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 Bellarte Salzburg Ensemble
and duo programmes with forte-piano, organ, harpsichord, lute or harp.
LATEST CD RELEASE - Johann Sebastian Bach: COPYRIGHT BACH
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 Bellarte 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.
