Guillaume Tardif



Guillaume Tardif is Associate Professor of Violin and serves as Head of Strings and Chamber Music at the Department of Music, University of Alberta. His current research explores various aspects of the violin’s rich history and often features new or neglected works - such as Gallois-Montbrun’s accompanied version of Paganini’s 24 Caprices, which he presented with pianist Roger Admiral at Carnegie Hall in 2011. He has appeared widely as a violin soloist and collaborated with ensembles and distinguished artists in Canada, Europe, Asia, and South America. A guest professor at many universities (Innsbruck, Bergen, Stockholm, Budapest Liszt Academy, Zhejiang University, Hong Kong Academy, and others), he recently joined the faculties of international summer programs at Völs am Schlern (Italy) and Beverly Hills (California). His many contributions to Edmonton's cultural life, including his leadership of the Enterprise Quartet project earned him one of Avenue Magazine’s ‘Top 40 Under 40’ awards in 2012. In addition to producing CD recordings, Guillaume Tardif has authored a number of violin arrangements, cadenzas, and exercises. He has served on several adjudication panels and is currently President of the Alberta String Association. Guillaume Tardif studied at the Conservatoire du Quebec with Jean Angers and completed doctoral studies with Oleh Krysa at the Eastman School of Music.
