Irmgard Schaller has specialised in period performance practice for over thirty years. During this time she has accumulated a vast wealth of experience with some of Europe's finest ensembles in the field, such as Frans Brüggen's Orchestra of the 18th Century and London Baroque. With this experience and background, in combination with her natural inclination, she has developed a personal, expressive style of playing "... her heartfelt delivery created a sense of ecstasy and structural magnitude ..."
