VINCENT COURTOIS
Cellist, composer



ABOUT



Vincent Courtois' classical training endowed him with technique, precision, and instrumental control. His curiosity and eclecticism led him to play with brilliant musicians from different backgrounds: Rita Mitsouko, Christian Escoudé, Michel Petrucciani, Michel Portal, to name a few.
With Sylvie Courvoisier, Dominique Pifarely, Joëlle Léandre and Joachim Kühn, Courtois returns to his instrument's classical aspect.

His collaboration with Rabih Abou Kahlil frees him as a soloist. His work with Louis Sclavis, with whom he shares a cinematic approach of music, endows him with a fine sense of melody.

Strengthened by his many experiences and influences, Vincent Courtois has developed a unique musical exploration. His creative process builds on musical relationships, the balance of personalities and energies, the impact of contrast, ideas of sound, images, incertitude and silence.
Creating a musical form where freedom is paradoxically managed with utmost rigour and attentiveness, he gives collective creation a chance and each collaborator a unique position in a spirit of trust and mutual involvement.
