Eva-Maria, a Swiss pianist, maintains a career on two continents through performances that are "breathtakingly intense" (Der Bund) and "brilliant and sensitive" (Berner Oberländer). Her solo appearances include recitals as well as concerto performances with major symphony orchestras, such as the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. Winner of the prestigious Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship, Eva-Maria has appeared at international festivals in Israel, the United States, and Europe including the Festival Piano en Saintonge in France, the Sommerfestspiele Murten in Switzerland, in San Francisco's Yerba Buena International Music Festival and the OtherMinds' Festival for New Music, as well as the Séance for New Music presented by OtherMinds. Eva-Maria has studied with many distinguished musicians, such as Leon Fleisher, György Sebök, Leonard Hokanson, and Dominique Merlet. She graduated with highest honors from the Conservatory of Geneva.
Eva-Maria's partnership in ChamberBridge with soprano Lara Bruckmann includes both concertizing and the producing of an annual festival, which celebrates the work and compositional lineage of a particular twentieth or twenty-first century composer. Other collaborations include projects with the Del Sol String Quartet and bass-baritone René Perler. Eva-Maria was a founding member of the award-winning Charmillon Piano Quartet. Many of her chamber music and lieder recitals have been broadcasted in Swiss Radio DRS2 and Radio de la Suisse Romande in such prestigious series as World Class on DRS2. Eva-Maria has also worked as a faculty member of the University of San Francisco.
