First soloist of the Orchestra of the Republican Guard of Paris, Sylvie HUE has pursued parallel studies in music at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris, and in literature at the University of Paris XII.
A student of Guy Deplus and Christian Lardé, she obtained a unanimous First Prize in clarinet in 1987 and two First Prizes in chamber music in 1988. She also received a degree in modern literature in the same year. She studied composition with Jean-Michel Bardez.
First Prize in the International Competition of Clarinet in Japan in 1988, laureate of the International Competition in Prague in 1991, she since has performed in recitals and with orchestras in France and abroad.
Concertos and chamber music pieces have been dedicated to her by notorious composers : Pierre Ancelin, Francine Aubin, Roger Boutry, Graciane Finzi, Armando Ghidoni, Richard Phillips…
Equally active pedagogically, she teaches in the Darius Milhaud Conservatoire in Paris City, and in Orsay Conservatoire, as well as in Senzoku-Gakuen University (Tokyo) as guest-professor. She has been in charge of the woodwinds section of the French Youth National Wind Orchestra.
Imminent musicians recognize in Sylvie HUE an artist in possession of a proven technique and an exceptional sonority which convey a great sensibility in her playing. The critics acknowledge her as “one of our best clarinetists” ( J. Bonnaure, from Répertoire journal ).
