A specialist in early-music performance, multi-instrumentalist Mélisande Corriveau has been praised for her exceptional musical mastery. She is frequently a guest at major festivals in both North America and Europe, and is an active concert, touring, and recording artist. She regularly performs with a number of celebrated ensembles, and is a member of the ensembles Masques (France), Les Voix humaines, Sonate 1704, and Les Boréades de Montréal. Her discography comprises some 50 titles on the ATMA Classique, Analekta, Harmonia Mundi, Paradizo, Zig-Zag Territoires, and Alpha labels. Her two recent discs with harpsichordist Eric Milnes on the ATMA Classique label—Pardessus de viole and Marin Marais : Badinages—both won Opus prizes for early-music CD of the year. CBC Radio listed the latter two recordings, and the duo’s most recent release, BACH au Pardessus de viole, among the best discs of the year (in 2016, 2020, and 2022 respectively). Pardessus de viole was named classical disc of the year by ICI Radio-Canada in 2016, while Marin Marais : Badinages was named “a classical album you must hear this month” by Apple Music in 2020. Mélisande Corriveau and her partner Eric Milnes co-direct the vocal and instrumental ensemble L’Harmonie des saisons, which they founded in 2010. In 2014, Mélisande completed, with honors, a doctorate in pardessus de viole performance at the Université de Montréal. She has become one of the world’s few specialists on this instrument.
