Trio PasquierFeb. 6, 2005

Régis Pasquier - violin     Bruno Pasquier - viola
Roland Pidoux - cello

The Pasquier brothers and Roland Pidoux have known each other since their student days at the National Conservatory of Music in Paris, where each graduated with top honours and where they now teach. As a trio they have toured Europe and the Americas to critical acclaim; at the same time each has a major solo career. Violinist Régis Pasquier’s awards include the Prix de l’Académie du Disque Français, the Georges Enesco and the Charles Cros Prizes (1988), and in the same year the Victoires de la Musique named him Best Soloist of the Year. Winner of the 1965 Munich International Competition, violist Bruno Pasquier was Premier Soliste at the Opéra de Paris (1965-1985) and then at the Orchestre National de France. An ardent chamber musician, he has collaborated with the greatest artists of his time. Cellist Roland Pidoux founded, with Jean-Pierre Wallez, l'Ensemble Instrumental de France. Previously a member of l'Orchestre de l'Opéra de Paris, he also held a soloist chair in l'Orchestre National de France under Lorin Maazel.
