  • Portrait

Chouchane Siranossian, a violinist with an audacious career, has made a name for herself both in the international baroque scene and alongside numerous prestigious orchestras. Her exceptional virtuosity, enriched by her musicological research, opens up a new dimension of interpretation, making her a highly sought-after musician.

Born in Lyon in 1984, she studied music and violin at the Conservatoire de musique de Romans and at the École supérieure de cordes in Sion. Admitted to the CNSM de Lyon in the class of Pavel Vernikov, she then joined Zakhar Bron at the Musikhochschule in Zurich, where she obtained her soloist diploma with the highest distinctions in 2007. Shortly after, she won the position of concertmaster with the St. Gallen Symphony Orchestra, a role she held until the end of the 2008/2009 season. That same year, after meeting Reinhard Goebel, she decided to dedicate herself to the study of early music at the Mozarteum in Salzburg under his guidance, and has since regularly collaborated as a concertmaster under his direction.

Drawing from this rich knowledge, her performances on period instruments and her cadenzas in major concertos from the repertoire, such as those by Mozart, Vivaldi, Beethoven, and Paganini, have been acclaimed by both the public and critics alike.

Chouchane Siranossian regularly performs as a soloist with various orchestras on both modern and baroque violins. She has collaborated with musicians such as Bertrand Chamayou, Philippe Bianconi, Benjamin Engeli, Michel Béroff, Daniel Ottensamer, and others. In early music, she has worked alongside Jos van Immerseel, Dorothee Oberlinger, Kristin Von der Goltz, Rudolf Lutz, Rüdiger Lotter, Roy Goodman, and Vaclav Luks, among many others. Exploring a wide repertoire, Chouchane Siranossian places great importance on rediscovering and recording lesser-known works from the 18th and 19th centuries, regularly participates in the creation of new works, and collaborates with renowned composers.
