Natascha Sprzagala

Member since 2004


Natascha Sprzagala grew up in Melbourne, Australia. She took violin lessons with Brian Blake and Nathan Gutman before changing to the viola. After her Matura, she first studied at the University of Melbourne and obtained a Bachelor of Planning & Design (Urban Planning).

During her Bachelor studies, she undertook subjects at the Faculty of Music, including viola and chamber music with Christopher Martin. Her love of music led her to continue on this path: At the Lucerne Conservatory she obtained the Teaching Diploma with Gunars Larsens and the Concert Diploma with distinction with Karen Forster. As a casual member of the Philharmonia Zurich (former orchestra of the Zurich Opera), Natascha received musical impulses from conductors such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Franz Welser-Möst, Nello Santi and Zubin Mehta. She has attended courses in historical performance practice with the baroque specialist Gerhard Darmstadt and has frequently played in the baroque orchestra La Scintilla under Sir Eliot Gardiner, William Christie and Marc Minkowski. Natascha has been a member of the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra since 2004.
