Simone Eckert

When asked about her career aspirations at the age of eight, Simone Eckert replied: “gambist.” However, she turned a deaf ear to the warning to take up a real profession and now lives and works as a freelance musician near Hamburg.

Since her studies with Hannelore Mueller and Jordi Savall with a diploma in Early Music at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in 1990, she has been working as a gambist, artistic director, agent and manager of her ensemble Hamburger Ratsmusik, as well as musicologist, editor of newly discovered music for viola da gamba and music teacher in and around Hamburg. She gives concerts at prestigious festivals in Germany and many European countries, as well as in the USA, Japan, and China.
