Alongside his piano studies at the Narbonne Conservatory, Bastien Rimondi attended a master's program as a child. At the age of fifteen, he met Michel Wolkowitsky, with whom he perfected his vocal technique and art of singing at the Atelier lyrique de l'Abbaye de Sylvanès.

After three years of study at the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Toulouse in Jacques Schwarz's class, he entered Frédéric Gindraux's Conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Paris in 2017, where he obtained his master's degree with honors in 2021. He will join the Académie Jaroussky's Tchaïkovsky class for the 2021-2022 season. In a variety of repertoires ranging from Baroque to contemporary, Bastien Rimondi has taken on roles such as Ferrando (Così fan tutte), Count Almaviva (The Barber of Seville), the Teapot, Arithmetic and Reinette (L'Enfant et les Sortilèges), Monsieur de Crotignac (Le Peintre parisien), Dorvil (L'Échelle de soie), the Doctor (La Chute de la maison Usher), the Evangelist (Passion selon saint Matthieu), the Innocent (Boris Godounov) and Piquillo (La Périchole).

He recently appeared as Charles de Noailles (Ressusciter la rose, created by Raphaël Lucas) to celebrate the centenary of the Villa Noailles, and as the Evangelist (Passion selon saint Jean) with Les Arts Florissants on tour in Asia. This season, he performs in recital at Seville's Teatro de la Maestranza, among other venues. Since 2015, he has formed the Florestan duo with pianist Timothée Hudrisier. They perform at numerous concerts and festivals in France, and are winners of the Gordes International Melody Competition and the Toulouse International French Melody Competition (first prize).
