Accordionist, bandoneon virtuoso and composer, Richard Galliano expresses himself through many different musical genres, from classical to jazz. He is the son of the Maestro and accordion player Lucien Galliano. He began studying accordion at the age of four, and later studied at the Nice Conservatory, then directed by the famous organist Pierre Cochereau, where he followed courses of harmony, counterpoint and trombone. Having moved to Paris in 1973, he fascinated Claude Nougaro for whom he composed the music for songs such as Allée des brouillards, Des voiliers, Vie violence . For three years, he was arranger, conductor and composer within a group where he was alongside authentic jazz musicians. He also took part in many recording sessions in the field of pop music and film music. His second most important encounter for his career as an artist takes place in 1980 with Astor Piazzolla, who advises him to create the French "New Musette" style, as he himself had created the Argentine "Tango nuevo". He is the only accordionist to record for the prestigious classical label Deutsche Grammophon, for which he has recorded more than 50 albums. He boasts numerous collaborations with artists from the world of jazz and French song genres. He was awarded in 1997 and 1998 at the Victoires de la Musique Jazz for his album "New York Tango" and "Blow up", and in 2014 at the Victoires de la Musique Classique as Best Composer of the Year.

After winning the First prize for viola at the National Conservatory in Paris at the age of 18 in the class of the Maestro Serge Collot, Jean Paul Minali Bella studied in the USA at Yale where, with Walter Trampler, he discovered the viola d’amore, an instrument which he still plays. Back in France, he obtained a diploma for teaching and became principal viola in the Orchestra National de France, a position he will leave to join the Arpeggione Quartet, with whom he performed for five years in many festivals in France and abroad. He teaches at the Conservatory of Bordeaux.
After studying the cello with Jean Boats and Marcel Bardon for several years, Eric Levionnois entered the Paris Conservatory at the age of 14 and studied with André Navarra and Philippe Muller. Having obtained the First prize for cello and chamber music, he started playing with the pianist Jean Hubeau in different ensembles: string trio, trio and string quartet with piano, string quintet ... and won the International Competition of the city of Paris. After a brief period of teaching at the Paris Conservatory, he was appointed principal cellist "Super-Soloist" of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France.
After winning a first gold medal for cello and double bass at the Conservatory of Versailles, Sylvain Le Provost was admitted to the Paris Conservatory and three years later he won the First prize for double bass.
