Pierre-Yves Martel

Dividing his time between improvised music and early music, Pierre-Yves Martel has built an international career performing with musicians from diverse backgrounds and cultures. After studies in classical and jazz double bass, he decided in 2008 to devote himself solely to the viola da gamba, an instrument seldom used in contemporary music contexts.

Working with some of Montreal’s most active improvising musicians, he has conceived and recorded a number of projects including Engagement & Confrontation, Quartetski Does Prokofiev, Sainct Laurens and Xyz: La formule xyz. In addition to his work with Constantinople, he has performed or recorded with ensembles such as Masques, Les voix baroques, La Nef and Arion.
