Jan de Winne, traverso
Jan De Winne studied flute, chamber music and transverse flute at the conservatories of Gent and Brussels.
Simultaneously he graduated in musicology and art history at the University of Gent. He completed his traverso studies with Barthold Kuijken in 1991. He was finalist of the prestigious international early music competition in Bruges in 1987.
He has been a member of the Collegium Vocale and the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées (Philippe Herreweghe) for more than 15 years before turning to a career as soloist and chamber musician. His passion for period instruments led him to make baroque and classical flutes. In 1988, he founded il Gardellino with Marcel Ponseele.
He recorded several chamber music programs and flute concertos with il Gardellino for Accent and several other labels. Jan De Winne teaches traverso and chamber music at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et Dance of Paris and the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

Michel Kiener, harpsichord
Michel Kiener was born in Genève, where he realized his musical studies obtaining the prize of piano virtuosity and harpsichord with Louis Hiltbrand and Isabelle Nef. He continued his studies in the Conservatoire Sweelinck of Amsterdam with Anneke Uittenbosch and Gustav Leonhardt.
Parallel to his activity as harpsichord player, he has developed an enormous interest for the technique and sonority of the pianoforte from the XVIIIth and XIXth century. He possesses two typical instruments of the Vienna school: a copy of an instrument Antón Walter (Vienna 1795), realized by Christopher Clarke, and the original Johann Fritz (Vienna 1813) whose sonorities are admirable for the whole repertoirte between Haydn-Mozart and Beethoven or Schubert.
His activity inside the chamber music or the Lied they have led him to working with musicians like Christophe Coin, Pierre Fournier, Erich Höbart, Enrico Onofri, Jaap Schröder, Gilles Golliard, Gustav Leonhardt, Pierre Hantaï, Patrick Cohen, Jan de Winne, Jennifer Smith, Marta Almajano, Guillemette Laurens, Max van Egmond, Hervé Lamy, Quartet Mosaïques…
He collaborates regulary as soloist with Il Giardino Armonico and the Ensemble Il Gardellino. Regulary is invited by the Soloists of Moscow and the orchestras of the Foundation Gulbenkian, Suisse Romande, Würtemberg, Chamber of Munich…
His concerts have taken him for all the European countries as well as South America and Orient. Between his recordings they find J.S. Bach’s works (Variations Goldberg, Concerts …), C.P.E. Bach, Rameau, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven… He is founding and an artistic counselor of Amarcordes. Since 1977 he is a teacher in the Conservatoire from Genève.
