Susanna Nerantzi (Greek: Σουζάνα Νεράντζη; fl. 1830–1840) was a Greek pianist and composer, perhaps 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 the 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]
