“Unterwegssein – die Akkordeonistin Eva Zöllner”
31st June 0.05 am on Deutschlandradio Kultur
I am very grateful for all the people who came to join us for our charity concert last Friday in Hamburg!
I performed with composer Carlos Andres Rico from Colombia and with Syrian composer and violinist Jehad Jazbeh and it was an intense evening with colourful music. We collected donations for the Syrian Expat Philharmonic Orchestra and for an initiative from Hamburg that donates bikes to refugees. Thank you everybody!
My project “caja de viento” got selected as one of the official projects of the Mexico – Germany year 2016. There will be workshops and concerts in different parts of the country followed by a call for scores for composers. The first trip will already happen in June 2016 and will take me to Mexico City, Puebla and Guadalajara.
More places to follow in November. Thank you to the matching funds of the Dual Year for support!
This project will also mark the 10th anniversary of my regular work in Mexico which has been very inspiring and prosperous and also a great personal experience over the years.
You can find up to date information about the concerts, workshops and other activities on the facebook page of the project caja de viento. Please visit and follow.

2015 was a year full of great experiences, exciting projects and inspiring encounters. MANY THANKS to all friends, partners, colleagues, composers, audiences, organizers and all the other amazing people who are constantly following and supporting my work. HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!
There s some great new music coming along soon in 2016. Stay tuned!
Here are some memories from 2015:
I very excited about the premier of Georgina Derbez´ new chamber opera “La Creciente” which will be premiered at the Festival Internacional Cervantino on October 9. The opera is based on the movie “El premio” by Argentinian movie director Paula Markovitch who also wrote the libretto. It is a very touching story that is set at the time of the Argentinian military junta. The instrumentation will be colourful and transparent: clarinet, vibraphone/percussion, accordion and piano.
My bags are packed for my second tour to the US this year and I am very excited to be a part of Baltimore´s legendary HIGH ZERO Festival of Experimental Improvised Music with a great line-up of amazing musicians. Before I get there I will quickly dash through Washington D.C. for Sonic Circuits Festival. I m really excited to get back to this part of the world where so much crazy music making is happening!
My new website is online! It provides brand new information about me, current projects, music and upcoming concerts and collaborations. I hope you ll enjoy browsing the pages and explore infos, sounds and ideas.
It is great to have this virtual platform to present my work. However, luckily it does not replace live concert experiences and I do hope to share my music with you in person, some time some place…
Many thanks to David Zöllner, my super-creative brother, for solving all my computer-related problems during the programming of these pages!
I finally joined the soundcloud community. You can now find selected live recordings from recent concerts as well as some releases from my archive.
Some more to come in the fall, stay tuned!
