Susanna Nerantzi (fl. 1830-1840) was a Greek pianist and composer. It is thought[by whom?] that Susanna Nerantzi was born in Zakynthos, Greece. She is the earliest recorded modern Greek woman composer.[1] She studied piano and composition in Corfu under Nikolaos Mantzaros and composed works which were published by Francesco Lucca of Milan in 1839.[2] Some of her works are exhibited in the Music Museum of Philharmonic Society of Corfu.


Selected works include:

Les souvenirs (op.26)
Fantasia sulla romanza ‘Il lago di Como’ (op.27)
Regret pour la patrie (op.28)[2]
