About Elisabeth Plank


Elisabeth Plank is a young, internationally renowned harpist. She is dedicated to also presenting her instrument outside the romantic repertoire it is most commonly associated with.

Born in Vienna in 1991, she had her first lesson at age seven and, only two years later, she was accepted as a preparatory course student at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Starting from 2009, she has been under the tuition of Adelheid Blovsky-Miller and has concluded her studies in June 2015 with the highest distinction. She is currently pursuing further studies with Mirjam Schröder in Vienna and Fabrice Pierre in Brescia.

Elisabeth Plank debuted as a soloist with orchestra in 2006 with the concerto for harp by Georg F. Händel at the Hofburgkapelle Vienna, performances with the concerto for flute and harp by Wolfgang A. Mozart, the "Danses" by Claude Debussy and Caplet's "Conte fantastique" followed.

A prizewinner in a number of national and international competitions, in 2014 Elisabeth Plank was honoured with the vYoung Celebrity Master"-award of "HarpMasters" in Switzerland.

She gave her first solo recital at age 17, at the Konzerthaus in Vienna, and has gone on to make a name for herself with performances around the world as a soloist and chamber musician ("Musica Juventutis", "Young Classic Europe", "Rio Harp Festival", "World Harp Congress", "Schönberg Center", "Festival Next Generation" among others). Her solo appearances have also been broadcasted by radio stations.

Elisabeth Plank is a very eager performer and promoter of contemporary music and so far, two works have been composed for her: "Sonatine für Harfe" by Andreas Wykydal (Premiere in London 2014) and a harp concerto by Onur Dülger: "Bai-Ulgan" (Premiere in Vienna 2015, Radiokulturhaus Wien, Webern Ensemble, Jean-Bernard Matter).
