Anne Marie Dragosits – Cembalo, Orgel
„…es una clavecinista excepcional… Aúna tècnica y lyrismo como pocos son capàces“ (Scherzo 2017)
Anne Marie Dragosits studied harpsichord with Wolfgang Glüxam at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna and with Ton Koopman and Tini Mathot at the Royal Conservatory, The Hague. She has also taken master classes in basso continuo from Lars Ulrik Mortensen and Jesper Christensen.
She regularly performs as a soloist and a continuo player throughout Europe, playing with chamber music formations such as vivante, les sentimens, musica alchemica, Barocksolisten München or l’Arcadia, as well as with orchestras such as barucco, l´Orfeo Barockorchester, Marini Consort Innsbruck and Camerata Salzburg.
Anne Marie Dragosits appears on numerous recordings; her first solo cd with Italian harpsichord music from the seventeenth century was recorded on the original Giusti from 1681 in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg in November 2010. In September 2015 she recorded Froberger on an original Girolamo de Zenti (1658) in England, “avec discretion” was issued in February 2017 with Divox. In early 2019 “Le clavecin mythologique”, French high baroque music inspired by mythological figures, recorded on the original Taskin (1787) in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, was issued with the French label L’Encelade.
With vivante she was awarded first prize at the Schmelzer competition in Melk in 2005; since that time, the ensemble has performed at major European festivals such as the Resonanzen at Vienna’s Konzerthaus, the Festival van Vlaanderen in Bruges, the Residenzwoche München, Rheinvokal, Itinéraire Baroque or at the Villa I Tatti in Florence. In 2014 vivante was invited e.g. for the Utrecht Festival or at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg, vivante’s 2015 began with a Kapsperger-concert at the Resonanzen.
In June 2017 vivante & concerto delle dame opened the new temporary exhibition at the castle of Gesualdo / Avellino, which presents copies of instruments owned by Carlo Gesualdo, Principe di Venosa – as reconstructed after an inventory found in the Archivio segreto Vaticano.
In addition to her performances, she has been lecturing at the Kunstuniversität Graz, the Privatuniversität Konservatorium Wien, and the Mozarteum Salzburg.
