Veronika Eberle (born 26 December 1988) is a German violinist. She is one of Germany’s greatest violin talents and plays with many world-famous orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic and the London Philharmonic. She was born in Donauwörth, Southern Germany, where she started violin lessons at the age of six. Four years later she became a junior student at the Richard Strauss Konservatorium in Munich, with Olga Voitova. After studying privately with Christoph Poppen for a year, she joined the Hochschule in Munich, where she studied with Ana Chumachenco between 2001-2012.
Sir Simon Rattle’s introduction of Veronika Eberle, aged just 16, to a packed Salzburg Festpielhaus at the 2006 Salzburg Easter Festival, in a performance of the Beethoven concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker, brought her to international attention. Key orchestra and conductor collaborations since then include the London Symphony (Rattle), Concertgebouw Orchestra (Holliger), New York Philharmonic (Gilbert), Montreal Symphony (Nagano), Munich Philharmonic, Gewandhaus Orchestra (Langree), Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin (Janowski), Hessischer Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester (P. Järvi), Bamberger Symphoniker (Ticciati, Nott), Tonhalle Orchester Zurich (M.Sanderling), NHK Symphony (Kout, Stenz, Norrington) and the Rotterdam Philharmonic (Rattle, Gaffigan, Nézet-Seguin).
Over the years, Veronika Eberle has benefited from the support of a number of prestigious organisations, including the Nippon Foundation, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust (Fellowship in 2008), the Orpheum Stiftung zur Förderung Junger Solisten (Zurich), the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben (Hamburg) and the Jürgen-Ponto Stiftung (Frankfurt). She won the first prize at the 2003 Yfrah Neaman International Competition in Mainz, and was awarded Audience Awards by the patrons of the Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festivals. She was a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist 2011-2013 and was a Dortmund Konzerthaus “Junge Wilde” artist 2010-2012.
