Additional Information

Christine Rutledge is a violist of varied talents and interests. She began her life-long love of viola in the 3rd grade in the Detroit Public Schools and had the great fortune of studying with several of the world’s greatest teachers, including Karen Tuttle, Michael Tree, William Preucil Sr., and David Holland. Her teaching career began at the University of Notre Dame, where she was also a member of the critically acclaimed Notre Dame String Trio. Since 1998, she has taught at the University of Iowa, where she is Professor of Viola. A decade ago Rutledge became fascinated with baroque style and scholarship. This led to studies of baroque viola with Stanley Ritchie, Robin Stowell, and Jane Starkman. Rutledge has performed on baroque viola and lectured about baroque performance style and technique throughout the US and abroad, including Europe, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. She recently completed a new performance edition for viola of Bach’s Six Suites for solo cello. She first published an edition of the suites in 2007, but has since been conducting research involving manuscript comparison of the handwriting of J. S. Bach and Anna Magdalena Bach, which forms the basis of her new edition. Rutledge founded Linnet Press Editions for Viola in 2007, which is devoted to scholarly-based performance editions and transcriptions of baroque works for viola.
