Susanna Ogata enjoys an active performance schedule in greater New England and beyond.   She has participated in concerts and appeared as soloist with the Bach Ensemble led by Joshua Rifkin, Arcadia Players, Newton Baroque, and Blue Hill Bach and the Handel and Haydn Society where she serves as Assistant Concertmaster. With fortepianist Ian Watson, she has embarked on The Beethoven Project to survey the complete Sonatas for Fortepiano and Violin of Beethoven.  The first three volumes have been recently released on the CORO label receiving praise for “elegant readings that are attentive to quicksilver changes in dynamics and articulation. Their performance of the Sonata No. 4 in A minor is darkly playful, their 'Kreutzer' Sonata brilliant and stormy.” (New York Times). In June, they made their European debut at the Tage Alter Musik festival at the acclaimed in Regensburg, Germany. Ms. Ogata's teachers have included Charles Castleman and Laura Bossert, and she has studied baroque violin with Dana Maiben.
