"Celine Frisch was born in Marseille in 1974 and started playing the harpsichord at the age of six. In 1992, she was awarded her first harpsichord and chamber music prizes at the Conservatoire of Aix-en-Provence. She then carried on studying at the Schola Cantorum in Bâle with such teachers as Andreas Staier ans Jesper Christensen, before being graced with her soloist certificate. Winner of the "Juventus Prize" in 1996, she became, in 2002, the first harpsichord player ever chosen for the "Victoires de la Musique Classique"...
Today, she is mainly involved in her activities as a soloist and as a member of the Café Zimmermann orchestra which she founded with Pablo Valetti in 1998. Thus, she performs as a guest star in the greatest French concert halls, (such as the Theatre de la Ville, Radio France, the Théâtre du Chatelet in Paris, the various festivals taking place in Ile-de-France or even in Roque d'Anthéron), as well as in Washington, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Seoul, Brussels, Lisboa...
