Raphaële Soumagnas : voice

Raphaële Soumagnas has a fervent interest in early music in general, and particularly medieval music. As a singer, she has studied with leading exponents of these repertoires, such as Benjamin Bagby, Katarina Livljanic, Brigitte Lesne, Lucien Kandel and Patrizia Bovi. She studied at the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne, at the Royaumont abbey, in the Centro Studi Europeo di Musica Medievale Adolfo Broegg (Italy), and at the Paris Medieval Music Centre.

In the medieval repertoire she has performed with the ensembles Florens Rosa and Contrafacta and has been heard in numerous concerts, participating recently with the Dialogos ensemble and the program Speculus Majus, as part of the Musical Season of Royaumont Abbey.

Other musical genres interest her as well, including contemporary music. After the Tenebrae Responsorium by Gesualdo with the Alchimik ensemble and the Jesu Meine Freude motet by J. S. Bach, under the direction of Lucile de Trémiolle, she also interpreted the character of Yniold in Debussy’s opera Pelléas et Mélisande and lent her voice to the first performance of Lighting, a contemporary work by Samir Amarouche. In parallel with her singing activities, she has also been studying the cornetto with Serge Delmas and Jean Tubery at the CRR de Paris.
