Dr. Augusta Campagne taught harpsichord and basso continuo at the mdw-University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna for over 30 years. She studied at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and regularly performed as a soloist and with various ensembles and participated in many recordings. Her first investigations into early basso continuo were published in the Basler Jahrbuch für Historische Musikpraxis XIX 1995. Further research has led her to thoroughly explore keyboard intabulations and (short) scores, specifically intended to be played together with singers and/or other instrumentalists. She regularly presents the results of her research at conferences and holds workshops at music institutions throughout Europe and the USA. In 2018, "Simone Verovio: Music Printing, Intabulations and Basso Continuo in Rome around 1600", a revised version of her PhD (2015), appeared in print. She is also co-editor of “Cantare nel gravicembalo,” an extended conference report to be published in 2023.
