Christophe Coin

Christophe Coin, born in Caen (Normandy), studied in his native city with Jacques Ripoche, then in Paris with André Navarra. He was a disciple of Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Jordi Savall, with whom he worked for several years as a member of Hespèrion XX. As a soloist he is regularly invited to appear with the most prestiguous Early Music ensembles, such as Concentus Musicus Wien, the Academy of Ancient Music, and Il Giardino Armonico. He was artistic director of Ensemble Baroque de Limoges for 20 years, winning recognition for instance for its recordings of Bach cantatas. In 1984 he founded the Quatuor Mosaïques, which he has since led. Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert are among their main repertoire; their recordings repeatedly received the prestigious Gramophone Awards. Christophe Coin taught cello and viola da gamba at Schola Cantorum in Basel and at the Paris Conservatory. As a soloist and as a conductor he has performed in many concerts around the globe.
