A native of Savoie, France, Loris Barrucand began his harpsichord studies at the Conservatory of Annecy. At the age of 17, he was admitted to the classes of Olivier Baumont (harpsichord) and Blandine Rannou (basso continuo) at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris, where he recently completed his Master’s studies. His master thesis, written under the guidance of musicologist Elisabeth Gallat-Morin, focuses on the musical life in New France (the area colonized by France in North America). Outside of his formal studies, he has worked with renowned musicians such as Christophe Rousset, Bertrand Cuiller, Kenneth Weiss, Hank Knox, Luc Beauséjour, Françoise Lengellé, Mira Glodeanu and Lionel Sow, among others.
An avid supporter of interdisciplinary approaches to baroque art, Loris Barrucand has participated in the production of La Belle Absente, a theatrical, musical, and choreographed work written by actor France David and composer Jean-Christophe Revel.
In June and July 2014 he was seen and heard collaborating with the dance troupes Les Jardins Chorégraphiques and Compagnie Beaux-Champs, as well as performing in a duo with harpsichordist Clément Geoffroy in Les Indes Galantes ou les Automates de Topkapi, a franco-québécois production for four dancers and two harpsichordists based on the danced airs from J.-Ph. Rameau’s Les Indes Galantes. In May 2015, this production was brought to Toronto for two critically-acclaimed performances at the Toronto Masque Theatre.
Since 2013, Loris Barrucand has been a member of the Académie Desprez, an organisation that encourages the international development and influence of the Drottningholms Slottsteater in Sweden.
