Fanny Clamagirand

Instruments: Strings | Violin

She is one of those artists whose talent was revealed very early on, just out of childhood; one of those who we have seen grow, flourish and stand out. The ease, authority, elegance and finesse of her playing quickly established themselves.

Fanny Clamagirand maintains a relationship that seems so natural and spontaneous with her instrument that one cannot imagine the work, research and introspection that have accompanied her journey.

The violin came into her life by chance – from lack of space in the originally coveted piano class – but this immediately matched the tem­perament of this poised child already endowed with a fine musical ear and whose maturity and precocity are already impressive. “From my teenage years, it was obvious to me that music would be my profession,” she says. A profession from which she learned the fundamentals alongside great pedagogues, heirs, for the most part, of the prestigious Russian school, starting with Larissa Kolos who revealed the secrets to her, shaped her temperament and encouraged her to confront herself, very quickly, both on stage and in the formative events of international competitions, where she shines.
