Maya Homburger

Born and educated in Zurich, Switzerland, Maya Homburger moved to England in 1986 to join John Eliot Gardiner’s English Baroque Soloists, Trevor Pinnock’s The English Concert and other period instrument groups. Ever since meeting the composer and solo bassist Barry Guy – on the occasion of an extended concert tour with Christopher Hogwood’s Academy of Ancient Music – she has devoted her time between managing his London Jazz Composers Orchestra, running their CD label MAYA Recordings and developing her own personal style on the baroque violin, specialising more and more in chamber music and solo performance.

She is leader of the groups The Chandos Baroque Players and Trio Virtuoso. In 1993 she recorded the twelve fantasies for solo violin by G.Ph.Telemann and in 1995 the six sonatas for violin and harpsichord by J.S. Bach together with Malcolm Proud. Having been invited to play Telemann for the Jazz Festival in Rive de Gier (France) she shared the concert with Barry Guy combining baroque and new compositions and improvisations. For this occasion they commissioned Buxton Orr and Giles Swayne to write pieces for baroque violin and double bass.

Other new works in her repertoire include Barry Guy’s compositions Celebration for solo violin, Ceremony for violin and tape and the duo Slow right arm by Roger Marsh for baroque violin and double bass. In 1996 Barry Guy and Maya Homburger moved to Ireland where they hope to contribute both to the early as well as the contemporary music scene.

Since then, they have continued to give concerts in many major Jazz, New Music and Baroque Music Festivals all over Europe. In 1999 Maya Homburger organised her own music Series in Dublin called "Now and Then". In 2000 she was one of the leaders and soloists for J.E. Gardiner’s Bach pilgrimage which took her to many of the most beautiful cathedrals and churches all over Europe where she performed 52 of Bach’s Cantatas.

The German label ECM has recently released the first CD of the Duo Homburger/Guy called "Ceremony" with works by Barry Guy and H.I.F.Biber for baroque violin and double bass.

Her instrument is an Italian baroque violin, made by Antonio dalla Costa, Treviso in 1740 which is in its original baroque condition.
