Hugo Reyne was born in Paris in 1961 and started playing the recorder and the oboe at a very early age. Within a short space of time, he received numerous diplomas and the highest awards from several conservatoires, to say nothing of the many first prizes he obtained at national level. In 1981, he was awarded first prize at the Hurtebise international recorder competition and in 1984, he won the chamber music award at the Concours International de Bruges.
As a solo flautist, he has recorded Handel's sonatas (Harmonia Mundi), Corelli concertos (Opus 111), the Dieupart suites (EMI), the sonata for recorder by Anne Philidor (Musique a Versailles - Virgin) and a collection of works by Purcell (Virgin), Gautier (Astree-Naive), Dornel (Temperaments-Radio-France) and Fiocco (Musique en Wallonie).
For many years, he was a highly valued performer with the leaders of the Baroque movement (Frans Bruggen, William Christie, Philippe Herreweghe, Gustav Leonhardt and Jordi Savall) and had a successful orchestral career before founding his own company, La Simphonie du Marais, in 1987. In the eighties, he played both flute and oboe in most of the baroque ensembles in Paris, notably 1st flute at the Arts Florissants from 1983 to 1996. He has performed in the United States, Canada, South America, Australia, and Japan and throughout Europe. He has also worked as musical director for other orchestras including the Orchestre National de Bordeaux-Aquitaine.
Hugo Reyne, who has been awarded the Certificat d'Aptitude de Musique Ancienne, has taught in a number of music academies and conservatoires, particularly the Conservatoire National de Region de Bordeaux from 1990 to 2000, and has also shared his passion during training courses held for young musicians. He has been teaching at the Conservatoire National de Region de Marseille since 2001.
He also devotes a considerable amount of time to musicology research and to publishing early scores. In 1998, he was made Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the ministry for culture for his work on France's musical heritage. Hugo Reyne has been the artistic director of the " Musiques a la Chabotterie " festival since 2003 and lives in Vendee.
