Florence Malgoire (born 9 March 1960) is a French classical violinist, pedagogue and conductor.
Born in Dugny from a musicians family, Malgoire began her career under the leadership of her father Jean-Claude Malgoire within La Grande Écurie et la Chambre du Roy and of her teacher Sigiswald Kuijken with La Petite Bande. Since 1987, she has held solo violin positions in baroque ensembles such as Philippe Herreweghe's La Chapelle Royale, Christophe Rousset's Les Talens Lyriques, and William Christie's Les Arts florissants.
In 2003, she founded "Les Dominos", an ensemble with variable geometry, specialising in 17th and 18th century music, which performed in Naples, Beaune, Geneva, Lille, etc. To deepen her sonata work, Malgoire co-founded Les Nièces de Rameau, an ensemble oriented towards the chamber music repertoire.
Alongside her solo career, Malgoire is interested in musical direction: after radio in French-speaking Switzerland, for which she was invited to conduct Jean-Philippe Rameau's motets at the Agapé Festival, she conducted Jean-Féry Rebel, Georg Friedrich Haendel and Bach, but also Mozart's Requiem and Heinrich Biber.
European specialist of the ancient violin, Malgoire intervenes from Sablé to Tokyo while passing by the Royaumont Foundation, the Juilliard School of New York, and Rio de Janeiro. Since 2000, she has been teaching ancient violin and chamber music at the Conservatoire de Genève and at the Schola Cantorum de Paris.
