Clara Blessing has gained an excellent reputation over the past few years as a specialist for historical instruments. Her playing "full of emotional warmth" (ksta) touches and inspires audiences and press in concert halls and at festivals worldwide.

The oboist can be heard in many different formations, and it is this versatility that she particularly loves: she regularly appears as a soloist in, for example, Johann Sebastian Bach's oboe concertos, performs chamber music alongside artists such as Isabelle Faust and Kristian Bezuidenhout and is a welcome guest with orchestras such as Concerto Köln, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, The English Concert and Arcangelo. Her musical focus is the repertoire of the Baroque and Classical periods, and recently she has increasingly focused on the later 19th century: she is involved in the "Wagner Lesarten Project" and was recently able to take over a collection of original romantic oboes, which she plans to present soon in a specially designed solo project.

Clara Blessing developed her enthusiasm for historical performance practice during her studies with Christian Schneider and Michael Niesemann, which she completed with the concert exam with distinction at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. Defining experiences at the beginning of her career were the award at the International Telemann Competition as the first musician in her field, the Academy Scheme of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and her membership in the European Union Baroque Orchestra. Clara Blessing was supported by the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben and Yehudi Menuhin "Live Music Now".

In addition to her playing, Clara's teaching activities are a matter close to her heart.: She teaches as a professor at the Musikhochschule Würzburg, Trossingen and Karlsruhe and regularly gives master classes in Germany and abroad. In 2021 she published the etudes for oboe with Edition Walhall, a collection of original practice pieces for baroque oboe, which is now very popular at home and abroad.
