Amandine Beyer & Gli Incogniti

The Austrian Cultural Forum recommends this special event hosted by La Maison Française. You can look forward to an elegant evening of Austrian music from the 17th century.

One of the finest Baroque violinists of her generation, Amandine Beyer possesses a fierce dedication to authentic performance that shows in every facet of her work, from embracing modernist works to the artistically faithful "chin off" playing style she uses.

Founded by Ms. Beyer, Gli Incogniti has played at some of the top concert halls and festivals around the globe.

P R E S S

"The effect is exhilarating - Beyer's fast speeds don't threaten perfect rhythmic control, and the group's playing has an admirable lightness of touch." — Gramophone

"Amandine Beyer is a wonderfully expressive and sensitive violinist with a secure technique, clear and sonorous tone and discreet approach to ornamentation..." — The Strad

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to enjoy 17 century masterpieces with one of France's most sought-after ensembles.
