In 2006 she received her diploma (DEM) from the Regional Conservatory of Paris (class of Olivier Gardon), sole first prize unanimously awarded with highest honors; the following year she obtained a Master’s Degree with highest honors in musicology from the University of Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV).

In 2012 she was awarded a Master’s degree in piano with highest honors from the National Superior Conservatory of Music and Dance of Lyon where she studied with Florent Boffard and Svetlana Eganian.

Author of numerous articles on the Second Viennese School and the American composer John Cage, in 2012 Anne de Fornel became a Doctor in Musicology at the University of Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV). Under the supervision of Jean-Yves Bosseur and Michèle Barbe, her dissertation is entitled: Art with Intention: The Role of Chance in the Musical Compositions, Visual Works and Exhibitions of John Cage (1951-1992). The same year she organized the international colloquium New Perspectives on the Work of John Cage at the University of Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV) and the concert « Living Art » at the CRR of Paris in celebration of the centenary of the birth of the composer.

Passionate about contemporary music, as a performer at the Academy of the Ensemble Modern in 2008, she participated in the Klangspuren Festival in Austria and the TransArt Festival in Italy. Among works dedicated to her are Moth by Andrea Agostini and 24 Haïku by Jean- Yves Bosseur. Invited to collaborate with the composer Robert Lemay in the « Chagall Performance Art Collaborative » in Boston in 2010, Anne de Fornel also inaugurated the French venue of Pétales de rêve dans le paravent du vieux moine by Henri Pousseur. The same year she founded the Ensemble Mesostics of which she is the artistic director and pianist. Her piano repertory covers a broad spectrum, from baroque to contemporary music: she recently performed as soloist with the Chamber Orchestra of Toulouse in a concert dedicated to J.S. Bach’s keyboard concertos for the Festival « Les Floraisons musicales »; she has recorded two contemporary works for piano solo and ensemble for the Integral Classic Label: Trame IV by Martin Matalon and Interstices by Philippe Hurel.
