Windspiel was founded in 2000 by Verena Wüsthoff and Eva Zöllner. Both musicians have made a name for themselves as specialists for contemporary music in the international concert business and are working diligently to expand the repertoire for their instruments and to present them in new contexts. As the only professional recorder-accordion duo in the world with over 15 years of stage experience, the two musicians inspire their audience with lively and authentic interpretations.
Eva Zöllner studied classical accordion at the University of Music Cologne, department Wuppertal, and at the Royal Danish Conservatory in Copenhagen. She is one of the most active accordionists of her generation and dedicated to contemporary music with great commitment. As an internationally sought-after artist, she presents projects worldwide, ranging from experimental solo performance to collaboration with well-known orchestras. The close collaboration with composers of her generation is an important aspect of her work. As a result, she has premiered more than 150 works in recent years. She is particularly interested in the combination of her instrument with new media. Eva Zöllner lives in Hamburg and nomadically on the journey to explore her instrument in different contexts and cultures.
