The 26-year-old soprano from Avignon has just won a Victoire de la Musique Classique in the «Lyrical Revelation of the Year» category, after being hailed a Classical Revelation by the perfomers’ rights society, ADAMI and carrying off the Gabriel Dessurget prize at the 2011 Aix-en-Provence Festival.
From the age of 8 through to her postgraduate studies, Julie Fuchs trained as a violinist with Mme Chantal Rodier at the Conservatoire d’Avignon. She then specialised in singing, in which she quickly excelled, studying for four years with Pierre Guiral, at the time the Conservatoire’s professor of singing and its director. She then enrolled at the Paris Conservatoire.
As essential to her career as this training has been, Julie Fuchs also brings other qualities to her performance. She is «intelligent, hard-working and humble» in the words of former singing teacher, who also emphasises that «Julie Fuchs’ extra strengths are her outstanding stage presence and a perfect mastery of English.»
Today, roles such as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro or Urgande in Amadis de Gaule de J-C Bach correspond perfectly to the quality of her voice, as did the title role in Acis et Galatée which she took in July 2011 for the Aix-en-Provence Festival. Over the coming decade, that voice and that stage presence will see her moving towards weightier roles, with the title role of La Traviata beckoning. She’s at the start of the big career, and one which we’ll be following with pleasure.
