Susanna Ogata, Violin
Susanna enjoys an active performance schedule in New England and beyond. She has been praised for “expressive melting between notes,” her sound described as “warm and rich of tone” (Fanfare), and “playing of electrifying energy, awesome technical command and rollicking dialogue” (Arts Fuse), where her concert appearance was distinguished as “Best Solo Performance of 2016.”
Dedicated to exploring music on historical instruments, Susanna has participated and soloed with the Handel and Haydn Society, where she serves as Assistant Concertmaster. She has also enjoyed performances with Arcadia Players, The Bach Ensemble, Sarasa, and the Boston Early Music Festival. Recent solo appearances include Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Beethoven’s Violin Concerto.
Susanna and St. Ann’s organist, Ian Watson, recently completed “the Beethoven Project,” surveying and recording the complete Sonatas for Fortepiano and Violin of Beethoven on period instruments, receiving praise in such publications as Fanfare, BBC Music Magazine, The Strad, Gramophone, and Early Music Review. The New York Times commended the duo for “elegant readings that are attentive to quicksilver changes in dynamics and articulation.”
