Born in Donaueschingen, Southern Germany, and established since 1993 in Greece, the German flautist Katrin Zenz plays a central rôle in the performance of contemporary Greek flute music. Her research in the use of extended techniques has brought her into close contact with many composers and subsequently a number of works have been dedicated to her. She is a founding member of the Vivier Trio, the Ensemble Actis, the Ensemble 2:13 and the Trio Windbruecke, as well as being a member of the Ensemble Köln, the Athens Camerata, the Ensemble Skalkottas, and of various ensembles of free improvisation. Her encounter with Peter-Lukas Graf has been decisive for deepening her musical and flautistic knowledge during the last years. She is Assistant Professor for flute in the Department of Music at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki. She has recorded music for flute by Iannis Ioannidis (Greek Music Society 1998), Anastassis Philippakopoulos (Edition Wandelweiser 2006), and numerous other Greek composers.
