„Xenia Löffler… shows once again, that she is the queen of the baroque oboe.“
„This was borne out by the Akamus performance,… which might have been billed as the Xenia Löffler Show. Löffler is the group’s principal oboist,… her consummate musicianship and excellent command of a sometimes unruly instrument were featured in a concerto, this time by C.P.E. Bach.“
„The oboist Xenia Löffler, the impressive soloist, played with elegance and flair.“
(New York Times)
Acclaimed for her „effortless virtuosity“ and her „elegant tone, rich in colour and nuances,“ Xenia Löffler studied at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.
