Conductor and composer, Gabriel first studied at the Conservatoire de Reims, where he obtained prices for conducting, writing, and piano accompaniment, in parallel with a degree in musicology at the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne.

In 2010, he entered the Conservatoire de Paris and obtained a Master’s degree in music writing with six first prices (harmony, counterpoint, fugues, 20th century writing, analysis and orchestration).

He is also a graduate of the Ecole Normale de Musique of Paris in conducting, and is currently studying at the Lausanne Haute Ecole de Musique, with Aurélien Azan-Zielinski.  

In 2017, he was a finalist in the 55th international competition for young conductors in Besançon.

Gabriel Philippot - Chef d'orchestre

For many years, he has been working with several orchestras such as the Orchestra of the Reims Opera, the Orchestra of Massy Opera, the ensemble Les Apaches, the Victor Hugo Franche-Comté Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Lausanne, the Orchestra Lamoureux or the Choir of Radio France.

In masterclass or as an assistant, he works with Julien Masmondet, François-Xavier Bilger, Dominique Rouits, Lionel Sow, Claire Gibault, Louis Langrée or Adrien Perruchon

Passionate about transmitting and sharing music, he conducts the orchestra Euphony in Reims since its creation in 2012, and he conducted the orchestra Impromptu for 4 years along with Maxime Pascal.

With Euphony, he proposes several projects of musical mediation in high schools of the city and commented concerts.

In 2018, he created the Ensemble Instrumental de Champagne: a variable geometry ensemble, whose project is to offer transcriptions of the major pages of symphonic music or more contemporary pieces, through adaptations for ensemble reduced to one per part. Thus, by freeing itself from the logistical constraints associated with a large symphonic orchestra, this ensemble can easily travel and delocalize the music in all places and for all occasions.

As a composer, he has already signed about fifty pieces, mostly self-edited. He is very fond of the brass family, for which he has composed several concertos or chamber music pieces. He regularly works with soloists from the national orchestras (Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France, Orchestre National de Lyon, Orchestre d’Harmonie de la Garde Républicaine). He has also composed a dozen of stage musics and an opera, Forge!, premiered at the Reims Opera in 2017.
