Since 1995 Annegret Siedel has performed as a freelance soloist, in chambermusic groups and as leader of orchestras that perform Baroque, Classical and Romantic music on historical instruments. She expands her versatile violin repertoire with concertos for the viola d'amore, parts for the viola and violino piccolo.
