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).
