Odile Edouard has been a baroque violin teacher at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon since 1996, and is one of the leading figures of the second generation of musicians devoting their careers to performing on historic instruments. Most of her work involves chamber music, along with many solo recitals. As she is keen to continue her research work while at the same time taking a fresh approach to performance, she recently worked alongside Alain Gervreau on his research into the birth of the violin family with the formation of their new Renaissance violin ensemble “Les Sonadori”.
In addition to this, she spent twenty years playing in the “Les Witches” ensemble with whom she worked on theatricality and improvisation. She often performs with the organist and harpsichordist Freddy Eichelberger, and also with Philippe Despont and Alain Gervreau in their “Les Conversations” ensemble. She has appeared at most of the major European festivals and her discography includes more than thirty recordings for Harmonia Mundi, Alpha, L’Encelade, Ligia Digital, Arcana, L'Empreinte Digitale, Hortus, Sinfonia and K617.
