Gwennaëlle Alibert (Harpsichord)
In 2010, she graduates from the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with a Master of Arts for harpsichord performance (first class honours) in Jörg-Andreas Bötticher’s class. She regularly appears in Switzerland and France with various ensembles. She teaches the piano, the harpsichord, Early music, and is also an accompanist at the Vaulx-en-Velin Conservatory. In 2011, Gwennaëlle wins a Déclic Jeunes scholarship from the Fondation de France, which allows her to carry on with her research work on Froberger, German composer and virtuoso.
 
Clément Geoffroy (Harpsichord)
Clément Geoffroy starts studying the harpsichord at the age of 8 in Jocelyne Cuiller’s class in Nantes, then leaves to study with Bertrand Cuiller, before entering the CNSMDP (The Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse). He completes his Master of Arts (with distinctions) in 2013. In 2011, he is awarded the first prize at the International Harpsichord Competition in Bologna. A much sought-after continuo player, he performs with Le Concert d’Astrée, La Rêveuse, Stradivaria, La Chapelle Rhénane, Les Surprises, etc..
Clément Geoffroy is a founding member of L’Escadron Volant de la Reine, an ensemble in residence at the Fondation Singer-Polignac and a prize-winner at the Antwerp IYAP in 2013.
