Fanny Paccoud
Viola and violin
After receiving her Diploma from the Strasbourg conservatory, Fanny Paccoud concentrated initially on chamber music and new music. Since 1999 she has formed a duo with the pianist Michel Gaechter, exploring a rich repertoire going from Mozart to Schoenberg. She has taken part in many premières and recordings, including Gérard Pesson's Forever Valley, Pascal Dusapins's Momo, Claudio Gabriele's Ai confine dell' oscuritàVeillée and the Le Petit Chaperon Rouge of George Aperghis… She can also sometimes be found alongside jazz musicians and improvisers.

If chamber music and contemporary music make up a large part of her activity, this nevertheless does not prevent Fanny Paccoud from pursuing serious research into early music interpretation on original instruments. She is a member - playing violin and viola - of the Concert Spirituel (Hervé Niquet), the English Baroque Soloists (John Eliot Gardiner), the Concert Brisé (William Dongois), Orfeo 55 (Nathalie Stutzmann), the Amarillis ensemble....  with whom she travels the world, taking part in numerous recordings. 

In 2002 she founded, with the violinist Alice Piérot and the cellist Elena Andreyev, the Anpapié string trio, which is devoted very specifically to the Classical repertoire (2011 recording of the trios of Hyacinth Jadin for the La Courroie label).

As privileged partner of the Amarillis ensemble, she has taken part in recording several of their discs: Ferveur et Extase (Ambronay, 2011), Music Party (AgOgique, 2011), Antoine Dauvergne / Gérard Pesson : Les Troqueurs and La Double Coquette (NoMadMusic, 2015) and Pergolesi - Stabat Mater (Sony classical, 2016).
