Australian flautist Ana de la Vega has been named by one of Germany’s leading newspapers “The New Wonder-Flautist” (Welt am Sonntag), and the Berlin Morning Post has written “Critics are unanimous that she is one of the most outstanding artists of our time”. Recently leaping onto the international classical music scene Ana's playing has attracted unbridled attention world wide for her 'crystal-clear' and 'velvety tone' (NDR Kultur), 'superior, masterful technique' (Fono Forum), 'feathery-light playing' (Der Spiegel), and 'unobtrusive virtuosity' (Pizzicato).
Ana has appeared as soloist in the world’s most prestigious concert halls including, Philharmonie Berlin, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Wigmore Hall London, and Munich Philharmonie Gasteig to name a few, as well as performed as soloist with leading orchestras such as the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin, English Chamber Orchestra, Prague Royal Philharmonic, Szczechin Philharmonic, Bremen Philharmonic, Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie, Bochum Symphoniker, WKO Heilbronn, and the Trondheim Soloists.
Her debut recording of Mozart and Myslivecek flute concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra rocket started her career, winning Classic FM’s ‘Best Album’s of 2018’, reaching No.1 on Amazon’s Best Seller charts, and winning CD of the week in 11 countries. Her second album of Haydn and Stamitz concertos with star oboist Ramón Ortega Quero, made a similar splash with international press unanimously marvelling at their ‘Almost dizzying Perfect Harmony’ (NDR). Her third album ‘Bach Unbuttoned’ has just been released worldwide with a 3 hour show on ABC Classic Radio and a documentary aired throughout Europe’s TV stations. ‘My Paris’ her anticipated fourth album, will be released worldwide on May 20th this year.

It has been aired in Germany, France and Austria 6 times and in coming weeks will be aired 8 times on Sweden’s main TV Channel. ARTE made a second film on Ana and Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, which aired in Germany, France, Austria and Slovenia recently to equal acclaim.
