Amandine Beyer

Director & Violin Soloist


Amandine BeyerInternationally renowned baroque violinist Amandine Beyer has established herself as a leading interpreter of baroque violin repertoire. Her 2012 recording of the Sonatas and Partitas by JS Bach has attracted huge critical acclaim internationally, being awarded Diapason d’or de l’année, Choc de Classica de l’année, Editor’s Choice for Gramophone, Prix Academie Charles Cros, and Excepcional by Scherzo. She continues to perform these works by Bach all round Europe, as part of an interdisciplinary stage show "Partita 2", choreographed and danced by Anne Theresa de Keersmaeker and Boris Charmatz. Amandine plays regularly in the most important halls and baroque festivals worldwide – for example in Paris, Sablé, Antwerp, Innsbruck, Vienna and London. She divides her time between the different ensembles of which she is a member: les Cornets Noirs, duos with Pierre Hantai, Kristian Bezuidenhout and Laurence Beyer and her own ensemble, Gli Incogniti, whose CDs devoted to Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Corelli's Concerti Grossi have been welcomed by international critics as new highlights in the performance of this repertoire. She is passionate about teaching the next generation of baroque musicians, and she gives lessons at ESMAE in Porto, Portugal, as well as masterclasses in her native France and as far afield as Taiwan, Brazil, USA and Canada; since 2010 she has taught baroque violin at Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland. Amandine will work with the European Union Baroque Orchestra for the first time in 2018, as part of the GOfBaroque project.
