  • Eva Zaïcik (Mezzo-soprano)

A graduate of the Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP), winner of the Révélation lyrique (Best New Vocal Artist) at the prestigious Victoires de la musique classique, and the highest-placed female singer at the 2018 Queen Elisabeth Competition, Eva Zaïcik is one of the most sought-after artists of her generation. She applies her vocal talents not only to Baroque music (working with conductors such as William Christie, Emmanuelle Haïm, Christina Pluhar, Vincent Dumestre and Christophe Rousset), but to the Classical period (with Philippe Herreweghe and Laurence Equilbey), and Romantic repertoire (with Michael Schønwandt and Thomas Hengelbrock). Major venues where she has appeared include the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées à Paris, the Theater an der Wien, the Staatsoper Berlin, and the Salzburg and Baden-Baden Festivals. Her principal attachment is to the Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse, where she has embodied the role of Carmen, going on to play Rosina in Il barbiere di Seviglia. She has a special relationship with Le Consort, with whom she has recorded two albums (Venez chère ombre and Royal Handel), and has also made a CD (Nisi Dominus / Vivaldi) with the ensemble Le Poème Harmonique. 

  • David Haroutunian (Violin)

Multifaceted violinist David Haroutunian began his musical studies in Yerevan, Armenia, coming to France at the age of sixteen to study at the Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP). Taking a first prize in violin, he went on to higher studies with Jean-Jacques Kantorow. His encounter with Boris Belkin played a crucial role in giving David a place among the worthy heirs of the Russian violin school in the West. Much celebrated as a chamber music artist, he explores a wide range of repertoire from Classical masterpieces to first performances of new music by his contemporaries. His musical partners, past and present, include Paul Badura- Skoda, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Itamar Golan, Sonia Wieder- Atherton, François Salque, Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Gérard Poulet. His recordings have received enthusiastic critical acclaim. David Haroutunian plays a violin by Andrea Guarneri generously loaned by the Atelier Cels. 

  • Xénia Maliarevitch (Piano)

Xénia Maliarevitch began early piano lessons in Saint Petersburg. After her family moved to France, she studied at the Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP). After winning first prizes in piano and chamber music, she went on to higher studies with Ana Chumachenko, Joseph Silverstein, Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Pierre-Laurent Aimard. Much in demand as a chamber musician, she has received numerous awards – at the Concours de Guérande, and at international competitions in Pinerolo, Katherinholm, Alcobaça and Thessalonica. She has given numerous recitals in France, Italy, Sweden, Russia, and Germany. Artists she has appeared with include François Salque, Alexis Galpérine, Lise Berthaud, and Patrick Messina. Her first CD, recorded with cellist Clara Zaoui, was devoted to Rachmaninov and Kodály.
