A versatile pianist, Eva Barta not only performs lieder recitals and works at various theaters as a stage musician but is also passionate about solo piano literature and regularly gives piano recitals.
The Hungarian-born pianist from Transylvania came to Germany at three. When she was eleven, she received lessons from Konrad Meister of the Hanover University of Music, Drama, and Media before studying at the Hamburg University of Music and Theatre with Evgeni Koroliov. While studying at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Eva Barta discovered her love for lieder – for the synthesis of sound and words that creates a new scenic level in music.
She went on to study lied interpretation, first at the University for Music Karlsruhe with Anne Le Bozec and Hartmut Höll before studying again at the Hamburg University of Music and Theatre with Burkhard Kehring, where she completed her Master’s degree in lied composition with honors. She attended master classes given by Helmut Deutsch, Julius Drake, and Elly Ameling, among others, won the Lions Music Competition, an accompanist prize at the Maritim Singing Competition and the Joseph Suder Lied Competition, and was a scholarship holder of the Yehudi Menuhin “Live-Music-Now” Foundation and the Richard Wagner Association.
Concerts have taken Eva Barta to festivals in Poland and Romania, such as the Filarmonica de Stat Târgu Mureș. When she was 18, she performed Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major on tour with the International Youth Orchestra Elbe-Weser.
Since her studies, she has worked with singers, performing the Schöne Müllerin with tenor Daniel Behle. She has also given recitals at the Laeiszhalle and the Kunsthalle Hamburg. She works at the Hamburg Chamber Opera and the Thalia Theater Hamburg. Guest appearances have taken her to the Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg, the Mannheim Mozartsommer, and the Pantheon Theater Bonn.
