Playing both modern and period instruments, Marie enjoys a varied musical path. Her passion and curiosity for early and contemporary music has increasingly brought her to investigate how these can meet, interact and merge.
As a co-principal violist in Basel Sinfonietta – orchestra specializing in contemporary music – she has enjoyed collaborations with musicians such as Laurie Anderson and Heinz Holliger. In that context she has performed throughout Switzerland, in Austria, France, Germany and Japan.
Marie is extensively dedicating herself to chamber music – in duo, trio and lately with the group Nordic Affect performing new music on period instruments. In addition she regularly plays with Concerto Copenhagen and several early music ensembles in Scandinavia. As a chamber musician she has guested Wiener Konzerthaus, MA Festival Brugge, Oude Muziek Utrecht, Skanu Mezs Festival Riga, l’Architasto Festival Rome, American Bach Summer Festival San Francisco, SUNY Albany and Spectrum New York.
Marie holds degrees from Musik-Akademie Basel and CNR de Rueil-Malmaison. She has been playing with several symphony- and opera orchestras including an internship in Saarländisches Staatsorchester, contracts with Copenhagen Phil and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra.
