“a performer of great integrity and flair”
“a compelling performer who is developing as an artist of international stature”
Mirjam-Luise Münzel has studied recorder, historical performance and baroque cello in Germany, Spain and London and has recently received her Master’s degree with distinction at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
She was the winner of the international Biagio Marini competition Neuburg (Germany), semi-finalist of the international Telemann competition Magdeburg (Germany) and finalist of the Concours internationales des journees musiques anciennes Paris.
Mirjam was one of the Handel House Young Artists 2016 and her group Lux Musicae London has been selected for the 2016/ 2017 Brighton Early Music Festival scheme. Alongside realising projects with her own groups, she works with renown ensembles like The Feinstein Ensemble, The King’s Consort, The Flautadors or The Early Opera Company.
In 2016 and 2017, she was not only performing in London’s prestigious concert venues such as St George’s Hanover Square, St Martin-in-the-fields, Blackheath Halls, King’s Place and the Wigmore Hall, but concert tours brought her also to the Netherlands, Cornwall, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium and Iceland.
Alongside being a recorder soloist, experienced ensemble player and continuo cellist, Mirjam is a dedicated consort specialist. Together with her friend and colleague Roberta Diamond, she founded the mixed consort Lux Musicae London in 2014. They explore the profound relationship between text, voice and instruments in intimate consort playing, create imaginative programmes and have performed not only in Blackheath Halls and the Brighton Early Music Festival, but also in night clubs.
Another dream became true for Mirjam when she organised the successful Bach Club series together with the harpsichordist Satoko Doi - Luck, in collaboration with the London Bach Society. For these concerts, they brought more than 50 young talented musicians of the London early music scene together and performed several Bach cantatas under their musical direction.
When Mirjam is not performing, not planning and creating programmes or leading her ensemble, she writes articles and CD reviews for the well-known German recorder magazine “Windkanal”. She passionately reads poetry and loves cycling, walking or running through nature.
