Susanne Scholz


When, in 1990, Susanne Scholz started to play on "historical" instruments, she also started her research on different matters within the performance practice field.
Parallel to her artistic career, her teaching activities on historical violin instruments, chamber music, orchestra and opera projects, she read on Ornamentation, Source Reading, and Repertoire Studies at the universities and conservatories she was teaching.
Susanne Scholz has lectured in Germany, Italy, the USA, Belgium, Taiwan, Italy, France, Finland, Latvia and Switzerland, on special arguments related to historical performance practice, has published many articles and has organized conferences at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Leipzig and is taking actively part in the conferences organized by the University of Art Graz.
The realization of her artistic research has led to CD productions with her ensemble chordae freybergenses and to a very special recording of the Sonatas Opus V by Arcangelo Corelli with her harpsichord partner Michael Hell (released by Querstand in 2015 and 2018.
From 2018 Susanne is working on her doctoral theses.
