Although Olivier Baumont was very quickly recognized as an inquisitive, enthusiastic and erudite musician, there has also been acclaim for his acute sense of communication (master classes, conferences, radio and television programs) and his love both of appearing on stage and of sharing his love of the 17th and 18th centuries with other art forms (theatrical productions, artistic direction of the Festival de Champs sur Marne, books). As a result, he has become a multifaceted artist and is in great demand internationally. Olivier Baumont has been invited to appear at all the major French and overseas festivals and has performed in many countries. He has also been responsible for a large number of programs on both radio and television (France-Musique, France-Culture, Radio Suisse Romande, BBC, FR3, Muzzik and Mezzo). He is also a big theatre fan and, amongst other things, worked with Nicolas Vaude and Nicolas Marié on adapting Diderot’s Le Neveu de Rameau which remains a huge hit twenty years after its performance in 2002!
