Eva ZĂ¶llner, born in Germany in 1978, was educated as classical accordionist at the Academy of Music Cologne and at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. She is one of the most active accordionists of her generation and devotes herself to contemporary music.
As soloist and versatile chamber musician she tours the world between Iceland, Tierra del Fuego, Australia and Japan and appears in productions ranging from experimental solo performances to concerts with renowned contemporary music ensembles.
