The Hitchcock Trio

Das Hitchcock Trio consists of
Anke Dennert, Spinett
Simone Eckert, Viola da Gamba
Gabriele Steinfeld, Violin

Anke Dennert, the renowned specialist for historical keyboard instruments, studied with Robert Kohnen in Brussels and Andreas Staier in Cologne, as well as with Gisela Gumz in Hamburg for the concert exam on the harpsichord and clavichord. Since then, she has made regular appearances as a continuo player and soloist with the Hamburger Ratsmusik, La Porta Musicale, Ensemble Obligat, and baroque orchestras in Europe and the USA.

CD recordings for GENUIN on original instruments from Hamburg museums attest to her particular interest as a soloist for North German masters. The musician devotes herself to the revival of forgotten works, especially those by women composers. Anke Dennert teaches historical keyboard instruments and basso continuo at the Hamburg Conservatory.

When asked about her career aspirations at the age of eight, Simone Eckert replied: “gambist.” However, she turned a deaf ear to the warning to take up a real profession and now lives and works as a freelance musician near Hamburg.

Since her studies with Hannelore Mueller and Jordi Savall with a diploma in Early Music at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in 1990, she has been working as a gambist, artistic director, agent and manager of her ensemble Hamburger Ratsmusik, as well as musicologist, editor of newly discovered music for viola da gamba and music teacher in and around Hamburg. She gives concerts at prestigious festivals in Germany and many European countries, as well as in the USA, Japan, and China.

Gabriele Steinfeld studied violin at the Berlin University of the Arts with Kolja Blacher, in Detmold with Mathias Tacke and baroque violin in Frankfurt with Petra Müllejans. After her studies, the musician worked in Rome, the center of baroque violin virtuosos, with Concerto Italiano as well as with Concerto Köln and Musica Antiqua Köln.

Since 2007 she has been living once again in Hamburg, working as a freelance musician. She performs with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, the Hamburger Ratsmusik, La Porta Musicale, Elbipolis Barockorchester Hamburg, Capella Augustina, and La Chambre Philharmonique, Paris. She has taken part in over 50 CD recordings and can be heard regularly in Germany and abroad in concerts, radio and television appearances as a soloist and ensemble member.
