Martin Angerer


The trumpeter Martin Angerer, who was born in 1977 in Graz, was accepted into the University for Music and Performing Arts in his native city in 1992, where he graduated from the class of Stanko Arnold. After his master of arts examination, which he earned with distinction, he decided to undertake additional studies in Sweden with Bo Nilsson and Håkan Hardenberger. Angerer concluded his training with Hans Gansch at the Salzburg Mozarteum. In numerous master classes, such as with Maurice André, Pierre Thibaud, and Adolph “Bud” Herseth, he gained additional important sources of inspiration. Having won multiple awards at national and international competitions, he has been a member of the ensemble Wiener Collage since 1996, which is supported by the Vienna Philharmonic and works regularly with well-known contemporary composers; he also belongs to the group The Art of Trumpet Vienna. Angerer had his first permanent engagement in 2000, when he was appointed first trumpet of the Graz Symphony Orchestra. Daniel Barenboim engaged him as principal trumpeter of the Staatskapelle Berlin in 2007; there he has also taught as a mentor in the orchestra’s Academy. Since 2011 he has held the same position with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Angerer has performed as a guest artist with the Vienna Staatsoper Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic, the Filarmonica della Scala, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. He has appeared at the Salzburg and Bregenz Festivals and undertaken tours to many European countries, as well as the United States and Japan.
