CV & Contact


Anna Breger is a multi-instrumentalistic artist, creating music with nyckelharpa and (baroque) violin based on her expertise in Folk, early music and improvisational music. She conducts projects that are specializing in traditional or early music, or going a step further and arranging it with modern elements, as well as creating and writing completely new music and tonal experiments. She has been conducting many interdisciplinary art projects, with dance  of various kinds as well as music and literature.

Since more than a decade she has been regularly performing with Baroque and Folk ensembles around Europe (Austria, Germany, Italy, UK, Latvia, Sweden, Lithuania, Estonia, Hungary, Russia) and in the US. 


Besides her studies at the conservatory in violin pedagogy as well as baroque violin, her musical development was influenced most by extensive visits and stays in US, UK and Scandinavia. There, she played with and got inspired from various brilliant musicians and styles, resulting in her unique way of playing and performing.  


Her projects have lead her to play and teach amongst others at the international prestigious festivals 

Boston Celtic Music Festival (US), Vivat Curlandia - Early music festival (LV), Sabatants Traditional Dance Festival (EE), New England Folk Festival (US), Schrammelklang-Festival (AT), Mittelalterfest Eggenburg (AT), Erdball (AT), …, to play with the Leeds Baroque Orchestra (Peter Holman) and the Collegium Musicum Riga (Maris Kupcs), and as concertmaster of different baroque orchestra projects, including Leeds Opera Orchestra and the MUK Baroque orchestra. In March 2020 she organised the international "Nyckelharpa Tanzt" festival in Vienna, which was sadly hindered by the pandemic lockdown. 

More information about her current projects may be found in the other sections.
