Artist photo of Benoît Fallai - Lute, Theorbo, Guitar

Lute, theorbist and guitarist, Benoît Fallai obtained his guitar prize with the congratulations of the jury in 2010 in Arnaud Dumond’s class. He then studied theorbo and baroque lute at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse in Lyon with Rolf Lislevand. After obtaining his degree in 2016, he studied at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with the legendary Hopkinson Smith, and was the first lutenist to be admitted to the master’s degree in improvisation.

As a sensitive and passionate musician, he devotes himself to the solo lute repertoire as well as to the art of accompaniment. He also practices Indian music (Kalasri Ensemble), singing and different styles of popular music (French songs, English pop, Sprituals, Latin American music).

As a continuo player, he has the honour of collaborating with prestigious ensembles, including La Fenice, La Chimera and Les Arts Florissants.
