Due to her empathetic style and her extensive repertoire Eva Sperl has developed into a sought-after accompanist and chamber music partner and is invited beyond the boundaries of music colleges to play at masterclasses, competitions and concerts. 

 

Alongside the heavy workload at the two colleges, she has an active concert schedule as chamber musician to many instrumentalist and singers as well as working as a soloist.  She is asked to be an accompanist at international competitions and festivals.  These have in the past included the “International Summer Academy“ of the Julliard School, New York, the “Euro Music Festival”, the Competition “Young Concert Artists”, the “rotarischen Meisterkursen” in Sondershausen und the “Hans von Bülow-Klavierwettbewerb” in Meiningen.

 

Eva Sperl has a special affinity to the music of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.  His chamber music and piano music often form a central part of her programming.  She played the complete „Lieder ohne Worte“ at the Mendelssohn-Festtagen in Leipzig and was awarded a Stipendium from the Mendelssohnstiftung Leipzig for her cycle of concerts, where she performed the complete piano works of Mendelssohn with Opusnumbers.  Even more performances of Mendelssohn’s works followed because of this honour.

 

Eva Sperl has given concert tours in France, Belgium, Poland, Austria, England, Spain, Switzerland and Japan.
