Biography

Greta Funk's first experience with music began when she started taking piano lessons at the age of seven. Along with her classical training, she started playing and harmonizing melodies she heard in films and on television. She was particularly taken with Romantic music, and along the way she began composing her own pieces. While continuing her training in piano and voice, Ms. Funk studied musicology, psychology, and English at the University of Zurich. In the middle of a productive career as a social worker, she followed a desire to return to music and completed a course in music education at the Zurich Conservatory of Music. After working as a music teacher for several years, she pursued a course of study in composition and arrangement, also at the Zurich Conservatory of Music. Her duets for violin and piano (Gerron and Valse Sentimental) are a result of this coursework. Both pieces reveal her fondness and talent for sentimental-melancholy melodies that are intended to move those who hear them. Bruno Uetz Publishers will release both pieces toward the end of 2014.
