Acclaimed for his profound musical thinking and phenomenal technique, François has already performed as a soloist and as chamber musician in over fifty countries with some of the world’s most renowned artists (Jean-Claude Pennetier, Alexandre Tharaud, Michel Portal, Paul Meyer, among others). Together with Pierre Fouchenneret (violin), Sarah Nemtanu (violin) and Lise Berthaud (alto violin) he founded the Quatuor Strada string quartet which is scheduled to perform a concert accompanying cciMB 2013 winner Emanuele Buono on 30 April 2018 at the Trianon Palace Versailles.
