ANA DE LA VEGA

flute
biography

Few flautists of her generation have performed so extensively worldwide as soloist and chamber musician. Ana de la Vega’s Wigmore Hall debut was reviewed as ‘Outstanding’ (Classical Source), her Cadogan Hall London performance as ‘true artistry’ (Musical Opinion), and her Berlin Philharmonie debut as ‘first-class’. Highly acclaimed for her recent Mozart Flute Concerto in D with the English Chamber Orchestra in London, Ana will record her debut concerto disk with the same orchestra in coming months.

Her premiere of Mysliveček’s lost flute concerto with the English Chamber Orchestra was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, made Critics’ Choice in London TimeOut and received rave reviews in BBC Magazine, Gig Magazine and the Daily Telegraph. Having discovered numerous lost works for flute which she pioneeres in expanding the flute repertoire, Ana de la Vega is rapidly becoming one of the most exiting ambassadors of her instrument today.

Ana was a student of the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris where she studied for her Premier Prix under Catherine Cantin, as well as with Philippe Pierlot and Raymond Guiot. Born in Australia to British and Argentinian parents, Ana is a successor of the great French school of Flute playing. At the age of 23 she won the position of Principal Flute with the Orquestra Sinfonica do Norte in Portugal. Since then she has held Principal Flute positions with the EPK Europa Philharmonie in Baden-Württemberg in Germany, and the Philharmonie der Nationen in Hamburg.

Ana is founder and artistic director of the London International Players, a dynamic London ensemble which brings together the finest musicians of her generation. On the wings of her dynamism they have already in their first season performed in Europes greatest halls to high regard, making headlines in the UK and abroad with their ‘explosive and ‘dazzling’ performances (World Of Classical Music, Wigmore Hall review).

The English Chamber Orchestra’s Stylish Sunday Concert
2015-06-02 Seen and Heard International, London
"De la Vega's lovely clean sound, even phrasing and the airy lightness with which she ran through the registers made the melodies seem tailor-made for the flute.

... her playing demonstrated an innate stylishness and grace, and a beautifully pure tone ...
