Roldán Bernabé

Roldán Bernabé was born in Elche, Spain, and has lived in Paris since 2012, enjoying the support of a circle of likeminded musicians, and developing his career as violinist. Since 2014, he has been a permanent member of Ensemble Diderot.

Roldán is a member of Insula Orchestra and also regularly works with other French and Spanish groups performing on period instruments. He is frequently invited to play with groups such as Les Talens Lyriques, Les Arts Florissants, Opera Fuoco, and La Petite Symphonie, and has played with Pulcinella, Brecon Baroque, La Tempestad and Forma Antiqva.

Roldán studied at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón in  Zaragoza, Spain, and at the CRD in Orsay, France. At the same time, he completed the Formation Supérieure au métier de l'orchestre classique et romantique in Saintes, France, giving him the opportunity to work with  Philippe Herreweghe, Jos van Immerseel, Alessandro Moccia, Vicente Huerta, Hiro Kurosaki, Patrick Cohen-Akenine, Lina Tur-Bonet, Nicolas Chumachenco and the Casals and Quiroga String Quartets. As part of his career development, Roldán was a member of the European Union Baroque Orchestra, playing under Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Rachel Podger and Gottfried von der Goltz.

Aside from historical performance of baroque, classical and romantic music, Roldán pursues an interest in Andalusian classical music, and is currently undertaking research into the violin music of John Cage and Morton Feldman.
