Alice Piérot is a graduate of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon and has won several international chamber music competitions. She began to take an interest in Baroque music in 1988, became a member of the Musiciens du Louvre (conducted by Marc Minkowski) and was their solo violinist for many years. Since 2004, she has been First Violinist of Le Concert Spirituel (conducted by Hervé Niquet), a role which has seen her perform at the world's finest concert halls.

As a special guest of the Amarillis ensemble, she spends a great deal of her time playing chamber music with, amongst others, Les Veilleurs de Nuit, the Anpapié string trio and, both as a duo and as part of a quartet, with Aline Zylberajch, as the pair of them passionately explore the late 18th-century repertoire together.

Alice gives orchestra and Baroque violin classes at Aix-en-Provence Conservatoire, records for many French and European radio stations, and her extensive discography features more than forty recordings, including Rosaire de Biber’s sonatas (on the Alpha label), which won a Diapason d’Or for the year in 2003.

As she is a country girl at heart, and also has a taste for building projects, in 2002 she took over a former factory near Avignon and turned it into La Courroie, a huge musical venue for concerts, residencies, premiers and recordings (including this one), experimenting with new ways of sharing and performing all kinds of music, from the oldest to the most contemporary.
