Bettina Danielle Berger (*born in Basel in 1981) studied flute at the Zurich Music Academy and the University of the Arts in Berlin under Marianne Stucki, Annette von Stackelberg and Philippe Racine. Also providing a formative influence were her many years of studying under Robert Dick and the master classes of Felix Renggli, Aurèle Nicolet and Bartold Kuijken.
Numerous chamber music and orchestral projects allowed her to meet composers like Wolfgang Rihm, Toshio Hosokawa, Isabel Mundry, Daniel Ott, Frank Michael Beyer and Rudolf Kelterborn and conductors like Michael Gielen, Peter Hirsch, Stefan Asbury and Franck Ollu. Berger is particularly interested in exchanging ideas and collaborating with composers of her own generation for whom she has realized numerous debut performances. She is also very involved in free improvisation as well as Old Music and has for several years played the German flute.
Bettina Danielle Berger has won several prizes and scholarships and has been sponsored since 2001 by the Swiss Study Foundation.
