Pianist Vesselin Stanev and flautist Eva Oertle perform a concert celebrating music by female composers from Fanny Mendelssohn to Mélanie Bonis, alongside Brahm’s Sonata No. 2 in E flat major, a piece originally written for clarinet.

About Vesselin Stanev

The pianist Vesselin Stanev, who is originally from Varna (Bulgaria), studied at the Music Academy in Sofia, with Dmitri Bashkirov at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, with Alexis Weissenberg and at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris. Further inspiration came from Peter Feuchtwanger in London. The Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and the Concours Marguerite Long – Jacques Thibaud saw him as a prize-winner. He regularly performs in major concert halls in Europe, such as the Wigmore Hall in London, the Philharmonie Berlin, the Gewandhaus Leipzig or the Salle Gaveau in Paris. He also travels to the Nordic countries, to Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, Russia and Japan. He devotes particular attention to chamber music, with  violinist Ekaterina Frolova, tflautist Eva Oertle and cellist Zoltán Despond. He has made numerous CD recordings for RCA, Sony Classical and the Bulgarian label Gega New.

About Eva Oertle

The Swiss flautist Eva Oertle is active throughout Europe as a soloist and chamber musician. She plays with internationally acclaimed orchestras as Il Giardino Armonico and Al Ayre Español. Her recitals have taken her to such major concert halls as the Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, and the Musikverein in Vienna.

As a soloist her credits include performances with the Brandenburg String Orchestra, the Davos Festival Orchestra, and the Festival Strings Lucerne, among other ensembles, and she has undertaken concert tours to Germany, Italy, Spain, and South America. Her CDs Undine and Lake Reflections (on Sony Classical) have both garnered much praise in the music press. Eva Oertle studied modern flute at the Music Academies of Freiburg and Basel with such mentors as Janek Rosset, Felix Renggli, and Peter-Lukas Graf. Her interest in historically informed performance  subsequently led her to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and to London, where she studied with Rachel Brown. Eva Oertle also serves as a host and music editor for Radio SRF2 Kultur.
