Annemarie Federle is Principal Horn of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Aurora Orchestra, and she regularly appears as guest principal with other major orchestras in the UK, including the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Philharmonia and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestras. 

Annemarie was a grand finalist in the BBC Young Musician 2020 competition, performing Ruth Gipps’ Horn Concerto with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2021, she was a semi finalist in the prestigious ARD International Music Competition and winner of the Gianni Bergamo Classic Music Award. Following these successes, Annemarie has enjoyed a diverse solo career, performing concertos with the LPO, English Chamber Orchestra, and London Mozart Players, among others, and recitals across the UK and Europe, including at the KKL Lucerne. 

Originally from Germany, Annemarie grew up in Cambridge and is now in her final year of studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Aurora Memory

My favourite Aurora memory so far would have to be our performances of Beethoven 7 at Printworks in November 2021. The layout, lighting, sound system and everything in between was so different to any concert I had ever done before; it was also great to see completely new audiences to introduce people to classical music, and it was amazing to have such a positive response from them.
