From 1994 to 2015 she was a member of the internationally renowned chamber music ensemble London Baroque - as first violin until the birth of the first child, and subsequently viola. Since 1988 she has been a member of Frans Brüggen‘s Orchestra of the 18th Century, touring and recording world-wide.
