Born in 1988, Elisa Huteau began studying music under Philippe Bary. She earned a D.E.M. (diploma of musical studies) under the guidance of Daniel Raclot.
Advanced level work with Hélène Dautry preceded her admittance to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris, where she attended the classes of Jérôme Pernoo and Cyrille Lacrouts.
She finished the master programme there in 2012 and graduated with honours. In 2011, she founded the trio Norma with violinist Thibaut Maudry and pianist Gwendal Giguelay. They spent three years in the Ysaye
Quartet's class and Claire Désert invited them as an ensemble in residence to the 2013 Roqued'Anthéron Festival.
They also participated in two master classes at the Académie de Villecroze along with Menahem Pressler and Ferenc Rados.
A year ago she joined Maxime Pascal’ group Le Balcon. She and Pascal created the show De quoi j'ai l'air with soprano Julie Fuchs as well as with
the Ensemble 2e2m; Pierre Roullier conducted. Elisa Huteau recently joined AlmaViva, a changeable chamber music ensemble specialized in the classical and contemporary repertoire of the Americas, particularly Latin
America's. As a member of Radio France's Philharmonic orchestra from 2010 to 2011, she has been regularly invited to play with the Orchestre de
l'Opéra de Paris, the Orchestre d'Auvergne, and the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse.
Elisa Huteau plays an anonymously-made, Flemish cello from 1695 with a bow by Dominique Peccate, both loaned by the Fonds Instrumental Français.
