Elizabeth Field


Violinist Elizabeth Field, distinguished for her passionate and stylistic playing on both period and modern instruments, is the founder of The Vivaldi Project. Field is concertmaster of The Bach Choir of Bethlehem and also performs with a wide variety of ensembles throughout the US: from Washington DC’s acclaimed Opera Lafayette to the Sun Valley Summer Symphony. In addition to period instrument recordings for Hungaroton, Naxos, and Dorian, Field has performed and recorded regularly for Deutsche Grammophon with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.

Field holds a DMA from Cornell University in 18th-century performance practice, has held professorships at Sacramento State University and the University of California at Davis, and was a regular guest teacher at The Curtis Institute. She is an adjunct professor at George Washington University. Her DVD with fortepianist Malcolm Bilson, Performing the Score, explores 18th-century violin/piano repertoire and has been hailed by Emanuel Ax as both “truly inspiring” and “authoritative.”
