Éva Csermák is a violinist living in Berlin and Hegymagas, and a prominent organizer and personality in the classical music scene of the Balaton Highlands. Her unique and exciting performance style has been praised on both domestic and international stages.

She was born in 1973 in Dunaújváros. She completed her musical studies at the Zoltán Kodály Secondary School of Music in Kecskemét, and then earned her violinist diploma at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. She perfected her skills in masterclasses with renowned teachers. She has played in numerous orchestras, including the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, Camerata Salzburg, and the Budapest Festival Orchestra. From 2002 to 2007, she was the section leader of the Deutsche Kammerakademie, and since 2010, she has been a regular participant in major Berlin orchestras such as the Staatsoper and Konzerthausorchester.

In 2001, she co-founded the Hegymagas Music Days chamber music festival with Gábor Csalog, which was a prominent classical music event in the region for many years.

Since 2017, she has been a regular guest artist at the Csigó Art Fest.

She was a member of the Berlin-Budapest String Quartet, and she increasingly performs in the alternative jazz genre.

Currently, she is a lecturer at the Leo Kestenberg Music School in Berlin.

Ditta Rohmann is a highly versatile musician known for her extraordinary abilities across various fields of music.

She completed her studies at the New England Conservatory in Boston with Suren Bagratuni, at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest with Miklós Perényi, and at the Basel Academy of Music with Ivan Monighetti. She drew significant inspiration from masterclasses with renowned musicians such as Boris Pergamenschikow, Jean-Guihen Queyras, András Schiff, György Kurtág, Steven Isserlis, Tita Wagner, and above all, Ferenc Rados. Her awards notably include those from the Leipzig Bach Competition in 2012.

She has collaborated with several Hungarian dance ensembles and performed as a soloist 13 times with the Vienna State Ballet.

Ditta Rohmann's repertoire ranges from Baroque to contemporary compositions and improvisation. Her close collaborations with renowned composers like Péter Eötvös and Sofia Gubaidulina reflect her commitment to promoting and performing diverse musical works.

Among her most outstanding recordings are five solo albums featuring all of J.S. Bach’s works for cello, as well as her repertoire for the five-string cello-violin. Her interpretation of J.S. Bach’s cello suites, which reflects her interest in historical performance practice, has been critically acclaimed and ranked among the best by the English magazine Gramophone.

Teaching plays an important role in Ditta's life, and she was recently appointed as a professor at the University of Lucerne. Since 2020, she has been the head of the cello department at the Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. In her masterclasses, she uses tone painting as a tool for improvisation and live composition. Her pedagogical approach is considered holistic, as she believes in nurturing a healthy and creative new generation of artists.
