Elisabeth Charlotte Berger is a multiple first prize winner of national and international competitions and was honoured in this context with a variety of awards and scholarships.

She is considered as one of the foremost recorder players of her generation in Germany.

Having studied at the music universities of Cologne, Linz (Austria) and Würzburg, among others with Günther Höller, Dorothee Oberlinger, Carin van Heerden and Michael Niesemann, she focussed her studies on historically informed performance with period instruments. During this time she held a scholarship of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation for exceptionally talented students.

Live recordings and interviews about her work were broadcast by multiple German Radio stations. Her debut CD “700”, which was released in 2012 and gives an outstanding overview about seven centuries of music for recorder, was celebrated by the press.

Charlotte´s career as an internationally acknowledged soloist is accompanied by a career in various renowned international baroque orchestras that only perform historically informed and with period instruments.

With her relocation to South Africa, she´s now one of very few experts in this field in the country and is looking forward to sharing her expertise.
