about

Anna Lachegyi was born in Vác, Hungary, into a family of musicians. Ever since she started to play the cello at the age of five, chamber music and early music have been playing a significant part in her life. After receiving her degree in performance on the cello at the Debrecen Academy of Music in the class of Ditta Rohmann, her passion grew towards early music and the viola da gamba. In 2015 she was accepted at the Royal Academy of Music in The Hague (Netherlands) where she studied viola da gamba with Mieneke van der Velden and Philipp Pierlot, and baroque cello with Caroline Kang. She deepened her knowledge in masterclasses held by Jordi Savall, Laurence Dreyfus, Marianne Müller and Vittorio Ghielmi. She has been an active participant of early music life in Hungary and in The Netherlands as well, and founding member of the early music ensembles Ariadné Consort, La Favorita and S105.

She has performed with ensembles from all over Europe, such as Ricercar Consort (Belgium), Orfeo Baroque Orchestra (Hungary), Concerto Spiralis (Romania), Solamente Naturali (Slovakia) in numerous music festivals: Utrecht Early Music Festival (Netherlands), MA Festival (Belgium), Femas Early Music Festival of Sevilla (Spain), Ars Sacra Festival (Hungary), Early Music Festival of Csíkszereda (Romania), Szalone Dni Musyki (Poland), La folle journée (France).
