Having set out on the path to a musical career at the Hochschule für Musik ‘Hanns Eisler’ in Berlin, since 2012 Henriette has been continuing her studies with Professor Ieuan Jones of the Royal College of Music in London and at Cambridge University, where she won all three Instrumental Scholarships as well as a University Choral Scholarship. An award for young professional musicians from the London Philharmonia Orchestra's ‘Martin Musical Scholarship Fund’ allowed her to take the plunge and embark on a full-time harp performance course at the Royal College of Music in London. In the course of her harp studies, Henriette has also benefitted from master classes with Elizabeth Fontane-Binoche, Marie-Pierre Langlamet, Emmanuel Ceysson, Isabel Perrin, Catherine Michel, Marisa Robles, Park Stickney, Silvain Blassel, Sivan Magen, and others. Internationally established composers like Elżbieta Sikora and Maciej Małecki have written solo works for her. Apart from playing recitals, Henriette meanwhile enjoys herself as an orchestral and a chamber musician, is frequently invited to perform at public or private functions and has played at many well-known venues. She has given countless recitals in Britain, Germany, and Poland and performed as a soloist as well as in chamber music ensembles, and as an accompanist in Germany, Poland, England, Spain, and China. Some of her performances were recorded live by Deutschlandradio Kultur, by Polish Radio, and by TV stations in Poland, Germany, and in Spain. Of studio recordings the soundtrack for a TV thriller with the Young Babelsberg Film Orchestra in Berlin was the most interesting so far. Main 2017 projects so far included an engagement at the London College of Music for their chamber production of Steven Sondheim's A Little Night Music (the entire orchestral part being covered by a trio of piano, harp and cello). Henriette then was doubly privileged within the space of just a few days to perform in a Gala Concert for Marisa Robles at the RCM's Britten Theatre, and also to be involved in the exciting premiere of ground-breaking LOLA technology at the internationally highly successful Network Performing Arts Production Workshop and the 2017 Pulsar Festival playing a duo with a Danish musician live on stage in Copenhagen, herself equally visible and audible in Denmark (while physically remaining in the RCM's London recording studio) and with 'virtual' dancers projected into the concert hall from Barcelona – all lossless in perfect real-time. More conventionally, Henriette has won a number of harp competitions, notably First Prize at National Level in the renowned German ‘Jugend musiziert’ competition in 2011. In Britain, as well as being ‘Norfolk Young Musician of the Year’ runner-up in 2014, in 2015 she won the East Anglia Harp Festival for the third year running, each year winning the overall prize for ‘Most Expressive Performance’ as well as First Prize in her age group.
