Elisabeth Weber is one of the most versatile violinists of her generation:
passionate chamber musician and soloist,
experienced concertmaster, distinguished pedagogue and, last but not least,
enthusiastic specialist for historical performance practice.
She has been inspired by chamber music collaboration with musicians
such as Boris Pergamenschikow, Martin Helmchen,
Tabea Zimmermann, Martin Spangenberg or in a duo constellation with cymbalist Luigi Gaggero.
She is a member of the Orphelian Quartet, which is dedicated to string quartet literature on historical instruments.
Chamber music concerts have taken Elisabeth Weber to the
Wigmore Hall London, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Brigdewater Hall Manchester and Concertgebouw Amsterdam.
As a concertmaster of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne,
Zurich Chamber Orchestra and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra,
Elisabeth Weber has worked with conductors such as Christian Zacharias, Claudio Abbado, András Schiff and Daniel Harding.
She also enthusiastically conducts chamber orchestra projects from the concertmaster's position.
The constant expansion of her repertoire,
her interest in contemporary music,
but also her passion for historical performance practice – inspired by specialists such as Frans Brüggen, Rachel Pdger and Jesper Christensen – enriches her musical perspectives.
