Mathieu Lussier has energetically and passionately promoted the modern and baroque bassoon as solo instruments for nearly two decades throughout North America and Europe. He also devotes considerable time to chamber music as a member of ensemble Pentaèdre de Montréal. Since the summer of 2014, he has been Assistant professor at Université de Montréal. His numerous solo recordings include over a dozen bassoon concertos (Vivaldi, Mozart, Fasch, Graupner, Telemann, and Corrette), a CD of bassoon sonatas by Boismortier, three CDs of music for solo bassoon by François Devienne, and two CDs of wind music by Gossec and Méhul. Mathieu Lussier is also in demand as a guest conductor in Canada and abroad. Appointed by les Violons du Roy as Conductor- in-residence in 2012, and Associate Conductor in 2014, Lussier has led the orchestra in numerous programs both in Quebec, and on tour in greater Canada, the United States and Mexico, collaborating with artists such as Marc-André Hamelin, Alexandre Tharaud, Philippe Jarrousky, Jeremy Denk, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Anthony Marwood, and Karina Gauvin.
