Music runs in the Sluchin family and Naaman quite naturally chose to devote himself to the violin. His studies and artistic career have been guided by a passion for novelty and eclecticism: his technique owes to the Russian school, the American school (through his training at Bloomington and at the Julliard School) as well as to the famous Franco-Belgian school that followed Eugène Ysaye’s teaching. He is also a graduate of Basel’s Schola Cantorum in baroque violin.

 

For seven years he was a member of the Diotima quartet, performed around the world in prestigious halls and festivals, and recorded award-winning CDs, including Musique américaine (Reich, Crumb, and Barber) and Quatuors de Janáček (Diapasons d'Or de l'année, Choc de Classica). For five years, Naaman also performed in Haim, à la lumière d'un violon, sharing the stage with actors Anouk Grinberg, Natacha Régnier and Mélanie Doutey at the salle Gaveau, and on French and European tours.

 

Naaman’s repertoire keeps evolving thanks to his involvement with different chamber music groups, such as the Ensemble Talisma with Piet Kuijken et Amy Norrington and the Kitgut Quartet, a period instrument string quartet in which he plays with Amandine Beyer. He is also solo violinist for Emmanuel Krivine’s Chambre Philharmonique orchestra, performs with the Cairn ensemble, and plays alongside Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s Rosas dance company in a show entitled Achterland and choreographed around Ysaye’s violin sonatas.

 

Since 2010, Naaman Sluchin also teaches at Brussels’ Royal Conservatory. Depending on the repertoire (and whims), he alternates between playing on a 1725 Carlo Antonio Tononi violin and a 2008 american violin of John Young.
