Florian Deuter, baroque violinm, has had a remarkable career in the field of Historical Performance Practice.

By 1994, he was concertmaster of Goebel’s ensemble; since then, he has led the Gabrieli Consort, the Chapelle Royale, the Collegium Vocale Gent, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Les Musiciens du Louvre and Concerto Köln among other ensembles.
In 2003, in Cologne he founded the ensemble Harmonie Universelle to explore the rich and diverse literature of seventeenth and eighteenth-century chamber music.
