« The musicians of Pulcinella play with poetic, sensitive fluidity. » Diapason

Pulcinella is a collective of virtuoso soloists gathered in a chamber spirit around the cellist Ophélie Gaillard. Its members, all of whom appear with renowned ensembles, share a passion for baroque music performances on period instruments. Those highly experienced musicians, for whom sound and articulation are of the utmost importance, explore some of the major works of the repertoire, but also unearthing or unpublished pieces.

The ensemble’s five recordings have received glowing reviews from the press: the complete Sonatas for cello and basso continuo of Vivaldi (2006) and Luigi Boccherini (2007), and Bach Arias (2012). Since 2014, two albums devoted to CPE Bach and recorded by the Pulcinella Orchestra garnered awards and distinctions from the national and international press (‘Diapason d’or de l’année’, ‘Choc de Classica’, Strad, Toccata, Gramophone).

The ensemble works regularly with the finest singers of the younger generation and appears at prestigious venues (Théâtre du Châtelet, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, Arsenal in Metz, festivals of Beaune, Radio France – Montpellier, Pontoise, Colmar, Vézelay…).  slider2-03

Pulcinella is developing a committed, socially aware policy, in particularly on its territory of residence, Ile-deFrance, and especially in Seine-Saint-Denis, in order to introduce Baroque and Classical music to the greatest number.

After a three-year residency at the Pontoise Baroque Festival and the Espace Michel Simon in Noisy-le-Grand, the musicians of Pulcinella are henceforth continuing their collaborations with La Barbacane in Beynes, the Collège des Bernardins (Paris), and the City of Pantin.

Since 2013, the Pulcinella Orchestra has appeared in orchestral formation, in particular with the Maîtrise de Radio-France under the direction of Sofi Jeanin, Les Pages et des Chantres du CMBV, under the direction of Olivier Schneebeli, and the Arsys Bourgogne chorus.
