CORINA MARTI’s performances have been praised as ‘strikingly superior and expressive’ (Toccata) and ‘infallible’ (Diapason). After graduating in Baroque music performance on the recorder and harpsichord from the Lucerne Academy of Music, she focused on early flutes and Late Medieval / Early Renaissance repertoire, in which she gained a degree from the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basle (Switzerland) under the guidance of Pierre Hamon and Kathrin Bopp. 

Corina Marti has extensively performed, recorded and taught Late Medieval and Early Renaissance repertoires throughout Europe and the Middle East. In 2003, she was invited to join the faculty of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis as a tutor for early flutes and keyboard instruments. Her performances on these instruments and research into their history and construction have contributed to their revival among performers. 

She also enjoys later repertoires, appearing as soloist and together with chamber music formations and orchestras (including Jordi Savall’s Hesperion XXI and La Capella Reial de Cataluña) performing Renaissance, Baroque and contemporary repertoire.

With ensemble La Morra, of which she is co-director, Corina Marti has recorded several enthusiastically received CDs of fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century music (including the complete works of Johannes Ciconia, awarded Diapason d’Or). Her ongoing interest in the earliest instrumental music has resulted in a CD release devoted to German repertoire of the late fifteenth- / early sixteenth-century (Von edler Art, Ramée, 2008, together lutenist with Michal Gondko) and a new solo CD I diettosi fiori, Ramée. Her discography of post-1500 music includes recordings devoted to Early Baroque instrumental music from Lombardy, music by the Italian-Jewish composer Salomone Rossi (1570-c1630), flute sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach and – most recently – flute concertos by Francesco Mancini. She also performs with the ensemble Duo Marti-Vicens performing repertoire for  early keyboard instruments on organetto and clavicymbalum.
