Philippe Grisvard (harpsichord/organ)

Philippe was born in Nancy, France in 1980. He studied piano and oboe before joining the harpsichord class of Anne-Catherine Bücher. In 1999 he won a place at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis where he studied harpsichord and basso continuo with Jesper Christensen and pianoforte with Edoardo Torbianelli.

In 2002 he was invited to join La Cetra Barockorchester in Basel where he performed under the direction of artists such as René Jacobs, Jordi Savall and Konrad Junghänel. On completion of his studies he became the harpsichordist of the ensemble Harmonie Universelle, lead by Florian Deuter, where he plays as both continuo player and soloist on tour throughout Europe and the US and on the ensemble’s recordings for the Eloquentia label.

Philippe lives in Paris and performs regularly with Le Poème Harmonique, Les Nouveaux Caractères, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, La Chapelle Rhénane, La Fenice, Le Cercle de l’Harmonie and plays and records as a chef de chant with Emmanuelle Haim’s concert d’Astrée including productions of the Fairy Queen, La Resurrezione, Orlando, Agrippina and Giulio Cesare.
