Boller Bettina - Violin

Biography of Boller Bettina:

The violinist Bettina Boller has distinguished herself as an individual and expressive music personality since her childhood. She studied under Ottavio Corti in Zurich and Ulrich Lehmann in Bern (soloist diploma with honours). Further studies under Itzhak Perlmann and Masao Kawasaki in New York. Bettina Boller has made her mark with her dedication to the music of the 20th century and has brought Swiss works to international notice (among others recording of the violin concertos by O. Schoeck for claves, H. Suter and W. Vogel for Musikszene Schweiz). She appeals to a large audience with her very personal and engaged art of playing, and has already motivated many composers to write (among others recording of the concerto for ensemble and violin by Klaus Ospald for NEOS, which is dedicated to her). Together with the director Adrian Marthaler she has realised five, partly internationally award-winning, music visualisations. Together with her duo partner Walter Prossnitz she attends to many other works beyond the established repertoire. She also has a special interest in temporary creative musical work. She is a member of the soloist ensemble Collegium Novum Zurich, and together with pianist Stefka Perifanova and cellist Imke Frank founded the Absolut Trio, which has made a name for itself with its special programmes and awards contracts for theme-related compositions on a yearly basis. In 2006, e.g., three works were created, which referred to Schumann’s vocal duets (Junghae Lee, Gary Berger, Daniel Glaus). In the summer of 2008 her debut CD was published with works by A. Schoenberg (“Verklärte Nacht” arranged by E. Steuermann for piano trio), “15 Moments Musicaux” by Rudolf Kelterborn, dedicated to the Absolut Trio, and B.A. Zimmermann’s “Présence”. An additional important personal interest for Bettina Boller is musical education for children. She has conceived and executed several projects with orchestra, e.g. most recently “Peer Gynt” for children from the age of 6. For Bettina Boller music is a language, to which she wants to dedicate herself uncompromisingly taking all aspects into account, as a compelling experience for both the audience as well as herself.
