Terrific news from Australian flautist, Ana de la Vega. It is a busy time for the Trust with a full calendar of concerts coming up. Ana’s concert with the English Chamber Orchestra shouldn’t be missed.
I write to you from Hamburg where I have rehearsals this weekend. I have just returned from an 11 concert sold-out tour of Australia which was simply fantastic. I was the first time I have played in Australia in 10 years and so very sentimental.I am playing another concerto with the English Chamber Orchestra next Sunday 31st May at 7:30pm at the Kings Place. I play the Mozart Flute Concerto In D and the Mozart Andante in C.
As a proud Australian Ana is the artistic director of the London International Players who have just had a rave review in The STRAD, and her solo career has seen her onto many of Europe’s most prestigious stages!
Ana de la Vega, Biography
Few flautists of her generation have performed so extensively worldwide as soloist and chamber musician. Ana de la Vega’s recent Wigmore Hall debut was reviewed as ‘Outstanding’ (Classical Source), her Cadogan Hall London performance as ‘true artistry’ (Musical Opinion), and her Berlin Philharmonie debut as ‘first-class’.
Ana was student of the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris where studied for her Premier Prix under Catherine Cantin, as well as with Philippe Pierlot and Raymond Guiot. At the age of 23 she won the position of Principal Flute with the Orquestra Sinfonica do Norte in Portugal. Since then she has held Principal Flute positions with the EPK Europa Philharmonie in Baden-Württemberg in Germany, and the Philharmonie der Nationen in Hamburg.
Ana is founder and artistic director of the London International Players, a dynamic London ensemble which brings together the finest musicians of her generation. On the wings of her dynamism they have already in their first season performed in Europes greatest halls to high regard, making headlines in the UK and abroad with their ‘explosive and ‘dazzling’ performances (World Of Classical Music, Wigmore Hall review).
“With tremendous élan and vitality, de le Vega revealed her artistry…”
