Following studies at the CRR de Boulogne, and then at the CNSMD de Lyon, Marie Vermeulin underwent further training with Lazar Berman and Roger Muraro. She won several prizes at international competitions: 1st Prize at the Tournoi International de Musique (Italy, 2004), 2nd Prize at the International Maria Canals Competition (Barcelona, 2006), and 2nd Prize at the Concours International Olivier Messiaen (Paris, 2007).
Recognized early on for her interpretations of the music of Olivier Messiaen, for which she received the mentorship of Roger Muraro, she has interpreted a large portion of his repertoire and dedicated several lectures and masterclasses to his work. Her first recording was consecrated to Olivier Messiaen, released in 2013 for Paraty, and widely acclaimed by critics, receiving an FFFF from Télérama. Her second disk, released in 2016 and dedicated to Debussy for the label Printemps des Arts de Monte Carlo also received unanimous reviews from critics (**** from Classica, Diapason, Resmusica, Pianiste). This third opus, centered around the Romantic period, confirms the breadth of musical expertise that Marie Vermeulin possesses.
Marie Vermeulin’s great artistic maturity and rich sound-world have made her a very appreciated interpreter by audiences.
She has been invited by major festivals and concert halls in France (Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Philharmonie, Opéra de Paris, Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, Centre Pompidou-Metz, Opéra de Limoges, festival Messiaen au pays de la Meije, etc.), as well as internationally (Spain, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, USA, China, Lebanon, South-East Asia…).
She regularly appears with orchestras, and has collaborated with numerous well-known conductors such as Darrel Ang, Paul Goodwin, Debora Waldman, Pavel Berman, Walid Moussallem, Salvator Brotons, and Pierre Boulez.
Marie Vermuelin is supported by several foundations (Fondation Safran pour la musique, Mécénat musical Société Générale) and by the Institut français for international tours. In November 2014, her lifetime acheivements were rewarded by the Académie des Beaux-Art, and with the Prix d’Interprétation from Fondation Simon et Cino Del Duca, under the banner of the Institut de France.
