The German flautist Anja Weinberger studied music, musicology, art history and theater studies at the universities and colleges of music in Munich, Mannheim and Erlangen. She took master classes with Paul Meisen, Jean-Claude Gérard, Peter Thalheimer, Renate Greiss-Armin, Helmut Rilling and Leonard Bernstein. She works as a freelance musician, mainly making chamber music. Together with three other flautists, she founded the Japanese - German quartet JaDe. Since 2011 she has been the artistic director of the “Candlelight Concerts” (Konzerte bei Kerzenschein) in Erlangen (Germany) and since 2014 of the “Annual Concerts” (Konzerte im Jahreskreis) in Hof (Germany). More than 50 works have been composed for her or her chamber music ensemble in recent years. "Vom Himmel hoch ..." deserves special mention - a project in which composers around the world re-examine, vary or develop Advent and Christmas carols. Two volumes of this collection have already been published by the “Canticus” publishing house in Hamburg, and the third will soon follow. A CD of the same name is also available from “Canticus”. Anja Weinberger lives with her family in Erlangen, Franconia.
