Petra Asztalos

flute,Baroque flute (traverso), music theory

Petra Asztalos was born in Budapest, Hungary, where she received most of her early musical studies. She learned the flute with Eszter Alföldy-Boruss and played with famous conductors at this time, like Tamás Vásáry, Mátyás Antal, Gergely Ménesi, Heinz Arlt and Yurij Simonov. Besides her main subject, the flute, she chose another one: music theory. Petra moved to Austria to study the flute with Prof. Norbert Girlinger and prof. Helmut Trawöger at the Anton Bruckner University in Linz. During her bachelor studies she got to know the transverse flute (traverso), which she studied with Prof. Dr. Claire Genewein. After she studied in Salzburg, at the Mozarteum University, where she completed both of her Master's degrees for modern and baroque flute with distinction. Petra Asztalos's interest for early music led her to Basel, Switzerland to study the traverso with Marc Hantaï and renaissance flute with Johanna Bartz at the Musik-Akademie Basel/Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. She finished her studies in 2020. Petra Asztalos has been performing as a chamber musician and orchestra member in numerous concert halls and festivals. She worked with conductors like Karen Kamensek, Ton Koopman, Sigiswald Kuijken, Alfredo Bernardini, Michi Gaigg, Martin Braun, etc. in ensembles and orchestras like the Filharmonia Sudecka, Salzburger Barockorchester, Kontra.punkt - Das Barockorchester, Salzburger Hofmusik, Concerto Luterano, etc. As a soloist she played the Andante in C from W. A. Mozart with orchestra led by Sigiswald Kuijken in Collevecchio, Italy in 2012, the Concerto in A for flute, oboe and viola from G. Ph. Telemann with the chamber orchestra of the Regensburg Theater in 2017, the F major Concerto for solo flute from A. Vivaldi with the chamber orchestra of the early music department of the Mozarteum University in 2018. Teaching experiences could be collected since 2009 in the Yamaha Music School, Linz, where Petra learned the Yamaha teaching method. In a public music school in Szigetszentmiklós, where she was teaching for one year, she learned the Hungarian teaching method and the Kodály method. In Austrian state music schools she could experience the proper way to share her enthusiasm and knowledge of music with pupils of all ages during her practical studies and working there later. Petra now teaches in the Reiman Akademie in Linz and gives private lessons beside being a freelance musician.
