Étienne Pasquier (1905 – 14 December 1997) was a French cellist.

From 1927, Étienne Pasquier was a member of the Pasquier Trio with his brothers Jean and Pierre.

Pasquier was imprisoned at Stalag VIII-A during the Second World War. While there he performed in the 1941 premiere of Quatuor pour la fin du temps by composer Olivier Messiaen, also an inmate at the camp, with Jean le Boulaire (cellist) and Henri Akoka (clarinettist).[1]

In 1959, the Trio made a tour in Southern Africa.[2]
