Stephanie Lepp


(*1980, Spielberg/Germany), versatile flute player and sound artist, award winner of the german national competition “Jugend Musiziert 1998”. She graduated at Hochschule für Musik Köln, being a student of Robert Winn and Thaddeus Watson. Her teachers Berthild auf dem Kampe, Berten d’Hollander as well as Mario Caroli influenced her decisifely. She participated in numerous masterclasses with Aurèle Nicolet, Mike Mower and Jörg Widmann, among others. She was a scholarship-holder of IEMA 2009 (International Ensemble Modern Academy), “Centre Acanthes 2006” and “Yehudi Menuhin-Foundation LiveMusicNow Cologne” and was nominated with an own solo-performance for the Gaudeamus Prize 2008, Amsterdam.

Her musical activities guide her all around Europe. Among others, she gave concerts in the “Kammermusiksaal of Beethovenhaus, Bonn” and went on concert-tour to Turkey, following the invitation by Deutscher Musikrat and Goethe-Institut. As a soloist she participated and participates in different festivals like “Art Cologne 2006”, “International Gaudeamus Music Week Amsterdam 2008”, “Klangspuren Schwaz 2009”, “Musik in den Häusern der Stadt 2010”, or “Klangvisionen- Festival Köln 2010” there together with Markus Stockhausen and Kudsi Erguner, among others.

Stephanie Lepp is intensely following through improvisation, contemporary music and live-performance. Therefore she received important impulses from Markus Stockhausen. The composers Michael Daugherty and Eduardo Lorenzo gave her artistically advises. Her interest in non-European music led to an intense musical exchange with the Turkish singer and saz-player Arzu Gök, the Indian bansuri-player Dinesh Mishra and other musicians.
