Born in Paris but now established in England, Alice Trocellier specialises in performance and research of the viol and its repertoire. Whilst undertaking her BA in musicology at the University of Bristol, she was awarded best performance and best dissertation prizes for her work on French musical taste in early 18th-century viol music. Alice just finished her Masters degree at the Royal Academy of Music under the tuition of Jonathan Manson, thanks to the generous support of the Countess of Munster Trust.
Twice co-winner of the Nancy Nuttall Prize, her keen interest for French 18th century music has lead her to explore this repertoire in chamber music settings with her two ensembles Les Laurentines and Theodora. Performance highlights include a performance of François Couperin’s three Leçons de Ténèbres with Les Laurentines (Raynham Hall, Norfolk), and recitals with Theodora (Utrecht Early Music Fringe Festival, MA Brugge Fringe Festival).
