Elisabeth Zeuthen Schneider  

violin

Elisabeth Zeuthen Schneider studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Music under professors Milan Vitek and Endre Wolf. She also studied in the USA under, among others, Isidore Cohen (of the Beaux Arts Trio), Stanley Ritchie (Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University) and Alexander Schneider (the Budapest Quartet). For a number of years, Elisabeth Zeuthen Schneider was associate concertmaster of the Royal Danish Orchestra and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. She now combines her performing career with her teaching post as associate professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, where she has been a driving force in establishing the Early Music Department. For three years she led the Baroque String Orchestra and was responsible for acquiring early string instruments and bows for the academy. In addition to her violin and chamber music teaching, she is currently setting up a Junior Division at the Royal Academy of Music and is introducing new subjects in String Pedagogy. She is a faculty member of the Nordic Music Academy (with Nikolaj Znaider) and one of the five teacher/performers of the Thy Master Class Chamber Music Festival, which in November 2006 was featured in The Strad under the headline: “A Little Paradise.” She masters a wide-ranging repertoire for violin/keyboard and has released a number of CDs.
