Born into a family of musicians, Florence Malgoire began her career under the guidance of her father Jean-Claude Malgoire with "la Grande écurie et la Chambre du Roy" and her teacher Sigiswald Kuijken with his orchestra "la petite bande", then a student at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, Holland. She has held the position of concertmaster for over three decades in prestigious ensembles such as Philippe Herreweghe's "La Chapelle Royale", Christophe Rousset's "Les Talents Lyriques", Jean-Claude Malgoire's "La Grande Ecurie et la Chambre du Roy" and William Christie's "Les Arts Florissants". She has performed on the finest international stages, and continues to enrich an already abundant discography. Her recordings include Jean-Marie Leclair's "les récréations", H Purcell's "sonates en trio", (Verany), CPE Bach's "Sanguineus-melancolicus" with "les nièces de Rameau" JS Bach's complete sonatas for violin and harpsichord with Blandine Rannou, (zig-zag territoires), FI Biber's complete rosary sonatas for violin and continuo with "les dominos" (Psalmus), the complete sonatas for violin and continuo by Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, "les sextuor de JP rameau revus par ST Saëns", "les sonates de F Couperin", with "les dominos", Noëls by MA Charpentier, "les dominos" and the Namur ensemble, (ricercar-outhere) "symphonies au siècle des lumières" (claves) conducted by Florence Malgoire with the Baroque orchestra of the Geneva HEM. In 2003, she founded "les dominos", a variable-geometry ensemble specializing in the rapidly successful repertoire of 17th- and 18th-century music (Naples, Beaune, Geneva, etc.). Parallel to this career, Florence is interested in musical direction and performance forms combining dance and theater. From the great motets of JP Rameau to the requiem of WA Mozart, Handel, Bach and Rebel, she also created shows with choreographer Béatrice Massin (a DVD for Mezzo entitled "la belle dame"), with Marie-Chrsitine Barrault on F Schubert, Marie Noël and D . Diderot. With Roser Montlló and Brigitte Seth of the "Toujours après minuit" company, a creation based on the opera "Céphale et Procris" by Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre and MO Dupin is currently in progress. A European specialist in "ancient" violin, Florence travels the world to offer her advice and, above all, to pass on her expertise: from Sablé sur Sarthe to Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, via the Juilliard School in New York, or MCGill in Montreal. Since 2000, she has taught Baroque violin and chamber music at Geneva's Conservatoire Supérieur, now HEM. Appointed Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres in 2020.
