Christophe Coin, cello

Christophe Coin is one of the leading baroque musicians of our time. He graduated in the class of Professor Andre Navarra at the Conservatory for Music in Paris. After Graduating, Coin took great interest in playing viola da gamba and baroque cello. He studied under Nicolaus Harnoncourt and Jordi Savall.

In 1991 Coin established L’ Ensemble Baroque de Limoges. For over 20 years Coin has been a member of Mosaiques Quartet and his performances in the quartet has won him two Gramophone Awards for interpreting works of Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert.

Coin’s interpretations of the works of Haydn, Purcell, Marin Marais and Vivaldi resulted in fruitful collaborations with conductors such as Nicolaus Harnoncourt, Gustav Leonhardt and Christopher Hogwood.

As a musician Coin regularly collaborates with Patrick Cohen, Wielend Kuijken, Monica Hugget, Eric Hobarth and Hopkinson Smith.

As a conductor or as a soloist, Coin is a frequent guest to Berlin Philharmonics, l’Orchestre des Champs-Elysées, Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, Concentus Musicus Wien, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Academy of Ancient Music, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Amsterdam Bach Solisten and various French orchestras.


Ensemble 1756

Ensemble 1756 was founded in 2006. It has devoted itself to the interpretation of 18th and 19th century music on historical instruments and has developed a unique, archaic sound.

Relentless practice and many concerts in St. Carl’s church in Vienna have brought the orchestra critical acclaim. It also has a long- standing cooperation with the Heinrich Biber choir. Both groups perform in Salzburg as well as Vienna and Munich. At the 2013/14 Tartini Festival they performed Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and Händel’s Messiah. However the source of inspiration for the orchestra’s musical activity remains Mozart. The name of the orchestra, “1756” is testament to that as this is the birth-year of Mozart, a year that marked the beginning of a unique and wonderful period in the history of music.
