Ewa Lovrenović received her first oboe lessons at the age of ten, and shortly thereafter found her affinity for the English horn. While still attending high school, Lovrenović started her Junior studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz with Prof. Adi Traar at age 16. Luckily, she was studying at the Musikgymnasium Graz (a high school focusing on music), and thus was allowed to stay away from school for several weeks to play orchestra and opera productions with the university. She finished her Bachelor studies with memorable honors.
For her Master’s, Lovrenović completed a year of Erasmus in Munich, Germany, where she studied with Munich Radio Philharmony's principal oboe, Prof. Jürgen Evers. During that time, she met Prof. Heike Steinbrecher, Solo English horn with the Bavarian State Opera, with whom she immediately took private lessons. Mrs. Steinbrecher had a huge impact on Lovrenović's musical education. She was the first oboist specializing in English horn with whom Ewa Lovrenović studied. For this reason, she went to Augsburg to take a second Master with Prof. Steinbrecher, after finishing her first Master’s in Austria with memorable honors, as well.
In 2016, Lovrenović won the first prize at the John Cage Competition as an English horn soloist. She was offered the position of Solo English horn with the Symphony Orchestra of Graz with which she played from 2017 until 2019.
In 2018 Lovrenović moved to Erfurt for a fellowship with Erfurt Opera for oboe and English horn. One year later, she was given a temporary contract with the same orchestra. As a substitute she has also worked with Staatskapelle Weimar, Enoch zu Guttenberg and the Orchester der KlangVerwaltung, Jenaer Philharmoniker, Bayerische Philharmonie and Neue Philharmonie München. She joined masterclasses with François Leleux, Christian Hommel - Ensemble Modern - and Gareth Hulse (RCM London).
Ewa Lovrenović also studied conducting, but felt her calling more strongly to orchestral playing. Nevertheless, the knowledge she gained from conducting provides her with insights that she would otherwise not have had without that education. It is perhaps for that reason, that, although being a musician, she is very eager to look outside the box. In the last few years, it was the world of fine arts and astrophysics to which she was especially devoted.
One might meet her sitting at the opera house with either books about Renaissance Music, famous painters or Stephen Hawking.
