EN – Fanny Vicens did high studies in Piano, Accordion and Musicology at the Sorbonne University and at the Music Academies of Trossingen and Lucerne after which she made a post-graduate degree dedicated to contemporary music at the CNSMDP jointly with a post-graduate soloist diploma as a pianist. Fanny debuts at a young age on a international level. She stands out by the programs she defends on the stage, reflecting her strong commitment to contemporary music and her keen interest for historically informed performance of the early keyboard music, two topics she teaches at the PESM of Dijon. Fanny performs as a chambermusician and has been playing with thirty ensembles worldwide. Some noteworthy are: Ensembles Modern, EIC, 2e2m, Soyuz, Cairn and NEC amongst others. She has been heard on stages such as the Cité de la Musique, IRCAM, Metz Arsenal, Philharmonies of Köln, Odessa and Luxemburg, Wien Konzerthaus, KKL, Châtelet…
She premiered about fifty new works written by leading composers and by those of her generation with whom she nurtures her thoughts on the sonic identity of the accordion. Fanny is involved in the creation of a rich repertoire with electronics and co-realised the first quarter-tone accordion in France. She takes part in interdisciplinary performances, along with the choreographer Maud le Pladec or in X.A.M.P with Jean-Etienne Sotty. She was rewarded by the Bechstein Piano Competition, the DAAD, Kunststiftung BW and by the Foundations Marquardt, Banque Populaire and Menuhin.
