Pierre Gallon grandit dans un foyer débordant d’instruments en tous genres, un terrain de jeu sans limites. À dix ans, le clavecin s’impose à lui comme le moyen d’expression le plus évident. Bibiane Lapointe et Thierry Maeder le conduisent aux portes du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris et de ses classes de musique ancienne, conduites par Olivier Baumont et Blandine Rannou.

Founded by Fabio Bonizzoni in 1995 as a vocal and instrumental group, La Risonanza is now a chamber orchestra using period instruments. It has flexible instrumentation depending upon the repertoire performed and it occasionally collaborates with guest choirs for performances of larger works. The ensemble particularly focuses its attention on Italian style music composed between the end of the 17th and the first half of the 18th Century.
Assistant conductor of the Ensemble Intercontemporain (EIC), working first for Susanna Mälkki (2012/2013), then for Matthias Pintscher (2013/2015), Julien Leroy joins in the new generation of young French conductors.

This young French conductor has a contagious energy and enthusiasm, a meticulous but truly imaginative musical language, and a will to share an extensive lyrical and symphonic repertoire with all. He brings a breath of fresh air to the new generation of classical musicians.
