After her MA, Susanne went to London to study with William Pleeth.

She did masterclasses with Paul Tortelier, Boris Pergamenschikow, Heinrich Schiff, Natalia Gutman, Arto Noras and János Starker.

 

In 1993 she was offered the sub-principal position No 4 in the Northern Sinfonia and subsequently in 1995 the co-principal position in the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

 

Susanne also was invited to guest lead the cello section of other orchestras like the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Northern Sinfonia, the Hallé Orchestra in Manchester, the Flanders Filharmonic in Antwerp or the Vienna Chamber Orchestra to name a few.

Susanne was invited by Sir Georg Solti to lead the cello section of the World Orchestra for Peace in 1996 and continued to tour with them for eight years.

 

She played chamber music concerts with different ensembles over the years, with the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Wigmore Hall in London, the Konzerthaus in Vienna and the Bunka Kaikan Hall in Tokyo being some of her most favorite venues.

 

She has recorded solo and chamber music for the BBC, Opera Rara, EMI, Chandos and Hessischer Rundfunk to name a few.
