Clément Geoffroy starts studying harpsichord at the age of 8 in Nantes and attends the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse. In 2011, he wins first prize at the Paola Bernardi Harpsichord Competition in Bologna, and completes his MA with honours in 2013. Either as soloist or continuist, he has since collaborated with a number of such ensembles as Pygmalion, La Rêveuse, Opéra Fuoco, Le Poème Harmonique, or Le Concert d’Astrée…
He is a founding member of the Escadron Volant de la Reine, an ensemble currently in residence at the Fondation Singer-Polignac.
A pianist, harpsichordist and trained accompanist, Gwennaëlle Alibert enters the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Switzerland) in 2007 from where she graduates in 2010 with a Master of Arts in Harpsichord Performance, first-class honours. The same year, she co-founds Philomèle, an Early music ensemble supported by the Ville de Strasbourg and the DRAC Alsace. Gwennaëlle regularly performs in Switzerland and France, within various ensembles. She currently teaches the piano, the harpsichord, and Early music, also accompanist, at the CRC of Vaulx-en-Velin (Rhône). In 2011, she wins a Déclic Jeunes scholarship from the Fondation de France, which allows her to carry on with her research work on composer J.J. Froberger.
