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 (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.

Biography

Evelyn Huber studied harp with 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, the group she joined in 2008. 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.

Numerous CD recordings with a wide variety of musical combos are evidence of the vast scope of Evelyn Huber’s unique artistry on the harp.

From the moment ...

Evelyn Huber:
Harp
Matthias Frey: Grand Piano
Christopher Herrmann: Cello

Music for the inner cinema - an exciting musical journey!
Four acoustic instruments - four very different musical personalities, inspiring each other with their unconventional ways of playing. A special chamber music, evoking powerfully subtle dreamlike images. In creative dialogue, listening, together. Silence & fire. An evening of musical sensuality.

Evelyn Huber - Harp

The renowned world musician, recipient of the Bavarian Culture Prize and two-time Echo winner, including the "Best Live Act of the Year" along with her band Quadro Nuevo, jams, buzzes, hums, whistles and swings on the harp, evoking fast-paced and intricately woven melodies from her instrument, every now and then enchanting and flirting on delicate angelic strings. With charm, enthusiasm and technical perfection Evelyn Huber evokes from the harp soundscapes unheard of until now.

Matthias Frey - Grand Piano

A musician in constant motion. As well as producing CDs of his own music and that of other artists, he performs at concerts and festivals, composes music for feature films and documentaries, serves on the jury of the German World Music Award CREOLE and organizes a concert series for Peace and International Understanding as well as the international Weltklang Festival and the Film Music Festival in Bad Ems.
He plays the grand piano like a stringed instrument, eliciting unusual and unique sounds through the use of a variety of playing techniques and thereby opening wide the door for musical communication with the music of other cultures.

Christopher Herrmann - Cello

This exceptional cellist creates a profusion of diverse musical landscapes on baroque, modern and electric cellos. In addition to his love of classical music and his interest in their contemporaries, his curiosity about the music of other cultures has inspired him to develop a musical language all his own.
He continues to bring the cello into new and unfamiliar contexts and has developed special playing techniques specifically for this. In addition to compositions for solo cello, he also writes works for large ensembles and performs in concert as a multi-instrumentalist on guitar, piano, erhu, Sarod etc.
