Ragna Schirmer gives concerts in the most important halls across Europe, China and New Zealand as well as at renowned festivals. She has performed with Zubin Mehta, Sir Roger Norrington, Kurt Masur, Sir Neville Marriner, Herbert Blomstedt and others and has performed with orchestras such as the Munich Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Orchestre National de France, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
