“Without music life would be a mistake.”

~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche





Liv Heym

Liv Heym, whose chamber music playing has been described as “elegant and sensual, stylishly wild” by the New Yorker, enjoys a versatile career on both the modern violin and the baroque violin and viola.  Recent engagements include the inaugural edition of William Christie’s music festival “Dans les Jardins de William Christie” in La Vendée, France and concerts with the Irish Baroque Orchestra and Monica Huggett. She was a member of the European Union Baroque Orchestra during its touring season 2011 and joined the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment Apprenticeship Scheme in 2012 working under Simon Rattle, Laurence Cummings and Roger Norrington.

A native of Berlin, Germany, Ms. Heym studied Violin and Chamber Music with Heinz Dinter, Ulrike-Anima Mathé and Daniel Phillips. Masterclasses with Andràs Schiff and Chamber Music studies with Eberhard Feltz were important artistic influences. She holds degrees in music education and performance on modern violin from the Hochschule für Musik Detmold as well as a Master in Historical Performance from the Juilliard School as a student of Monica Huggett and Cynthia Roberts.

Ms. Heym is a member of several New York based baroque ensembles such as Trinity Baroque Orchestra and the Clarion Society and a founding member of Siren Baroque.  Interested in the interactive possibilities of music with other art forms, she has created her own Concert Series “Music in Dialogue” at WMP Concert Hall.
