Elizabeth Field

I perform regularly on both modern and baroque violin and am particularly interested in translating baroque and classical performance-practice to modern instruments. Along with my colleague and cellist, Stephanie Vial, I direct the Institute for Early Music on Modern Instruments (EMMI) http://modernearlymusic.org/ and am director and concertmaster of The Vivaldi Project, a period instrument ensemble dedicated to presenting 17th- and 18th-century string repertoire. I am also concertmaster of The Bach Choir in Bethlehem PA where we enjoy Bach on modern instruments and the newly formed period instrument ensemble in Kansa City called the Spire Chamber Ensemble.

I received a DMA in Historical Performance Practice from Cornell University in 1999. My dissertation traced the performing traditions of Bach's solo Sonatas and Partitas from 1702 to the present by comparing 15 of the nearly 50 extant editions.

I am currently Associate Professor of Violin at George Washington University.
