Eva Boesch, Cello

Eva Boesch was born in Zürich, Suisse in 1985. She studied Violoncello at the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste in the class of Martina Schucan and graduated in the summer of 2008. At the moment she is continuing her studies at the Musikhochschule Köln with Maria Kliegel.

She received important impulses in mastercourses taught by David Geringas, Jens-Peter Maintz, Miklós Perényi, Siegfried Palm and Pieter Wispelwey.

A central aspect of her musical development is her intensive involvement in contemporary classical music. The opportunity to work with composers like Salvatore Sciarrino, Jonathan Harvey or Klaus Huber on their works for cello solo or chamber music definitely put a mark on her way to think about music. Eva Boesch played at the ISCM "World New Music Days", the "Days for New Music" Zürich, the Impuls '09 (with the International Ensemble Academy for Contemporary Music Graz), the "European Workshop for Contemporary Music" and the "Lucerne Festival Academy" under Pierre Boulez.

Since 2009 she is cellist of the Ensemble Garage.

Eva Boesch was awarded the first prize at the Koeckert-competition in Zürich in 2007. She holds scholarships of the Friedl Wald-foundation Basel and the Kunststiftung NRW.
