About me

Hi, my name is Timea Acsai come from a family of musicians. 
Already during my studies, I played in several notable orchestras including, among others,

Mariss Jansons, Iván Fischer, Alan Gilbert, Gustavo Dudamel, Kirill Petrenko and Andris Nelsons. 

After receiving my bachelor’s degree with Prof. Lóránt Kovács at the Ferenc Liszt Music Academy in Budapest, 
I continued my studies in the class of Prof. Andrea Lieberknecht in Hannover and Munich, 
where I received the Meisterklassendiplom (Soloist Degree) in 2015.

including the Berliner Philharmonie, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, the Kultur und Kongresszentrum in Luzern (KKL Luzern), 
Salle Pleyel in Paris and the Festspielhaus in Salzburg. 
I have developed my flute playing at several masterclasses with well-known flutists, 
such as Emmanuel Pahud, András Adorján, Henrik Wiese, Gergely Ittzés and Dejan Gavric.
