Available languages: EnglishA harpsichordist and horn player long associated with the field of early music and period ensembles, such as Les Arts Florissant, Le Concert Spirituel, and Le Poème Harmonique, Bertrand Cuiller has also pursued an active career as a solo recitalist and recording artist. He began studying harpsichord at age eight with his mother, Jocelyne Cuiller, and was enrolled in the Conservatoire de Nantes, where he continued his keyboard studies with Pierre Hantaï. He also studied horn with Marcel Ollé. When he was 17, he advanced to the Conservatoire de Paris, where he became a harpsichord student of Christophe Rousset, and studied horn in Lyon with Michel Garcin-Marrou.

Cuiller has also performed with comedienne Louise Moaty in a program of the music of Jean-Henri d'Anglebert and the letters of Gabriel-Joseph de Lavergne, Comte de Guilleragues. He also accompanied a production of Denis Diderot's Le Neveu de Rameau at the Théâtre le Ranelagh in Paris. Cuiller has recorded for Alpha, Mirare, and Agogique, and since 2018 he has been recording the complete harpsichord music of François Couperin for Harmonia Mundi.

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen Diapason d'or
In volume 2 of his Couperin cycle, Bertrand Cuiller paints a portrait of the young François who, at age of 17 becomes organist at the Saint-Gervais Church in Paris – a prestigious post that soon leads to his being appointed organist of the royal chapel and harpsichord teacher to the king’s children. The period is firmly marked by his greater maturity: Bertrand Cuiller’s eloquent readings at the harpsichord, paired with the expertise of his guest Jean-Luc Ho heard in the two organ masses, reveal the infinite diversity of sonorities which are the fruit of this composer’s unique imagination. © harmonia mundi

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason
A miniature Theatre of the World This box set launches a new complete recording of François Couperin's works for harpsichord: an extensive selection of vocal pieces and chamber music and the organ masses will be gathered around this rich corpus, each in its own way shedding further light on the keyboard music. In this first volume, Bertrand Cuiller draws the portrait of a mysterious alchemist: the ordres chosen here play with the colour of sounds, alliterations, double meanings and parodies, freely inspired by the world of the theatre. An enigmatic world to which Bertrand Cuiller undoubtedly holds the key . . .© harmonia mundi
