‘Australian ﬂutist Ana de la Vega has recently leapt onto the international classical music scene, attracting critical acclaim for her ‘crystal-clear’ and ‘velvety tone’ (NDR Kultur), ‘superior, masterful technique’ (Fono Forum), ‘feathery-light playing’ (Der Spiegel), and ‘unobtrusive virtuosity’ (Pizzicato).
Her debut recording, released in June 2018 on the Pentatone label and featuring Mozart and Myslivecek ﬂute concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra, was selected as No.3 of Classic FM’s ‘Best Albums of 2018’, reaching No. 1 on Amazon’s Classical Best Sellers list (Germany), NDR Kultur CD of the week, BBC Scotland CD of the week, and Classic FM Netherlands CD of week.
