The accordion concert soloist Mirjana Petercol was born on the Istrian peninsula on the Adriatic Sea. At an early age she received her first musical training at the local music school and conservatory. She subsequently received her diploma, master’s degree and concert soloist training at the universities of music in Hanover and Essen, followed by further qualifications as a church musician, choir director and elementary teacher as well as in the field of music medicine. She also holds a Master of Music in Medieval Music from the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen.
Mirjana Petercol is a fellowship holder of the Deutsche Richard-Wagner-Gesellschaft as well as a winner of the international “Concorso Citta di Castelfidardo”.
In addition to her busy international concert schedule as a soloist (Belle-art Seattle, Tage der Neuen Musik Hannover, Amstelkerk Amsterdam) and chamber musician (Mutare Ensemble, Stuttgarter Philharmoniker), she also enjoys teaching. She teaches accordion at the music academies in Kassel and Wiesbaden and at the University of Kassel. She also teaches at international accordion courses such as the International Summer Courses in Kristiansand, Norway, Musica Viva in Italy and Ljetna Skola Pula in Croatia and is a juror at competitions. Through her constant search for perfection in sound, her artistic fascination also extends to composers who have written various works for her, including Willem Schulz, Violeta Dinescu and Gerd Lisken. She has also participated in numerous documentary projects, including the opera Wir sind daheim by Moritz Eggert and the documentary film Im weißen Rössl at the Staatstheater Wiesbaden.
Mirjana Petercol is dedicated to animal welfare.
