Henriette Scheytt has been a member of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe since 1992. She studied the violin and the baroque violin in Freiburg, London and Berlin. During her studies, she received scholarships from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and the DAAD.
An important facet of her career has been a keen interest in and study of both historical and contemporary music performance practice. As a result, Henriette's solo and chamber music repertoire encompasses a wealth of music and musical styles from Biber to Boulez, and she is a much sought-after chamber music partner and collaborator in a wide spectrum of musical activities and events.
This diversity is also reflected in her invitations to coach ensembles, and her work as guest leader has included projects with the Balthasar-Neumann-Ensemble, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the Kammerakademie Potsdam, the Orchestre de Chambre de Genève, Le Concert Lorrain and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
Since 2007, Henriette has become increasingly involved in the Free Improvisation scene in Berlin, where she currently resides.
Henriette is a fully-trained Shiatsu practitioner and an accredited member of the "Gesellschaft für Shiatsu in Deutschland" (GSD).
