François Fernandez - Baroque violin 

François Fernandez, whose parents were both musicians (Jazz and Classic), was born in Rouen in 1960.

While pursuing classic modern violin studies, he took up the baroque violin at the age of 11.

He studied with Sigiswald Kuijken in The Hague (Soloist Diploma, Royal Conservatory 1980) and soon became his teacher’s closest collaborator.

After entering aged 17, he became the concertmaster of La Petite Bande in 1986.

At the same time, he worked with the best baroque orchestras of the epoch, most often as leader or soloist: The Orchestra of the 18th Century (Frans Brüggen), La Chapelle Royale (Philippe Herreweghe), Melante 81 (Bob van Asperen) and Les Arts Florissants (William Christie).

For the last 20 years, François Fernandez has devoted himself to chamber music.

Not only as a violinist but also on violino piccolo, viola, viola d’amore, viola da gamba and violoncello da spalla.

As a chamber musician, he has participated worldwide at the most important festivals with the Ricercar Consort, the Kuijken brothers, the Hantaï brothers, Ryo Terakado, Glen Wilson, Yves Rechstainer, Marcel Ponseele, Boyan Vodénitcharov, Benjamin Alard, Enrico Gatti, Rainer Zipperling, Sophie Gent, and many other prominent musicians.
