- Hubertus Schmidt, Erfurt Germany
Hubertus Schmidt is one of the most remarkable trombone-soloists of our time. During his musical studies in Detmold, Berlin (Diploma with highest marks) and in the United States, his vast repertoire developed, as he regularly played in Festivals, Chamber-music series and Orchestras as soloist in Germany and abroad.
Especially inspiring was his work with Leonard Bernstein in 1988 where, as solo-trombonist, he performed in London, Moscow as well as in other metropolitan cities. After Hubie’s solo in Sibelius 7th symphony, Leonard Bernstein stated: “It sounds as if God spoke!”
After playing many sessions for the Paramount recording studio in Munich, Germany and doing many chamber brass and solo projects in Berlin, London and Vienna, he became the solo-trombonist of the State Orchestra of Halle (Staatskapelle Halle) in 1992.
He has built a solid solo career with intense working relationships with a couple of well known pianists and organists. He is regularly engaged with orchestras as soloist and has produced the famous CD “Belcanto” with the wonderful pianist Tomoko Sawano (University of High Arts, Berlin).
Other engagements include many recitals with Christian Meinel (Piano) as “Juilliard Duo,” Denny Wilke (Organ) with the “Lord of the Rings” soundtracks and also leading Masterclasses in Europe, Asia and the U.S.
