María Carrasco Gil began her musical education at the age of 8 in Tarazona, her hometown. In 2012 she graduated from the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón with the highest grades in violin and two years later she obtained a Master's degree in Pedagogy at the University of Zaragoza.

Her interest in early music led her to Bremen, Germany, where she studied baroque violin with Veronika Skuplik at the Hochschule für Künste. She is currently studying for a Master's degree with Prof Midori Sailer at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. 


Her career has been influenced by numerous musicians such as Juan Luis Gallego, Vera Martínez Mehner, the Cuarteto Quiroga, Enrico Onofri, Hiro Kurosaki and Philippe Herreweghe, with whom she has had the good fortune to study or be mentored by. 


Nowadays, her most important projects are her two ensembles: Marsyas Baroque and I Zefirelli, with whom she spends most of her time developing new musical ideas and touring Germany, Austria and Holland. Both ensembles are prizewinners of the most relevant competitions in Europe and are currently sponsored by prestigious institutions such as Eeemerging or the German Orchestra Foundation.


She has recorded for several German, Spanish and Austrian radio and TV broadcasters as a soloist and with small chamber music ensembles and has performed in the most important concert halls in Europe (Berlin Philharmonie, Brucknerhaus Linz, Auditorio Nacional Madrid, Prinzregententheater Munich...) as well as at renowned festivals such as Oude Muziek in Utrecht, Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik, Musikfest Bremen or Trigonale in Austria.


María is frequently invited to perform with ensembles such as Oltremontano, Weser Renaissance, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Bremer Barockorchester or Urgent Music, to name but a few.
