Australian flautist 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 the week.

Ana says about her serendipitous discovery of the flute: 'When I decided to be a flautist I had never seen a flute. I was seven years old playing in the garden on our farm when Jean-Pierre Rampal’s recording of the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto came through my parents’ speakers. The second movement of that concerto rendered me speechless. Every decision from that moment on led me to the flute, to Paris… to Mozart... A long way from the flies and the dust!’
