Martin Egidi began the cello at the age of 7 at the Lausanne Conservatory. His studies lead him to obtain a Bachelor's degree with the congratulations of the jury in the class of Patrick Demenga. He was then awarded several national prizes. Since 2018, he has continued his studies at the Musik-Akademie in Basel in the class of Danjulo Ishizaka. He also perfected his skills with internationally renowned musicians, such as David Geringas, Marko Ylönen, Lionel Cottet, Gustav Rivinius and Stephan Forck.

Martin performs regularly in French-speaking and German-speaking Switzerland, notably as a soloist with the Orchester des Jeunes de la Suisse Romande, the Orchester d'Yverdon or the Orchester Qui Passe Par Là or as a duo with the percussionist Augustin Lipp or the pianist Elise Hiron . 

Always fascinated by chamber music, he plays in various ensembles at concerts and other festivals in Switzerland and abroad, notably during the Schwäbischer Frühling or the Sine Nomine Festival. 

In addition to his regular practice in the orchestra, he devotes himself largely to the contemporary repertoire and at the same time studies the baroque cello at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.
