Mario Raskin was born in Buenos Aires and received his musical training (harmony, counterpoint, analysis and composition) at the National Conservatory in the Argentinian capital, choosing the harpsichord early on as his main instrument.

In the course of a 1978 concert tour Rafael Puyana met him in Buenos Aires and invited him to participate as a fellowship recipient in the sessions that take place within the Granad and Santiago de Compostela Festivals. He then moved to Paris for further training with the Columbian harpsichordist.

In 1980, on the occasion of an academy led by Kenneth Gilbert and Scott Ross, he was invited by the latter to pursue his studies at the University of Laval, Quebec. Under his direction, he earned a Masters in Performance in 1983.

Since then, residing permanently in Paris, he has pursued a career as a harpsichord soloist, giving recitals and chamber music concerts in numerous cities of Europe and the Americas: Montreal, Quebec, Barcelona, Alcala de Henares, Malte, Brussels, Amsterdam, Nuremberg and numerous cities in France.

Mario Raskin has also given recitals and led master classes in Skopje and Buenos Aires.

In addition, with his compatriot Oscar Milani he founded the ?Raskin-Milani? duo which performs regularly in France and Germany.
They have in particular premiered transcriptions of works by Piazzolla and Bach performed on two harpsichords.

In 1996 he created the Saison Musicale de Montsoreau (Maine et Loire) and was Artistic Director thereof for seven years.

He has taught harpsichord at the music school in Joinville-le-Pont since 1989 and has recorded works by Duphly, Forqueray, Soler, Bach, Boutmy, Royer, and the henceforth famous Tangos by Piazzolla for two harpsichords.
