Baptiste
Romain

fiddle, renaissance violin, rebec and Bagpipes

Roots
I was born in Maisons-Laffitte, in a western suburb of Paris.

Study
Before coming to Basel, I studied for a year at the Centre de Musique Médiévale in Paris. I stayed at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis for 5 years and had lessons with Randall Cook, Crawford Young and Dominique Vellard.

Professional
Besides my concert activities with my own Miroir de Musique and also other ensembles, I teach at the Medieval-Renaissance Department of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.

Why
Being a musician was clear from the beginning and early music was a possible direction. I almost slipped into the jazz or contemporary scene.

Elective Affinities
Umberto Eco: The name of the rose, self-hypnosis, playing the clarinet, Machaut’s motet Inviolata genitrix, Boulez’ Dialogue de l’ombre double, Lasso’s chanson La nuit froide et sombre“.
