Sandrine Cantoreggi was born in Bordeaux and began playing the violin at the Luxembourg Music Conservatory. Her astonishingly rapid progress allowed her to be admitted to the renowned Paris Conservatoire CNSMDP at the age of 14.
Following the tradition of the violinists Eugène Ysaye and Georges Enescu, Sandrine embodies the Franco-Belgian violin school and expands her sound and range of expression through her interest in the Russian violin school.
Sandrine is a complete artist who has always loved dialogue with other forms of artistic expression, whether musical, literary or plastic.
Sandrine performs as a soloist with orchestra, in solo violin recitals and in various chamber music groups such as the luxemburgish ensemble Kammerata and the string trio OPUS3.
She has performed on renowned European stages with personalities such as Yehudi Menuhin, Vladimir Spivakov, Yuri Bashmet, Georges Octors, Jan Stulen, Stéphane Denève, Pierre Cao, Bruno Canino, Daniel Blumenthal, Dana Ciocarlie, Gustav Rivinius, Valérie Aimard, Manuel Fischer-Dieskau, Connie Shih...
International tours take her to Russia, the USA, Georgia and Japan. CD recordings testify to her musical authenticity. Sandrine Cantoreggi has recorded chamber works and concertos by Haydn, Mozart, Locatelli, Onslow, Respighi, Lalo, Ravel, Enescu, Ropartz and Ysaye for the Turtle Records, Pavane, Ligia and Kalidisc labels.
She is also passionate about passing on her knowledge to younger generations. She has taught at the Brussels Conservatory and is currently a professor at the Luxembourg City Conservatory.
She is the founder and president of Journées Musicales Mondorf a.s.b.l.
In the field of science and the arts, His Royal Highness Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg awarded her the Order of Adolf von Nassau for civil and military merits.
Banque Internationale à Luxembourg is proud to support Sandrine Cantoreggi with a magnificent 1754 violin by Giovanni Battista GUADAGNINI.
