François Gallon

François Gallon took his first lessons in playing cello at the age of seven at the Caen Conservatoire, before moving on for two years to Véronique Marin’s class at the Rueil-Mailmaison conservatoire. A child from a family of musicians playing music from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century, it was inevitable that he opted for the Baroque cello and performance of Early Music on historical instruments. He studied first at the Academy of Early Music in Lisieux and with Emmanual Balssa at the Erik Satie Conservatoire in Paris, then completed his Bachelor degree at the Paris National Supérieur Conservatoire with the highest distinction. Since then he can be heard regularly in France and Europe as a chamber musician, continuo and tutti player in famous Baroque ensembles and orchestras, including the Ensemble Correspondances (Sébastien Daucé), Capriccio Stravagante (Skip Sempé), Le Poème Harmonique (Vincent Dumestre), La Symphonie du Marais (Hugo Reyne), das Galilei Consort (Benjamin Chénier), the Ensemble Baroque Atlantique (Guillaume Rebinguet Sudre), Les Nouveaux Caractères (Sébastien d’Hérin, et al.
