Available languages: EnglishFrench violinist and conductor Daniel Cuiller has specialized in music of the French Baroque, especially in the revival of forgotten works. He has also had an especially vigorous career as an educator. Cuiller studied the modern violin at first, but very early in his studies he decided to focus on historical performances informed by musical research. He created his own group, the Ensemble Baroque de France, in 1982, and was soon asked by William Christie, the American-French director of the ensemble Les Arts Florissants, to join that group as first violinist. Cuiller remained with Les Arts Florissants until 1986 before departing to form his own new group, Stradivaria, who have played French music of the Baroque and Classical periods. He has also played solo music and concertos, and alone and with Stradivaria he has recorded for major labels including Universal, Mirare, and Cypres. In addition, Cuiller has recorded at the head of other groups, including the Arion ensemble of Montreal; with Arion he performed and recorded a program of little-known ballet music by Jean-Féry Rebel that won Opus awards for both best concert and best recording of the year in 2006. That was just one of the major releases Cuiller has devoted to music that was generally unknown, following his mentor Christie in this regard. He reconstructed and conducted the first performance of the forgotten French Baroque opera Pirame et Thisbé, jointly composed in 1726 by Rebel and François Francoeur. And together with the choir Les Cris de Paris, Cuiller presented a Te Deum by Henry Madin at the Royal Chapel of Versailles that was the largest such work composed during the French ancien régime. Cuiller has taught Baroque violin at most of the major regional conservatories in France in addition to the national conservatories in Paris and Lyon. He has also given regular classes at the Escorial in Madrid and the Shiodome Hall in Tokyo in addition to numerous master classes. In 2019, on the Château de Versailles' own label, Cuiller released La guerre des Te Deum, a sort of battle of the choral compositions featuring music by yet more unknown composers, François Colin de Blamont and Antoine Blanchard. ~ James Manheim
