About the research

Ann Cnop lets us to travel in time. Not by means of a real teletime machine, but thanks to a 'simple' violin and ancient scores. Through her research she makes the violin compositions of Beethoven, Brahms and Schubert sound as these musical masters themselves heard them at the time.

From the first moment Ann Cnop held a violin in her hands, it became her biggest passion. After becoming a professional concert violinist, she has found a way to combine her passion of music with her profound interest in historical performance practice. Currently Ann is conducting her doctoral research at the Ghent University on the violin technique of the 19th-century German speaking areas, focusing on the violin compositions of Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms.
