Steven's encore was Chonguri by Sulkhan Tsintsadze for all you encore nerds out there. 20 points if you knew that already.
We are pleased to announce, after a two year audition process, that Luise Buchberger has been appointed as our new Co-Principal Cellist.
Luise was born in Frankfurt and began playing period instruments while studying in Salzburg under Clemens Hagen, from 2003 to 2007. She has been a member of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe since 2009 and plays as guest principal cello for a number other of orchestras including Spira mirabilis and Scottish Chamber Orchestra. Today she is equally in demand as chamber musician, soloist and continuo cellist.
Luise told us, “I am delighted and honored to have been made a member of the OAE family, and I look forward to all the exciting challenges to come.”
Luise will perform as Principal cellist with the OAE in June at Glyndebourne in Mozart’s La Finta Giardiniera conducted by Robin Ticciati.
We hope you will join with us in making Luise feel very welcome as part of the OAE family.
