the Trio Estampe with pianist Claudine Simon and cellist Caroline Boita. Supported by the Meyer Foundation, they record a CD “young soloist” in 2010, then in 2012 an album around the trio opus 5 of Max Bruch for the label Artie’s Records, distribution Harmonia Mundi.

For this insatiable music, to deprive oneself of the symphonic repertoire was unthinkable. Mathilde was the holder of the Orchestre National de France from 2007 to 2017 under the direction of Maestro Daniele Gatti. During these 8 years in this formation, she had the opportunity to play in the most prestigious halls (Amsterdam, London, New York, Vienna …) and to be directed by, among others, Maestros Masur, Muti, Ozawa, Järvi, Sokhiev, Bychkov, Haitink in repertoire as varied as they are complete. Her violin, by the Italian luthier Riccardo Genovese (1931), follows in all her adventures.



Trained in Lille, then at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel (Belgium) by Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden and at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance of Paris, Jean-Michel Dayez thrives today on stage, solo or in chamber music. Winner of the Anvers International Competition, Meyer and Emile Bernheim Foundations, he has since be

en involved in numerous musical projects. He is the pianist of the Trio Leos founded in 2013 with which he currently recorded the complete trios of Beethoven (first volume published by Klarthe). Member of the music collective Artie’s, he multiplies the meetings for more and more joys and musical adventures with concerts that lead him around the world.

Jean-Michel Dayez recorded with Xavier Gagnepain the complete music for cello and piano by Fauré (zig-zag territories), the complete sonatas for cello and piano of Beethoven with Nicolas Deletaille (contréclisse), a monographic disc of composer Vincent Paulet (hortus), a record of melodies and songs with Philippe Balloy. Holder of the Certificate of Aptitude, he teaches today in Lille, at the Superior School of Arts of Mons (Belgium), and for more than ten years every summer at the festival academy Les Arcs.
