Edwin Fardini


Nominated in the category of «Révélation Artiste Lyrique» at the Victoires de la Musique Classique 2023, most promising Artist 2019 of the ADAMI and graduate of the CNSMD in Paris where he studied vocal art with Malcolm Walker, Valérie Guillorit and Élène Golgevit, the young baritone Edwin Fardini was early offered engagements as a soloist with prestigious orchestras and institutions. An evidence to this – his debut at the prestigious Teatro alla Scala in Milan (as Pâris in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette), at the Théâtre de l’Opéra Comique (Furie/Tisiphone in Hippolyte et Aricie), and the Orchestre de Paris in Schumann’s Manfred and Mendelssohn’s Erste Walpurgisnacht, amongst others.
At the end of 2020, while the global health disaster was at its height, Edwin founded Elisha with his friend and jazz musician Yessaï Karapetian – a collective of avant-garde artists working to cultivate new spaces for dialogue via creative processes deeply inspired by ‘creoleness’ and ‘diversity’. The collective Elisha is a laureate of the state program Mondes Nouveaux – France Relance (2021) for TERRE, transdisciplinary artistic project in 6 parts, selected among more than 3000 other proposals. In this context, Edwin works as a producer, director, artistic coordinator, author and playwright.
Edwin has been the laureate of Royaumont Abbey Foundation, Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation and in 2021 won the First Prize at the 3rd Voix des Outre-mer Competition. The very first recording of several important pieces of Olivier Greif, in which he took part of, was awarded a “Diapason d’or 21/22” as well as a “Choc Classica 2022”.
