BIOGRAPHY Prof. Peter Körner, Trombone

Peter Körner, born in Warendorf, Germany in 1974, started  trombone lessons at the age of 16.  By age 18, under the tutelage  of Oliver Siefert of the Frankfurt RSO, he began his studies in  Weimar and later in Munich.

 

His professors Armin Bachmann and Wolfram Arndt and their  respective schools have deeply imprinted themselves upon his  playing.  Also, other teachers over the years have impacted his  playing:  Branimir Slokar from Freiburg, Michael Mulcahy from  Chicago a nd Tobias Füller of Düsseldorf.  He has been able to  incorporate their differing styles into his everyday playing.

 

After instructing more then 15 years as part of the music faculty of  Bilkent University, and at the same time as co - principal of the  Bilkent Symphony Orchestra, along with his wife, Aslı, former  concertmaster of the State Opera in Ankara, Peter took a position  as Assoc. Prof. Dr. at the State Conservatory of the Uludag University in Bursa.  He is  instructing students at the university as well  as at a special conservatory for prep students.

 

Beside developing new trombone technology and mouthpieces for Thein Instruments, Peter  is also engaged in writing articles and books.  His works include his doctoral thesis on  breathing techniques, as well  as a recently published book in conjunction with Heinrich  Thein entitled, “World of Alto Trombone”, recently published by Martin Schmid in March  of 2015. 

 

In addition to alto and tenor trombones, Peter is actively performing on the Euphonium  and the Bass Trumpet with different orchestras.  He performs chamber music as well,  appearing with the Brass Quintett Brassmania, the trio Orient Express, as well as his solo  work:  One Night in the Opera
