Susanna Pisana started to learn violin with her father when she was young. She continued studying with Norbert Brainin, leader of the Amadeus Quartet, focusing her attention on chamber music. She has performed in the most important auditorium in Rome (Parco della Musica, Teatro Argentina, Auditorium Foro Italico, Teatro Olimpico, Teatro Globe, Teatro di Documenti), Milan (Pomeriggi Musicali, Teatro dell’Arte) and festivals such as Ancient Music Festival in Urbino, Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte in Montepulciano, Società Barattelli in L’Aquila and many others. She made a thorough study of the philological practice of baroque music on original instruments (she plays a Bernardo Calcagni, around 1740), performing even with the Concerto Italiano by Rinaldo Alessandrini. Thanks to the attention to the performance practice she developed a deep interest in contemporary music, collaborating with the Freon Group and the “G. Petrassi” chamber ensemble. In 2006 she performed on live radio with the Michelangelo Quartet at the Paolina Chapel of the Quirinal Palace, in the presence of Giorgio Napolitano, President of the Italian Republic. From 1991 to 2007 she was a violin teacher and concertmaster at the Folk Music School of Testaccio in Rome.
