Her early work included a wide variety of repertoire, from baroque music with Sir Roger Norrington, Sir John Eliot Gardiner and concerts and recordings with Nikolaus Harnoncourt, to contemporary works with the London Sinfonietta and David Atherton and work with Pierre Boulez, with whom she recorded and toured Messiaen's Poemes pour Mi with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
