Curriculum Vitae

Corina Marti initially studied baroque and renaissance flutes and harpsichord. Her love of medieval and early Renaissance music led her to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where she completed her studies with Pierre Hamon and Kathrin Bopp with a diploma.

The recorder and harpsichord player Corina Marti is internationally recognized for her "remarkable, outstanding and expressive interpretations" (Toccata) and her "infallible performances" (Diapason).

Her performances as a soloist, ensemble musician and teacher regularly take her throughout Europe, North and South America as well as to the Middle and Far East. Performances with numerous ensembles (including Hespèrion XXI, Coro della Radiotelevisione Svizzera Italiana, Kore and the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra) complement her role as founding member and artistic co-director of La Morra, a multi-award winning ensemble for late medieval and early renaissance music that "always keeps the listener's attention alive" (Gramophone).

Her extensive discography and repertoire ranges from 14th century istanpitte and Renaissance intavolations to solo repertoire and High Baroque chamber music - and beyond.

She is a leading pioneer in the reconstruction of keyboard instruments and recorders from the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance, working with instrument makers to realize her designs and spending many hours in libraries researching the repertoire. This work has contributed significantly to the current revival of these aspects of instrument making and musical culture.

In 2019, Corina Marti was awarded the Medal of the City of Lublin in recognition of her outstanding artistic activity and services to the dissemination of Polish culture and the promotion of the city of Lublin in Poland and abroad.

Immediately after graduating, she was appointed as the first lecturer for medieval recorder at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel and has been teaching there since 2003. A few years later, she set up a class for medieval keyboard instruments there and has been teaching organetto, clavisimbalum, clavicytherium and Renaissance harpsichord since 2007. She enjoys passing on her knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to the next generation of players, both through her teaching at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and at master classes and music courses around the world.
