...:Concertmaster Annegret Hoffmann

After completing her degrees in violin and music education in  Saarbrücken (GER) Annegret Hoffmann specializes in Early Music and studies with Enrico Gatti in Piacenza (IT) and Den Haag (NL). It is there that she completes her Master of Music in baroque violin (minor: voice). Her Master Research deals with the role of rhetoric in 17th-century instrumental music. Convinced of the intimate connection between music and language she founds her ensemble commuSicare and produces her first CD. As a singer she also explores Gregorian chant and medieval polyphony as well as their forms of notation (La Cappelletta). Annegret Hoffmann is internationally active as a baroque violinist and collaborates with personalities like Sigiswald and Barthold Kuijken, Reinhard Goebel, Enrico Gatti, Elizabeth Wallfisch, Michael Chance and Christina Pluhar. As concertmaster she regularly coaches ensembles in historically informed performance practice.
