Anne Gastinel, Cello

A precocious talent, Anne Gastinel entered the CNSMD in Lyon at the age of 11. Yo-Yo Ma, János Starker and Paul Tortelier, with whom she went on to perfect her skills and who had a profound impact on her personal and musical development, already recognised in her the maturity of an exceptional artist.

Her career now takes her to the most beautiful halls on all continents (Schauspielhaus, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Musikverein, Suntory Hall, Théâtre du Châtelet, Victoria Hall, Philharmonie de Paris, Suntory Hall, Wigmore Hall, Auditorium de Lyon, Concertgebouw Amsterdam…), in recital, chamber music and alongside the greatest French and international orchestras. 

She has performed alongside great masters such as Yehudi Menuhin, Mstislav Rostropovitch and Kurt Sanderling. During her travels, she has also met musicians and composers with whom she loves to exchange ideas: Emmanuel Krivine, Daniele Gatti, Pinchas Steinberg, Krzysztof Penderecki, Michel Plasson, Alexandre Bloch, Paavo Järvi.

In chamber music, she shares the stage with Claire Désert, with whom she has recorded numerous albums (Poulenc, Franck, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin…), with the Quatuor Hermès, Nicholas Angelich and Andreas Ottensamer, David Grimal and Philippe Cassard, Xavier Philipps and the French cellos.

Anne Gastinel plays a Testore cello from 1690.
