Final Concert - Masterclass Flute - Elisabeth Möst

Elisabeth Moest is the sister of the star orchestra conductor

Her concerts are an experience.With her beautiful sound, her ability to affect and her deeply impressing musicality she creates an atmosphere in the concert hall, which never fails to fascinate. Austrian-born flautist Elisabeth Moest studied at the Private Universities of Music in Linz and Vienna and attended master classes with William Bennett, Maxence Larrieux and Aurele Nicolet. After receiving her diploma, her musical path led her to Vienna for further private studies with Manuela Wiesler, as well as with William Bennett at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
