Peter Steiner in Recital

Lani Hall View Program

Join the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music as we welcome world-renowned trombonist Peter Steiner for a recital in the intimate setting of Lani Hall.

 

About Peter:

Italian trombonist Peter Steiner’s playing has been described as “beautifully controlled with a vocal sound” and he is recognized around the world as “a new trombone star within his generation” who “plays with total control”. In 2019 he was honoured as a Prize Winner at the XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition in Russia.

 

His 2023/2024 season will feature the World Premiere of Kevin Day’s Double Concerto No. 2 together with pianist Constanze Hochwartner and the Fort Worth Symphony, as well as performances of Ferdinand David’s Concertino with the Philharmonisches Orchester Würzburg and Bartlesville Symphony Orchestra. He will also perform the Concerto by Derek Bourgeois together with the Taipei Chinese Orchestra.

 

At the age of 23, Peter Steiner was appointed Trombonist of the Vienna State Opera and Vienna Philharmonic for the 2016-2017 season. Prior to that engagement he served as Principal Trombonist with the Colorado Symphony for the 2014-2015 season. He has performed as guest trombonist with the Munich Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Dresden, New York Philharmonic, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony Orchestra and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

 

Mr. Steiner has soloed with numerous ensembles around the world including, most recently, the Mariinsky Orchestra and Orquestra Sinfõnica Brasileira in Rio de Janeiro. He has had the privilege of performing the world premiers of Eric Ewazen’s “Visions of Light” (Chamber Orchestra Version) and Gilles Rocha’s “Fly or Die” with Brass Band accompaniment. He can be heard on his debut album, UNITED, which was released in January 2017 under the HELLOSTAGE Label, in collaboration with Hsiao-Ling Lin (piano) and Silver Ainomäe (cello). His second album, SAPPHIRE was released in July 2019 under the Berlin Classics label, in collaboration with pianist Constanze Hochwartner. His third album BINARY STAR in collaboration with Constanze Hochwartner was released in May 2021, again under the Berlin Classics label. His most recent release is The First Noël, a Christmas Journey – together with his duo partner.

 

Mr. Steiner began his studies at the Music Conservatory in his hometown of Bolzano, Italy before continuing his studies at The Mozarteum of Salzburg (Austria). In 2016 he graduated from The Juilliard School in New York City with a Performance Diploma. His major teachers and influences include Joseph Alessi, Warren Deck, Nitzan Haroz, and Dany Bonvin.

 

Mr. Steiner performs exclusively on Bach Trombones - his signature is the Artisan 47XPS.
