About Korbinian

The vio­lin­ist Korbin­ian Altenberg­er is an estab­lished and much appre­ci­at­ed soloist and cham­ber musi­cian worldwide.

After sev­er­al years of study­ing and per­form­ing in the USA, he returned to his home­town Munich to take the posi­tion of con­cert­mas­ter of the 2nd vio­lins at the Bavar­i­an Radio Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra.
Pre­vi­ous­ly, he was first con­cert­mas­ter at the Cologne Radio Sym­pho­ny Orchestra.

With 12 he made his debut at the Salzburg Fes­ti­val, win­ning numer­ous prizes at inter­na­tion­al com­pe­ti­tions such as the Postac­chi­ni Com­pe­ti­tion, Michael Hill Vio­lin Com­pe­ti­tion, Con­cours Inter­na­tion­al de Vio­lon Tibor Var­ga and at the Mon­tre­al Inter­na­tion­al Music Competition.

As a soloist, he has appeared with the Orchestre Nation­al of the Pays de la Loire, Auck­land Phil­har­mon­ic Orches­tra, Munich Cham­ber Orches­tra, Göt­tin­gen Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra and the SR & SWR Sym­pho­ny Orches­tras.
In North and South Amer­i­ca, he recent­ly per­formed with the Win­nipeg Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra, the Philadel­phia Cham­ber Orches­tra, the Iris Orches­tra and the Nation­al Orches­tra of Cos­ta Rica.

Korbin­ian received spe­cial musi­cal impuls­es through his cham­ber music col­lab­o­ra­tions with artists like Shmuel Ashke­nasi and Ger­hard Schulz, Leon Fleish­er, Mit­suko Uchi­da and mem­bers of the Guameri, Juil­liard and Cleve­land Quartets.

His enthu­si­asm for cham­ber music was strong­ly influ­enced by repeat­ed invi­ta­tions to var­i­ous fes­ti­vals in the USA (Ravinia, Caramoor and Marl­boro) as well as in Europe, for exam­ple Prus­sia Cove in the UK, Ver­bier in Switzer­land, the Moritzburg Fes­ti­val and the Israeli Cham­ber Project.
