Young viola player from Toulouse, Anna Sypniewski began playing the viola with Valérie Apparailly, thanks to who a true passion was born. After entering the Paris Conservatory in 2016 in Jean Sulem’s class, she continued her studies in Germany with violist Tatjana Masurenko, and is currently pursuing an Artist Diploma at the Colburn School in Los Angeles.
Anna won the First Prize at the National Competition for Young Violists at the age of 15 and received the Prize of the City of Ciboure and the Grand Prize of the Ravel Academy. She was selected to take part in the Verbier Festival Academy and the Villecroze Music Academy where she received advice from Lawrence Power, Antoine Tamestit and Miguel Da Silva.
As a passionate chamber musician and member of the Sypniewski trio, she has been invited to perform in numerous festivals: the Orangerie de Sceaux, the Raveliades de Ciboure, the Jeudis musicaux de Royan, the Festival du Périgord Noir, Août musical de Deauville, the Folle Nuit de Nîmes… She has already shared the stage with experienced musicians such as François Salque, François René Duchâble, Alexandre Kantorow or Denis Pascal.
The Sypniewski trio, which she founded in 2016 with her two sisters Caroline and Magdalena, allows her to explore the string trio repertoire more intensely. They have benefited from the advice of Krzysztof Chorzelski (Belcea Quartet), Gunter Pichler (Alban Berg Quartet), the Ebène Quartet, the Modigliani Quartet and the Diotima Quartet in numerous masterclasses. In 2021, they premiered Raphaël Sévère’s Partita for string trio at the Archives nationales de Paris.
Anna has recorded two albums with the Zoot collective, a meeting between a jazz octet and a string quartet. In 2019, she participates in the recording of the album Inveniendi by saxophonist Nicolas Arsenijevic, featuring works by Brahms, Busch but also world premieres by Ricardo Nillni and Jean-Baptiste Doulcet.
