Acclaimed French cellist, gambist, and orchestral director Christophe Coin
specializes in baroque and classical repertoire. He studied cello with André Navarra at the Conservatoire de Paris before going on to specialized studies with Nikolaus Harnoncourt in Vienna and Jordi Savall in Basel. He quickly established a solo career, and in 1984 founded l’Ensemble Mosaïques, and in 1987 le Quatuor Mosaïques. This period-instrument quartet specializes in classical music, with a particular interest in lesser-known composers. Their impressive discography includes works by Haydn, Mozart, Arriaga, Boccherini, Jadin, Beethoven, Schubert, and Mendelssohn, as well as some modern works. Christophe’s own discography encompasses both solo and ensemble repertoire. From 1991 to 2012, Christophe Coin directed l’Ensemble baroque de Limoges. He teaches baroque cello and viola da gamba at his alma maters, the Conservatoire de Paris, and the Schola Cantorum in Basel.
