Biography

Benjamin Glorieux is a cellist, conductor and composer. As a youngster, and before realizing that he would become a professional musician, he composed 'songs' for a theatre-group he was a member of, worked with choreographers and actors of his hometown as an improvising cellist, and spent hours and hours in his room during private jam-sessions, instead of studying for school or practicing his cello. Now, supported by a solid studying parcours in Brussels, Genève, Köln and the Chapelle Queen Elisabeth, nothing has changed. Instead the love for composers and compositions, the search for sounds and existing or unknown repertoire has only grown to a degree that has made old and contemporary classical music Benjamin's most inspiring incentive. For example, he plays Debussy on gut-strings, performs Brian Ferneyhough's Time and Motion Study with electronics of the 70's, gives regular concerts of the cycle of Bach cello Suites and is a musical partner of jazz-groups such as Rembrandt Frerichs Trio. As a pedagogue, he works regularly with MATRIX Leuven and was invited by Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen as a cello-teacher for specialization in contemporary repertoire.
