Zofia Neugebauer, flute
Zofia Neugebauer was born in 1994 in Poland and began to play the piano at the age of five before she changed to the flute at the age of ten. Already when she was thirteen she had her first performance with the Sinfonieorchester in Katowice.
Zofia Neugebauer attended the Musikschule Breslau with an emphasis on music where she gained top marks in her final exam. After school she moved to Basle in order to study with the renowned flautist Felix Renggli at the Hochschule fuer Musik. Mr. Renggli had already met Zofia at a master class in Poland while she was still at school and had begun to work on her musical development. In 2016 Zofia gained her bachelor degree with top marks at the Hochschule in Basle. She then continued her studies in Basle, but these were interrupted when from 2017-2019 she became a member of the Karajan-Akademie of the Berlin Philharmonic. Since January 2019 she is principal flute in the Sinfonieorchester Lucerne.
She gained important artistic inspiration from attending master classes given by Cezary Traczewski.
She has been chosen as a scholarship holder of the Polish Ministry for the Arts. The young flautist has been a successful participant in numerous international competitions.
Zofia Neugebauer has performed regularly as a principal flute with such orchestras as the Guerzenich Orchester Cologne, the Camerata Zurich and the Verbier Festival Orchestra. She has worked with great conductors like Simon Rattle, Ivan Fischer, Antonio Pappano and Paavo Jaervi. In addition she has been a guest at famous music festivals like the Bad Kissinger Sommer and the Dresdner Festspiele. Her solo performance with the Camerata Zurich in September 2018 where she played “Introduktion und Variationen ueber Trockene Blumen” by Franz Schubert attracted much attention and a positive echo in the press.
