After studying saxophone at the Conservatory of Lausanne, where he received a License de Concert degree in 1994, Laurent Estoppey devoted himself entirely to contemporary music. Numerous collaborations with composers have led him to create at least one hundred works.
Now, Estoppey’s musical activity is divided between written music and improvisation. He performs throughout Switzerland, many European countries, as well as Canada, USA, Argentina, Guatemala and South Africa. Estoppey works with many orchestras, has founded several chamber ensembles and has recorded a dozen CDs.
He teaches saxophone, contemporary music and improvisation to students of all ages and levels, from beginners to graduates. He lives between Greensboro, NC and Lausanne, Switzerland.
