Geneviève Laurenceau began playing violin at the age of three in her hometown of Strasbourg.
The instrument, similar in range to that of the human voice, from then on became both the shape and the voice of her dreams and remains hers for life. 
Her teachers – Wolfgang Marschner, Zakhar Bron and Jean-Jacques Kantorow – turned her into a multifaceted artist with a foot in all three of the great European violin traditions. 
After several international successes, Geneviève was invited to perform as a soloist with major French and international orchestras under the direction of conductors such as François-Xavier Roth, Michel Plasson, Walter Weller, Tugan Sokhiev, Thomas Søndergård, Antony Hermus and Christian Arming.
A lover both of the concert platform and of collaboration, Geneviève believes deeply in the fundamental values of the arts, of culture and of music. 
She is equally passionate about collaborating whether in teaming up with the philosopher Raphaël Enthoven or with the "birds singers" Jean Boucault and Johnny Rasse.
