The French contralto Anthea Pichanick brilliantly
appeared on the music scene by winning First Prize at
the prestigious Antonio Cesti International Baroque
Opera Competition in Innsbruck in 2015. Music lovers
discovered a unique color of voice, a timbre of striking
depth and a musicality that combines refinement and intensity. This victory earned her a recital with the ensemble L'Astrée at the Konzerthaus in Vienna.

During the summer 2016, Anthea Pichanick gave a highly acclaimed performance at the Festival Inter-
national d'Opéra Baroque et Romantique de Beaune as Asteria in Tamerlan by Vivaldi, with the ensem-ble Les Accents conducted by violinist Thibault Noally. Diapason magazine praises "a generous, per-
fectly composed voice and an admirable diction". This event marks the beginning of a regular collabo-
ration with the Festival de Beaune as well as Les Accents and Thibault Noally. Her 2016/2017 season is
characterized by eclecticism. In December 2016, at the Théat? re des Champs-Élysées, she sings Han-
del's The Messiah with Le Concert Spirituel conducted by Hervé Niquet. A few months later, she imper-
sonates one of Strauss' Elektra Handmaids at the Lyon Opera House under the baton of Hartmut
Haenchen. The special relationship with Les Accents strengthens with the revival of Tamerlano de Vi-
valdi in Dortmund, Germany, a Vivaldi recital at the Theatre Grévin in Paris in June 2017: « We fall im-
mediately under the spell of a rich contralto voice as rare as original, whose texture is soft as velvet,
bright and dark at the same time », underlines the specialized site Forumopera.

Shortly afterwards, she brilliantly assumed the title role of Alessandro Scarlatti's Mitridate once again at
the Beaune Festival: « Anthea Pichanick takes on the boldness as well as the outpourings of the title
role, with her souple, free and smooth contralto » (Diapason).
In the same summer, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with Le Poème Harmonique and Vincent Dumestre,
alongside Julia Lezhneva, in Krakow, was also featured.
The 2017/2018 season is just as intense: Mozart's Requiem at La Seine Musicale de Boulogne- Billan-
court with Les Musiciens du Louvre conducted by Marc Minkowski, directed by Bartabas; Handel's
Israel in Egypt with Les Cris de Paris and Les Siècles at the Festival Cervantino in Mexico; The Mes-
siah with the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearics conducted by Pablo Mielgo; a Vivaldi recital with
Le Concert Spirituel at the Oratoire du Louvre. She also participates in the gala evening at the Salle
Gaveau with Em?ke Baráth, Chantal Santon Jeffery, Philippe Jaroussky, Emiliano Gonzalez Toro and
La Chimera.

She made her debut at the Opéra de Nancy with the role of Zulma in Rossini's L'Italiana in Algeri under
the direction of Giuseppe Grazioli and directed by David Hermann. Forumopera is once again enthu-
siastic: « We admire the talent with which Anthea Pichanick succeeds, thanks to her vocal and theatrical resources, in making of Zulma a one and only full character ». She took over this role at the Beaune Festival this time with the Ensemble Matheus and Jean-Christophe Spino- si. In Beaune, she also sang the role of Fernando in Handel's Rodrigo in Les Accents.

For the 2018/2019 projects, we can mention Bach's Christmas Oratorio under the direction of György
Vashegyi (Palace of Arts in Budapest, Chapelle Royale de Versailles, Saint-Roch Church in Paris), The
Messiah again with Hervé Niquet (Chapelle Royale de Versailles), concerts dedicated to the Bach and
Hasse family with Les Musiciens du Louvre, as well as Mozart's Requiem with the Choir and Orchestra
of the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon conducted by Lorenzo Viotti.

For the 2019/2020 projects, let us quote the very beautiful scenic production of the Coronis at the Théâtre de Caen with Le Poème Harmonique directed by Vincent Dumestre, which will then be repeated at the Lille opera, Rouen, Limoges and at the Théâtre d'Amiens and at the Comic Opera. She will perform Mozart's Requiem under the direction of György Vashegyi at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, as well as Rossini's La petite Messe in Paris again and Flagey with Hervé Niquet and the Spirituel Concert. She will find the Théâtre des Champs Elysées for the Dolce Tormento concert alongside Philippe Jaroussky, Emiliano Gonzalez Toro and Emöke Barath. It will be La Messagiera at the Capitole of Toulouse in the production of the Orfeo de Monteverdi. Finally, she will perform Carmina Burina with the Orchester National de Montpellier.

In the fall of 2017, Alpha Classics released the recording of the Messiah with Le Concert Spirituel and Hervé Niquet. His first record recital will be published in 2020 under the label La Musica.
