“no-one could argue with the quality of the playing, which was magnificent: delicate and sparkling, almost forensic in its precision.”
Seen and Heard International, October 2012
Having made her debut performance with the London Symphony Orchestra in 2014, violinist Veronika Eberle returns to the London Symphony Orchestra on Sunday 15 October for her first ever appearance with Bernard Haitink where she will perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. More information here. The same programme will be repeated on Thursday 19 October in the Barbican Centre and Sunday 22 October in Auditorio Nacional de Música, Madrid.
Veronika rose to international attention after her introduction by Sir Simon Rattle to a packed Salzburg Festpielhaus at the 2006 Salzburg Easter Festival in a performance of the Beethoven concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker when aged just 16. Key orchestra collaborations since then include the London Symphony Orchestra, Concertgebouw, New York Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Munich Philharmonic and Gewandhaus Orchestras, Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Hessischer Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester, Bamberger Symphoniker, Tonhalle Orchester Zurich, NHK Symphony Orchestra and Rotterdam Philharmonic.
Veronika in an interview with the LSO:
“It is a long-held dream of mine to play with Legendary Maestro Bernard Haitink. I heard him a couple of years ago in Berlin with Bruckner’s Symphony No. 7 and this was one of the concerts I will never forget. It is burned into myself. With these few little gestures he creates universes and shakes you deeply. I imagine that there will be moments I will never forget when I have the immense joy of working with him and the LSO.”

Highlights will include debut concerts with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, tours of Australia and Japan as well as concerts with the Staatsoper Hamburg for the revival of Alban Berg’s Lulu.
