Margit-Anna Süß

Professor Margit-Anna Süß has held a masterclass in Sibelius Academy, Helsinki Finland, on 2nd – 3rd of May 2008. She is an inspiring teacher. Her knowledge of the harp music is comprehensive. I warmly recommend Mrs. Süß for the professor of the harp.

Since all of my years as a member of the Berlin Philharmonic I had the pleasure hearing Mrs. Süß playing harp in my orchestra at many occasions with Claudio Abbado, Simon Rattle and other conductors. My impression of her as a player was always very convincing and absolutely professional in a very positive meaning. As we participated at a musical festival in which we both conducted master-classes for our instruments I could notice her special skills and affection in her teaching of young students of harp and could see how fast those students develop in only very few days.

I know Margit-Anna Süß for more than 20 years. In this time I have played a lot of chambermusic and soloistic music with her. She is an excellent harpist on highest international level who is especially familiar with the music of French impressionism and a large range of other repertoire. Together with the musicians of Ensemble Wien-Berlin we have also recorded several CDs with DGG and SONY CLASSICAL with french repertoire of Debussy and Ravel and also Mozart. I also could experience her skills as teacher since one of her students – Sarah Christ – was engaged at Wiener Staatsoper and also played on very high level within the orchestra.

I have had the pleasure to hear Mrs. Süß on many occasions and in the most excellent musical surroundings, such as the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra or the Bamberger Symphoniker. She always was displaying highest skills of both, solo and ensemble performance. In addition I had many chances to get involved in discussions about musical matters with her. I am convinced that her high intellectual standard together with her very stable personality make her an ideal candidate for the position in question.
