Florence Malgoire baroque violin

Florence Malgoire is one of today’s most sought-after and most highly-acclaimed Baroque violinists. She began her career in La Grande Ecurie et la Chambre du Roy founded and conducted by her late father, Jean-Claude Malgoire and has since appeared in the ranks of such ensembles as Christopher Rousset’s Les Talens Lyriques, Philippe Herreweghe’s La Chapelle Royale and William Christie’s Les Arts Florissants. With her own Les Dominos she has charted formations from trio to orchestra. She has a considerable discography and teaches all over the world. “She plays as she breathes,” is how one critic described her performance. Her programme at BRQ Vantaa focuses on Bach and his predecessors. In addition to works by Bach for solo violin, it will include items by Nicola Matteis, an Italian who lived in London, the Salzburg maestro Heinrich Ignaz Biber, and the Italian virtuoso Giuseppe Tartini.
