The soloists of the Ensemble intercontemporain
Odile Auboin

Odile Auboin graduated from the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP) with top honors in two fields (alto and chamber music) in 1991. As the recipient of a Lavoisier Research Fellowship from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a grant from the Ministry of Culture, she studied at Yale University then went on to perfect her training with Bruno Giuranna at the Stauffer Foundation of Cremona in Italy, and was awarded at the Bucchi International Competition in Rome. In 1995, she joined the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Her interest in creation and position as soloist with the Ensemble Intercontemporain gave her the opportunity to work closely with major composers of the second half of the 20th century, such as György Kurtág and Pierre Boulez, with whom she recorded Le Marteau sans Maître for Deutsche Grammophon and created Anthèmes for alto at the Avignon Festival. She also works with composers from the new generation such as Ivan Fedele, Marin Matalon, Michael Jarrell and Bruno Mantovani. She is highly active in the field of chamber music and has premiered works by Bruno Mantovani, Marco Stroppa and Philippe Schœller. A penchant for transversality in the various forms of artistic expression has led her to participate in projects involving visual arts and dance. Her albums also include André Jolivet's Églogues as well as works by Bruno Mantovani.
Odile Auboin is a state certified music professor and teaches regularly at international academies in Paris, Aix-en-Provence, Lucerne and New York.
