In 2009, the mezzo-soprano Eva Vogel made her successful debut in Berliner Philharmoniker concerts. Six years later, she accompanied the orchestra on the highly acclaimed Beethoven tour, during which the Berliner Philharmoniker, under the direction of Sir Simon Rattle, presented all of Beethoven’s symphonies at the Paris Philharmonie, the Vienna Musikverein and Carnegie Hall in New York, and then released them as a CD box set on the orchestra’s in-house label, Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings.
Eva Vogel studied at Mannes College of Music in New York, Yale University and under Christa Ludwig and Brigitte Fassbaender. The mezzo-soprano was then a member of the opera studio at Oper Köln before permanent engagements in Dusseldorf and Innsbruck followed. During these years Eva Vogel expanded her broad repertoire with roles such as Orfeo (Gluck), Lola ([Cavalleria Rusticana]), Cherubino ([Le Nozze di Figaro]), Hänsel ([Hansel and Gretel]), Octavian ([Der Rosenkavalier]), Flora ([La Traviata]) and Carmen. Guest engagements have also taken her to the Royal Opera House in London, the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin, the Grand Theatre Genève, the Teatro Massimo Palermo and the Teatro Regio Torino. Eva Vogel has appeared in various Wagner roles at the Aix-en-Provence Festival, the Salzburg Easter Festival and the Lucerne Festival. Concert engagements and recitals have taken her to the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, the Philharmonie Berlin, the Tonhalle Düsseldorf, the Auditorium in Milan as well as to New York, Alabama, Winnipeg and Seoul.
