Trained in Paris by Roland Charmy and Jean Hubeau, she joined Ivan Galamian at the Juilliard School as many contemporary virtuosos. But his true master will be Zino Francescatti, one of the great violinists of the previous century and heir to the technique of Paganini. She has dedicated a biography (Ed de Harmattan and a CD bringing together his original compositions and transcriptions (Ed the Fingerprint).
Endowed with a solid technique and a rare sonority, which constitute the hallmark of the pagan tradition, the game of GAETANE PROUVOST lends itself as well to the lightness of the baroque repertoire as to the generosity of the great romantics.
