Meret Lüthi
Charismatic Bernese violinist Meret Lüthi knows how to inspire fellow musicians and audiences both musically and verbally. Since 2008, her unmistakable identity as artistic director, dramaturg and concertmaster has shaped the internationally-renowned period instrument orchestra of Bern, Les Passions de l’Ame. She has led the orchestra in guest appearances at the Lucerne Festival, the Tage Alter Musik Regensburg, the Schwetzinger Festspiele and the Musikfest Stuttgart, and has collaborated with artists such as Dorothee Oberlinger, Els Biesemans, Simone Kermes, Kristian Bezuidenhout and Nuria Rial.

Meret Lüthi received her training in her hometown with the violinists Monika Urbaniak-Lisik and Eva Zurbrügg, and achieved her teaching and concert diplomas with distinction. Her string quartet studies led her to Basel to Walter Levin, and she studied baroque violin with Anton Steck in Trossingen.

As a noted specialist in early music, Meret Lüthi is a regular guest at Radio SRF 2 Kultur and teaches baroque violin and historical performance practice at the Bern University of the Arts. In 2017 she was awarded the Music Prize of the Canton of Berne for her many years of outstanding musical achievements. Her artistic work is documented in recordings by Sony Music Switzerland and Ramée, which have twice been awarded the Diapason d’or.
