Evelyn Huber Portrait mit Harfe

To hear Evelyn Huber on solo harp is an unforgettable experience in sound, passionate and fiery, meditative and ethereal at the same time. 

Inspired by tango, jazz, expressionism and the Latin American joie de vivre, she has developed a unique music style all her own, carried by her sunny temperament and dedication to her music.

The recipient of the Bavarian Culture Prize and two-time winner of the Echo (“Best Live Act of the year“ with Quadro Nuevo) jams, hums, buzzes, whistles and swings on the harp, effortlessly allowing it to resonate with exquisitely woven melodies at a stunning pace. Flirtatious at times, it then seduces us with the most tender and angelic of strings. With charm, technical perfection and boundless enthusiasm, Evelyn Huber draws an unprecedented range of soundscapes from this wonderful instrument.

Evelyn Huber studied harp as a student of Helga Storck, graduating with a Master’s degree from the “Hochschule für Musik und Theater” in Munich where she subsequently taught harp from 1998 to 2009. In 2007 she was appointed visiting professor at the Guildhall School of Music in London.

Evelyn began early on to cross conventional musical boundaries, continuing to sound out the possibilities presented by the grand concert harp. Jazz workshops in the United States, concert activities with various ensembles around the world as well as her solo performances have made her a virtuoso in the genres of jazz and world music.

The extraordinary mastery of the harp with which she became known around the world has now been brought to the music of Quadro Nuevo, of which she was a member from 2008 to 2020. In 2010 and 2011, the ensemble was presented with the German Music Award in the category “Live Act of the Year”.

Evelyn Huber has also been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards including the Bavarian Cultural Award and has been presented with the Jazz Award of the German Phonographic Industry a number of times.
