Fani Vovoni 

 

Fani Vovoni  was born in Athens in 1978. After finishing her studies with Helfried Fister in Klagenfurt in 2001, she went on to study at the Vienna University of Music in the class of Ernst Kovacic, from which she graduated with honors in March 2007.

She was a member of European Union Youth Orchestra (2000,2001) and  European Union Baroque Orchestra in 2004 where she intensively explored so-called “early music”. 

The musical balance to the focus on early music is given by the continuous occupation with contemporary music, allways trying to find aestical analogies.

She is regularly collaborating and performing with the fortepianist Richard Fuller. Since 2014 she has a permanent collaboration as a concertmaster  with  the Teatro Nacional di Sao Paolo and Maestro Martinho Lutero and his Camerata Paulistana working on baroque and classical repertoire.. Her teaching activity brought her at the festival Mozaik in Albania, at the conservatory of Klagenfurt and at the greek festival Music Village in Aghios Lavrentios where she held workshops in the field of baroque violin, early chamber music and baroque orchestra. Currently she is teaching violin and ensemble at the conservatory Freie Musikschule in Vienna.
