She plays regularly with well-known ensembles in the most important halls and festivals worldwide. Already during her studies, Reinhard Goebel engaged her for his legendary ensemble Musica Antiqua Köln. As a member of the ensemble, she spent the following seven years giving concerts all over the world as a violinist and viola player in the orchestra, the chamber music formation, and as a soloist.
Equipped with such international concert experience, inspiring advice, as well as the strive to realize her own ideas, she founded NeoBarock. As the artistic director, she developed concert formats and CD productions, which have been welcomed by the international critic as new highlights and honoured, amongst others, with the ECHO Klassik prize. With the latest CD Metamorphose, Maren Ries presents her reconstructions of the presumed versions of Bach’s lost trio sonatas.
Unfortunately, she rarely has the time to pursue her other passions, such as reading a good book or sitting at her sewing machine, designing the newest outfits for NeoBarock.
