Cellist Pierre Doumenge enjoys a busy career divided between solo work, chamber music and teaching. From 2001 to 2005 he was a member of the Dante String Quartet performing at major venues in Europe and making regular radio and commercial recordings. Pierre has also worked as guest principal cellist of the English Chamber Orchestra, the London Chamber Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. 

Passionately fond of chamber music, Pierre regularly explores and performs the repertoire with artists such as Pascal Rogé, Lars Vogt, Daniel Hope, Carolin Widmann, Pekka Kuusisto, Lawrence Power, the Belcea and Allegri Quartets and the Nash Ensemble. He has appeared at many international festivals (Aldeburgh, Bath, Cheltenham, Kuhmo, Bucharest, La Hague, Nuremberg, Bergstaden, Hindsgalv) and frequently attends the Open Chamber Music sessions at IMS Prussia Cove in Cornwall, joining their tour of England in 2003. Pierre is also a regular performer at the Joy of Music Festival in Hong Kong. He has recorded for the Dutton, Meridian and Hyperion labels to great critical acclaim. In 2008 he was chosen to be the official cellist of the Menuhin International Violin Competition, playing the Ravel Sonata with the nine semi-finalists.  

Pierre taught cello and chamber music at the Yehudi Menuhin School from 2003-2009 and is a cello professor at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. He gives regular masterclasses at the Oxford Cello School, the International Cello Courses UK, the Violoncello Society of London, the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, the West Helsinki Music Institute, the Conservatoire Royal de Mons and the Szymon Goldberg Seminars in Toyama (Japan).
