For many years, the cellist Eva Freitag has been part of the international music scene. As solo cellist of the European Union Chamber Orchestra she has performed in Europe, the US, South America, Asia and Africa. She also gave solo performances with the ensemble in England, South America and at the Martinu Festival in Brno, the Czech Republic (recorded in a live TV broadcast).
As a committed chamber musician, Eva Freitag has performed at the concert series of the DSO Berlin, NDR Hamburg and at numerous festivals such as the Bregenzer Festspiele, Aldeburgh Festival, Orlando Festival at Kerkrade and the Berlin International Music Festival.
Eva has played as a guest with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonia, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, Mahler Chamber Orchestra and as a solo cellist with Ensemble Resonanz, Camerata Berlin and Berliner Kammersymphonie. Since 2012 she plays regularly with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin.
One of Eva’s great passions as a cellist is to collaborate with other art forms: during her studies at University of the Arts Berlin, her artistic experience was shaped by projects at the Berliner Schaubühne (directed by Falk Richter or Katie Mitchell), “Don Giovanni“ (directed by Katharina Thalbach) and productions by Sasha Waltz at the Berlin Radialsystem.
From 2006 to 2008 Eva Freitag was artist-in-residence of the Barenboim-Said Foundation in Ramallah. She worked as a teacher in the Westbank and in Palestinian refugee camps. She also performed at the foundation’s chamber music series in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Nablus and Jenin, with a number of musicians including Daniel Barenboim.
Since 2006 Eva Freitag is an Adjunct Faculty member of the
Berlin University of the Arts.
