Barbara Arens

Barbara Arens (*1960) is a passionately dedicated piano teacher. She began her studies at the Mozarteum in Salzburg at the age of 13, her favourite professor being Nikolaus Harnoncourt. After a concert career performing primarily as a harpsichordist and organist, Barbara Arens returned to the piano with renewed enthusiasm.

Now she enjoys putting her diverse abilities and experience into composing for her piano pupils - her aim is to write pieces as playable, yet as expressive as possible.

Five scores of hers have been published by Breitkopf & Härtel and by Elena Cobb. Editions Musica Ferrum are proud to have published two works of her, so far, titled Rendezvous with Midnight, All Beautiful and Splendid Thingsand two works, composed in collaboration with Alison Mathews, titled Capturing the Spirit of Christmas and Capturing the Joy of Winter.

Mrs. Arens presently lives near Würzburg, Germany, after living in Beirut, Dallas, San Francisco, Singapore, Salzburg, London, and Munich.
