Isabelle Druet

Mezzo-soprano Isabelle Druet, prize-winner of the competition Queen Elisabeth of Belgium 2008, “revelation” of the Victoires de la Musique 2010 and the program Rising Stars led by the Cité de la Musique in 2013, appears with an equal happiness both on the operas stages and in concert, the exercise which she likes particularly.

Musician with an atypical course, Isabelle Druet began to explore the voice through the traditional and current musics; at the same time as her studies in the CNSM of Paris she formed in comedienne’s job and so likes getting off the beaten track: traditional musics and current musics, operas of streets, equestrian recital… It means a lot to her to share her vocal art with the largest number.

She gives numerous concerts on stages so varied and prestigious as those of Het Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, the Philharmonic society of the Luxembourg, the Symphony hall of Birmingham, the Palace of the Arts of Budapest, the Opéra comique de Paris and the Philharmonie de Paris, Palazetto Bru Zane in Venice or still the Palais des beaux-arts in Brussels.

Brigitte Fassbaender

Born in Berlin, Brigitte Fassbaender studied singing with her father, Willy Domgraf-Fassbaender, and was engaged (at the age of 21) by the Staatsoper Munich where she sang a large repertoire of mezzo roles including Oktavian, Dorabella, Sesto, Carmen, Eboli, Amneris, Charlotte, Fricka, Geschwitz, Brangäne, Orlofsky, Quickly, Herodias, Amme, Klytemnästra, Clairon and many others. Over the years, the recital and concert platform became increasingly important, and in the recording studio, over 350 records were made. She was the first female singer to record all Schubert-Lieder-cycles. In January 1995, Brigitte Fassbaender decided to retire from the stage in order to devote herself full time to stage directing, a second career which had begun in 1990. Since then she has directed over 50 productions worldwide. She also enjoys a considerable international reputation as a teacher for solo vocal music in master classes in Europe and abroad. In January 2011, the French Government appointed her an honorary Chevalier of the Légion d‘honneur and, one year later, the German Government appointed her The Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. In 2012, she was awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. In 2013, she received the Hugo Wolf Medal of the International Hugo Wolf Academy Stuttgart. In 2017, she was awarded the ECHO Klassik for her life’s work.
