Fanny Pac­coud

viola

After receiving her diplo­ma from the Strasbourg Conservatory, Fanny Pac­coud (viola) concentrated initially on chamber mu­sic and new music. Since 1999, she has formed a duo with pianist Michel Gaechter, exploring a rich repertoire from Mozart to Schoenberg. She has taken part in many premieres and recordings, including Gérard Pesson’s Forever Valley, Pascal Dusa­pins’s Momo, and Claudio Gabriele’s Ai confine dell’ oscurità.

Aside from chamber music and contemporary music, Pac­coud pursues research into early music interpretation on original instruments. She is a member of the Concert Spirituel (Hervé Niquet), the English Baroque Soloists and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique (John Eliot Gardiner), the Con­cert Brisé (William Dongois), Les Ambas­sadeurs (Alexis Kossenko), and Pygmalion (Raphaël Pichon).
