Laëtitia Brault

Born in 1989, Laëtitia Brault began her musical apprenticeship with the piano before discovering the flute which would very quickly become her instrument of choice. Having grown up in the tradition of the French Flute School, she joined the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (CNSMDP) in the flute class of Pierre-Yves Artaud and Florence Souchard-Delépine, studied piccolo with Pierre Dumail and chamber music with Michel Moraguès and David Walter. In 2015, she obtained her Instrumental Master there with the mention Très Bien in Philippe Bernold's class.

Having received the advice of masters such as Vincent Lucas, Magali Mosnier, Karl-Heinz Schütz and Emmanuel Pahud, she was spotted during her concert at the Fourth French Flute Convention by Sir James Galway.

Passionate about the orchestra, she is regularly invited to perform in renowned orchestras, including the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Flemish Opera, the Orchestre de Paris ... In 2011, she was one of the five flautists recruited from around the world to join the prestigious International Orchestral Academy of the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival (Germany) under the direction of Conductor Christoph Eschenbach.

Since 2013, she has held the position of co-soloist flautist at the Opéra Royal de Wallonie in Liège, under the baton of Maestro Paolo Arrivabeni, Speranza Scappucci and Gianpaolo Bizanti. His various collaborations have allowed him to work with chefs such as Jesus Lopez Cobos, Guennadi Rojdestvenski, Ion Marin, Michel Plasson, Jonathan Nott, Alain Altinoglu, Frédéric Chaslin, Michele Mariotti, Christoph Eschenbach ..., and have opened the doors to him prestigious venues: Salle Pleyel, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Bozar in Brussels, Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Festspielhaus in Salzburg or the Operas in Kiel, Mascat and Tel Aviv. She also shares the stage with world-renowned soloists, such as flautist Hélène Boulègue or singers Jodie Devos, Marc Laho and Lionel Lhote, as well as the American diva Nadine Sierra.

A sought-after chamber music partner, her activities have led her to perform in groups such as the Oxalys ensemble and the Toulouse Chamber Orchestra, and in a wind quintet that she founded with the Italian clarinetist Giovanni Punzi and bringing together Emilien Lefevre (oboe), Thomas Quinquenel (bassoon) and Clément Charpentier-Leroy (horn).

Also keen on pedagogy, at the age of 22 she joined Teaching Training at the CNSM in Paris and four years later obtained a Master of Pedagogy coupled with the Certificate of Aptitude of Teacher of Flute and Chamber Music. She is regularly invited to give master classes, mainly in France and Belgium, but also in Asia (Taiwan). 

Finally, having at hart to share the lyrical repertoire which is so dear to her, she founded La Rentrée Littéraire du Flûtiste with her husband, the flautist Jean-Christophe Maltot. Together they arrange, compose, write the prefaces, produce, and play many fantaisies on operas intended for professionals flautists as well as arrangements of symphonic or lyrical works intended for other types of ensembles (duet for clarinet and piano, flutes ensemble or wind quintet and piano). Three of their fantaisies are already available from Klarthe Editions : the Fantaisie sur Tosca, the Western Flute Suite (based on the Fanciùlla del West) and the Fantaisie sur Madame Butterfly written by Puccini. 

Her commitment to composers makes her the dedicatee of works intended for her instrument and composed by pianists Guillaume Prod'homme, Pierre-Alain Volondat (Essors) and flautist Jean-Christophe Maltot (Fantaisie sur la Bohème de Puccini).
