Since completing a master’s degree in violin (baroque and classical) at the University of Montréal with Jean-François Rivest, Olivier Brault has become known as one of the most accomplished joung specialists in the field of baroque music.
He can be found at the heart of many well known ensembles and festivals, in Montreal as well as abroad. A musician at once sensitive, rigorous and imaginative, ready to improvise, his talents as soloist and musical director have led him to involvement in dance and theatre. Frequently heard on the radio, both in concert and in recordings, Olivier Brault also teaches baroque chamber music at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Montréal. He is a member of the Conseil québécois de la musique and of the Société de reconstitution historique du Québec.
