With the Isos Quartet she made a recording of the Bruch string quartets, in 1997.

In 1990 she started a long musical relationship with Dutch pianist Ronald Brautigam, in the 23 years they have collaborated so far they made 10 recordings.

From 2006 till 2012 she was member of the Leopold String Trio; the most recent  recordings were with Tanejev Trio's and Bach’s Goldberg Variations for the label Hyperion.

Since 2011 she has her own Tango Nuevo  quartet, the Isabelle van Keulen Ensemble, with Christian Gerber, bandoneon, Ulrike Payer, piano and Rüdiger Ludwig, double bass.
