Annegret Siedel

Baroque violin, viola d’amore, viola and violino piccolo

Since 1995, Annegret Siedel has played concerts as a soloist, as a chamber musician, and as the concert master of orchestras that perform baroque, classic and romantic music on historical instruments.

She widens her repertoire, develops programmes for concerts and performances, studies sources and is in contact with subject experts.

Her experience she passes on through lessons, and by holding seminars and courses.

Concerts with chamber music are increasingly taking up more space.
There are concerts with the Bell’arte Salzburg Ensemble and duo programmes with forte-piano, organ, harpsichord, lute or harp.

Annegret Siedel - Ute Gremmel-Geuchen

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a large number of arrangements throughout his life, transcriptions and "parodies". Annegret Siedel and the organist Ute Gremmel-Geuchen are experimenting in this field with great joy of playing, presenting a diverse spectrum of Bachs compositions as arrangements for violin and organ, for violin solo or organ solo.

J.S. BACHs WEGBEREITER, the CD program of music for solo violin shows the development of virtuoso polyphonic playing from a praeludium by Thomas Baltzar to Bach's Chaconne, the last movement of Partita No. 2 in D minor. This includes the Passacaglia by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber - the first extended set of variations that has survived - and Johann Paul Westhoff's Suite in A major, the first printed cyclical composition for solo violin.

With Bell’arte Salzburg Annegret Siedel has already been able to release fifteen CDs. In addition, there are recordings with chamber music partners Pieter can Dijk, Christian Skobowsky and Barbera Maria Willi.
