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 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 CDs 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 practise subsequently led her to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and to London, where she studied with Rachel Brown.
