Pianist, composer, teacher-researcher, arranger, and conductor, Carine Bonnefoy has occupied a consequential and unique place in the French creative jazz landscape since her beginnings in 1993.
First Prize and DFS from the CNSMDP, Doctor of Musicology since 2018, Carine has been teaching jazz writing for several years within different structures: CNSMDP, CRD Cachan, CMA13, CMDL.
In 2007, she was awarded the Django d’Or / SACEM Creation Prize for her album “Outre-Terres” – with 17 musicians and the Métropole Orchestra Philharmonic Orchestra – a flamboyant work that undoubtedly brings Carine Bonnefoy into the very closed circle of the great European composer-arrangers.
She also orchestrated and arranged the original music of Ludovic Bource, and conducted the Metropole Orchestra for the theme of the film “OSS 117, Le Caire Nid d’espions” (Gaumont/Universal).
Her latest album, Today is Tomorrow – Music for Large Ensemble, was released in 2019, and performed again by 17 cream of the crop French jazz and classical musicians.
