Swiss flautist Eva Oertle and Bulgarian pianist Vesselin Stanev have been performing internationally as a duo since 2009.
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, for example with the violinist Ekaterina Frolova, the flautist Eva Oertle or the cellist Zoltán Despond. He has made numerous CD recordings for RCA, Sony Classical and the Bulgarian label Gega New.
The Swiss flutist Eva Oertle is active throughout Europe as a soloist and chamber musician. She plays with such internationally acclaimed orchestras as Il Giardino Armonico and Al Ayre Español. Her recitals have taken her to such major concert halls such 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 Cd's 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 practice 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.
