Susanna Borsch is one of the few instrumentalists able to interpret both contemporary and early music with complete ease. She studied at the Amsterdam Conservatorium with Walter van Hauwe with her final solo examination in the year 2000. Her first solo CD from 2006 featured many new works for recorder and live-electronics written especially for her. She plays in many different ensembles: Mezzaluna, a recorder ensemble committed to exploring the depth of 16th century renaissance vocal polyphony. Susanna also plays with Hexnut, a band formed in 2004 comprising the unusual combination of flute, recorder, trumpet, voice and piano; and ELECTRA, an all-female modern music ensemble combining the latest music with visual and theatrical elements. Since 2009 Susanna plays in Dapper’s Delight, a duo of recorder and anglo concertina, formed to explore popular dance music and songs of the period 1550-1750, particularly pieces that are found in both high and low cultural sources.
