Régis Pasquier (born 12 October 1945) is a French violinist from a family of musicians. His father Pierre Pasquier (1902–1986), a violist and his uncles Jean (1903), a violinist, and Étienne (1905–1997), a cellist, had founded a string trio, le Trio Pasquier. His brother Bruno Pasquier is a violist.


Born in Fontainebleau, Régis Pasquier was a student of Zino Francescatti, with whom he latter recorded the Concerto for Two Violins by J.S. Bach. In 1958, he won the First Prizes in violin and chamber music at the Conservatoire de Paris. From 1977 to 1986, he was principal violin of the Orchestre National de France. In 1985, he was appointed professor of violin and chamber music at the Conservatoire de Paris, where he taught until 2011.

Since 1960, he has toured extensively abroad.

With his brother Bruno (violist and conductor) and cellist Roland Pidoux, he was for a while a member of a sought-after trio.

In 1988, he received the Charles Cros Prize, and in 1991 the title of "Soloist of the year" at the Victoires de la Musique.

The virtuoso often performs in his village of Montréal in Burgundy.[1]
