Veronika Eberle

Veronika Eberle’s exceptional talent and the poise and maturity of her musicianship have been recognised by many of the world’s finest orchestras, venues and festivals, as well as some of the most eminent conductors. Simon Rattle’s introduction of her – then aged just 16 – to a packed Salzburg Festspielhaus at the 2006 Salzburg Easter Festival in a performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic, brought her to international attention.

Key collaborations since then include orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Munich Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, as well as conductors such as Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink, Daniel Harding, Christian Thielemann, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Kent Nagano, Lorenzo Viotti, Louis Langrée, Robin Ticciati, Paavo Järvi, Alan Gilbert, Iván Fischer, Heinz Holliger and Roger Norrington, to name a few.

Recent concerto highlights include Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de Lille, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and a tour with London Symphony Orchestra. Recent chamber music projects include performances at the Gstaad Menuhin Festival with Sol Gabetta and Antoine Tamestit, and Schubertiade with Steven Isserlis and Connie Shih, amongst others. Highlights in the 2023/2024 season include débuts with Budapest Festival Orchestra under Ivan Fischer, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse under Nathalie Stutzman, Karajan Academy under Oscar Jockel and Detroit Symphony Orchestra under David Afkham. This season also sees Eberle return to Wigmore Hall as Artist in Residence, and to Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (Rattle), Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (Fischer) and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (Stutzman).

Born in Donauwörth, Southern Germany, Eberle started violin lessons at the age of six, and four years later became a junior student at the Richard-Strauss-Konservatorium in Munich with Olga Voitova. After studying privately with Christoph Poppen for a year, she joined the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München where she studied with Ana Chumachenco from 2001-2012.

Eberle has benefitted from the support of a number of prestigious organisations, including the Reinhold Würth Musikstiftung gGmbH, Nippon Music Foundation, Borletti-Buitoni Trust (Fellowship in 2008), Orpheum Stiftung zur Förderung Junger Solisten (Zurich), Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben (Hamburg) and Jürgen Ponto-Stiftung (Frankfurt). She was a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist from 2011-2013 and a Dortmund Konzerthaus “Junge Wilde” artist from 2010-2012.

Eberle plays the 1700 “Dragonetti” Stradivarius violin, which was made available to her on generous loan by the Nippon Music Foundation, as well as the 1693 “Ries” Stradivarius, which is kindly on loan from the Reinhold Würth Musikstiftung gGmbH.
