Théotime Langlois de Swarte

Violonist "fiery and romantic", Théotime Langlois de Swarte is the youngest member of the Ensemble Les Arts Florissants directed by William Christie. His repertoire extends from the 17th century to contemporary creation, in a search for sincerity enriched by playing on period instruments.

After studying at the Conservatory of Perpignan, he continued his career with the help of the Zaleski Foundation at the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris in the class of Devy Erlih. In 2014 he joined the class of Michael Hentz at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance de Paris (CNSMDP) where he played solo with the Conservatoire Laureates orchestra. He is a member of two chamber music ensembles: the Trio Guermantes (trio with piano) and Le Consort (sonata trio on period instruments) with which he focuses on the interpretation of the French repertoire. His hobbies are Aikido, Horseriding and Russian Literature.


He recorded his first solo album “Mad Lover” with Thomas Dunford for Harmonia Mundi in September 2019: music from Nicolo Matteis, John and Henry Eccles, and Henry and Daniel Purcell. In 2019, he will enjoy the release of 3 albums recorded in 2018: Live album recorded for B Records with le Consort, “Opus 1” for Alpha Classics with le Consort and “Venez, chère Ombre” for Alpha Classics with le Consort and Eva Zaicik.
