“It is the privilege of exceptional artists to attract the limelight. The violinist Chouchane Siranossian belongs to that category.“ (Diapason)

Chouchane Siranossian is one of the leading virtuosos on the international Baroque scene today, both as a soloist and alongside many prestigious orchestras. Her mastery of the instrument, nourished by her musical research and her exemplary experience, has made her a highly sought-after musician of marked individuality. When Chouchane is not on stage or researching, she devotes herself to her passion for mountaineering and ski touring.

Chouchane starts in the 2023/24 season with a reinvitation to Wigmore Hall London. A highlight of the season is her tour with Les Siècles and François-Xavier Roth, where she’ll be performing the Beethoven Violin concerto in Paris, Aix-en-Provence, Valenciennes and Madrid. Chouchane will be artist in residence of two festivals performing various concerts: At Bachfest Leipzig she’ll make her debut with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Bodenseefestival invites her with the Bruckner Orchester Linz and diverse chamber music concerts. Further, Chouchane performs with Beethoven Orchestra Bonn.

She began studying the violin with Tibor Varga in Sion, then was admitted at the age of fifteen to Pavel Vernikov’s class at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon. In 2002, she began training with Zakhar Bron at the Musikhochschule Zürich, and obtained her soloist’s diploma with the highest honours in 2007. Shortly afterwards she became concertmaster of the Sinfonieorchester St. Gallen (Switzerland), where she remained until her decisive encounter with Reinhard Goebel. She then devoted herself intensely to the study of early music with him at the Salzburg Mozarteum and regularly worked with him as a soloist.

She also participates in the creation of new works, collaborating with such composers as Daniel Schnyder, Marc-André Dalbavie, Aaron Kernis, Bechara El Khoury, Éric Tanguy, Benjamin Attahir and Thomas Demenga.

Chouchane Siranossian performs as a soloist on both modern and Baroque violin, with partners including Leonardo García Alarcón, Bertrand Chamayou, Andrea Marcon, Jos van Immerseel, Christophe Rousset, Andreas Spering, Thomas Hengelbrock and François-Xavier Roth as well as orchestras such as Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Bamberger Symphoniker, Les Siècles, Stuttgarter Kammerorchester and Venice Baroque Orchestra. She performs in major concert halls, as the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Palau de la Música Catalana, Wigmore Hall London, Bozar Brussels, KKL Luzern, Philharmonie Köln, Warsaw Philharmonic Hall and Brucknerhaus Linz, as well as at prestigious festivals such as the Rheingau Musik Festival, Bachfest Leipzig, Dresdner Musikfestspiele, Thüringer Bachwochen and Heidelberger Frühling.

As an Alpha Classics exclusive artist, Chouchane Siranossian released her latest album Duello d’archi a Venezia in June 2023. With the Venice Baroque Orchestra under Andrea Marcon she presents a “duel” between the works of Vivaldi, Tartini, Locatelli and Veracini.

Her previous album Bach before Bach with Leonardo García Alarcón and Balázs Máté in 2021 was awarded the Diapason d'Or and a Pizzicato Supersonic. Siranossian's recording of Tartini's violin concertos with the Venice Baroque Orchestra under Andrea Marcon, released in 2020, received enthusiastic critics and various awards such as the Preis der Deutschen Schallplatten Kritik in March 2020, the Choc Classica 2020, the ICMA 2021 in the category "Baroque Instrumental" as well as the Premio della critica discografica Franco Abbiati - III Edizione - 2021. In the same year she released the violin concertos by Andreas Romberg - recorded with the Capriccio Barock Orchester – which were highly acclaimed by the press, won the Muse d’Or of Muse Baroque and was nominated for the ICMA 2022. Her first solo album, Time Reflexion, was awarded a ‘Diapason Découverte’ in 2015. Her recording of the Mendelssohn Concerto with Anima Eterna Brugge (In Time) and the CD L’Ange et le Diable in duo with Jos van Immerseel both received numerous prizes, including two ICMA (International Classical Music Awards, in 2017 and 2019).

Chouchane plays on two violins: A Baroque violin by Giuseppe and Antonio Gagliano, and a violin by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini made available by courtesy of Fabrice Girardin, luthier at La Chaux-de-Fonds.
