Wolfgang Wipfler, Horn

Wolfgang Wipfler, Horn

Whole and Gloria! You need a horn player like Wolfgang for that. His horn playing sounds romantically beautiful and then again wonderfully heroic. Wolfi loves digging up classic repertoire treasures.

In the course of his long career, Wolfgang Wipfler has gone through all the stations that enrich the life of a horn player. He was principal horn of the Württemberg State Opera in Stuttgart, the HR Symphony Orchestra and since 2004 has held the same position with the SWR Symphony Orchestra (formerly RSO Stuttgart). As a member of the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra, he shaped its special sound for many years.

Wolfgang Wipfler was born in Baden-Baden. He started playing in early ages the organ and then horn. He completed his studies in the legendary class of Prof. Penzel at the Cologne Music Academy. His orchestra career began as a member of the European Community Youth Orchestra (ECYO).

Wolfgang Wipfler is high regarded chamber music partner, as evidenced by numerous CD and radio productions. In addition, he is in great demand as a teacher. He has been teaching for many years at the Stuttgart Music Academy and gives regularly courses in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the USA.
